No matter what bike I have owned, there have always been a few things that I keep with me all the time, just in case. With the Goldwing, its easy to let this list of things expand as the storage space is so extensive (I have a 2016 ABS model). But in truth, I find that most of what seems like essential things to carry have never, ever been used, and others have hardly ever been needed. So sometimes I think about leaving much of this stuff behind, but then I say to myself, why bother? Even with all of my normal stuff, I still have enough storage room for putting my helmet and jacket and gloves under lock and key when stopped for a meal or other reason. My normal list of items includes: rain suit, small tool bag, first aid kit, flat tire kit, some printed maps, 1 pair summer extra gloves, one pair winter extra gloves, a plastic bag with a wet micro fiber cloth for cleaning the windscreen and a dry one for drying it off, baseball cap, a bag of little items such as ear plugs, tire pressure gauge, Tylenol, a few band aids, pack of tissues, small flashlight, multi tool, small knife. What do you keep with you on the bike all the time?
