Re: A reminder about safety - Yeeeooow
Again, as anexperienced truck driver and avid BMW rider, it's a good idea to have at least a basic preventive safety kit with you on a tour ride. This would include a basic first aid kit. A small fire extinguisher, and four or five road flares. This can all be stored in the tail trunk or one of the saddle bags. You of course can add things like a mini-mag flashlight or the monster six cell one I carry! It's the old story, better to have it and not need it than the opposite. Of course if you are a medical doctor, nurse, emt paramedic; other first responder then you have proffessional training and may supplement with what you think is neccassary. You can also carry a laminated personal info card arround your neck listing your name, medical conditions if any, blood type, prescrip info if you are on any meds from your doctor.
