    Like....how out?
    If your just going on regular loads same shit you would bring on a normal road trip. If you are going out inna woods you are gonna wanna make sure you take the normal out things.

    In general on a motorcycle, take a set of hand tools that fit the bolts on the bike, an extra quart of oil, and alway have water, a tarp is a good idea as well.

    Worse case you get hit with a massive rain storn and will have to pull off the side of the road WELL OFF the side of the road and hunker down.

      At the end of a long day of dirt roads, I have no interest in shit like tent stakes. I just want to flip open the RTT and go to bed

    Tarp, sleeping pad, sleeping bag, gas station beef jerky, and a big hairy set of nuts is all you really need.

        Random cutblock not far from Bamfield, Vancouver Island. I did the Vancouver Island Grand loop in October 2020, had a blast.

    Get a tool bag that rolls up for basic motorcycle maintenance stuff. Like sockets, hex keys, tire repair kit, duckbill pliers and a socket wrench. Also they have handheld air compressors that are relatively light.

    All you need is a thong and some gas welding goggles.

    If you are going through the woods and unmaintained roads bring some recovery gear. rope/pulleys/prusiks/carabiners. best rest MRS is decent but you can throw something together pretty easily. Folding ames shovel too. Been having fun on the TW200, what are you riding?

      Lots in western US and Canada. This map doesn't even show the massive network of forest service roads and off road management access areas. I've made it from Gold River to Port Alice without touching pavement.

    Tool bag, top case for storage, dry bag for clothes, some sort of navigation device (like those china CarPlay screens), extra tank if you're feeling spicy

    Toss like 6-10 big ass zip ties in there.
    If you get a flat, you can zip tie your tire to the wheel in 3-5 places to keep it from coming off the wheel or spinning around the wheel.

    A bottle of water and change of clothes.
    Some people like to bring such a big tool kit they could rebuild the whole bike. I think the usefulness of extensive tools is limited considering you won't be carrying many spare parts. I bring spare levers, a tube patch kit or tire plug kit depending on whether it's tubeless, and the tools to get off my levers and wheels.

    Don't over think it. You WILL forget something, you WILL need something you didn't think of, and you Will need to make stops to resupply along the say no matter how autistic your planning is. I wrung hands for 6 months before I set out and ended up needing to stop by REI on like day 3. Ended up covering over 5k miles in about 3 months before I ran out of money. All my gear was leftover from boy scout shit as a kid, hand me downs, cheap milsurp, Walmart tier crap. I couch surfed for the occasional hot meal and shower, mainly stealth camped. Best time to go is right away, but for the love of god have $1-2k cash because something is gonna come up and you'll need it. I'd have had another 6-9 months in my trip if I'd have more cash, but i only had about $700 when I set out and refused to panhandle, though some kind souls did donate groceries to me on a couple occasions in addition to the couch surfing.
