    Deals Gap Gear thread 2006

    Since Mike has been overwhelmed this year with work a few have stepped up to help in planning this truip this year (thanks to all that have). I thought I would step up and start the old gear thread so we can make our lists of what to bring and get input from others of what else might be needed. Since the beer seems to be covered this year it will not be on the list!

    Here you go (copied from last years post and a few added);

    Leathers & Textile riding gear
    Rain Gear suit & Gloves
    Spare Key
    registration for bike
    Helmet ( Duh! )
    Both Clear & Smoke lenses for Helmet
    Helmet bag
    Tank Bag & Rain cover
    MAPS
    Earplugs
    Cell phones wall/outlet charger
    Tire Plug kit
    WD40
    Chain Lube
    Honda Polish & towel
    Extra Oil
    Antifreeze/coolant
    Brake Fluid
    Second set of rims/tires mounted Race tires!
    Duct tape/electrical tape
    Zip ties
    Bike Jumper cables
    Extra bulbs for lights
    Tire Gauge
    Riding Gloves, glove liners, waterproof gloves
    Daytona Rainproof boots & Sid Boots
    Small bottle with lens cleaner and a rag.
    Bucket with soap and sponge for washing bike.
    MP3 Player w/earplugs
    Valentine1 !
    Sunglasses
    front and rear stands
    swim trunks
    camping towel (for swims mid ride)
    chatterboxes (if you got em)
    back protector
    Flip Flops

    Hopefully this is a good start!

    Jamie

    Cool now I don't have to find "My" list!

    Thanks!

    Added to the list:
    DVD's
    GPS
    Sunglasses
    Spare fuses.
    spare oil filter.
    Enough oil for a oil change if needed. (Or if you go off roading and fuck up your filter you can replace it! BRENT!)
    Spare headlight/tail light bulbs ( Bruce/ KB ) You can't have mine this year, learn you lesson!
    Tire pressure gauge.
    Chain lube, and cleaning solvent and rags.

    Please bring your own maintenance supplies. Not everyone brings enough for everyone to use.

    One more WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We had a bulletcam 2 yrs ago and could not get it to work till the last day. Clayton figured it out. I think you had to set it to VCR or something like that
