Manual and basic tool kit (should come with the bike but on a lot of used bikes they are missing).

Insurance!

A healthy respect for the road and a wary eye for the idiots around you. :p

Thanks for the heads up. I had never heard of baling wire before. Any interesting uses you've come across on a motorcycle?

Oh, and I forgot that I keep a few feet of paracord with me as well.

Ever since I broke a clutch cable 75 mi. from the house, I carry an extra one with me. Plus spare bulbs in my tool bag along with a small flashlight.

Remember the old commercial "Don't leave home without it?"

How about a credit card for those unexpected emergencies? (Or for that fine for gliding through Podunk USA's speed trap)

Sorry you have not heard of it,
It is used to tie bails of hay, not so much anymore, it has been replaced by bailing twine( a much inferior product) to a large extent.

And yes, I have used a ton of if. It was the duct tape before duct tape, and I might add, a hell of alot tougher than tape.

Wire up a fender, a tail pipe, muffler and on and on:D
