I have personal survival supplies in a little zippered shaving kit in an aluminum chest tied strapped to rack (padded with pool noodles to eliminate vibrations, pool noodles are split to wrap around rack tubes … so also double as kneeling pads). there is foldable saw. small hand held butane torch (fuck the matches), magnifying glass, multi-tool, one of those light weight reflective blankets, small bottle of hand sanitizer for cleaning skin scrapes, sanitizing pads, bandages, acetaminophen, ibuprofen.  my asthma meds,  Additionally I carry water and typically granola bars.  bug dope, bug hat, small tarp, roll of nylon twine/chord, hatchet, gallon of gas.  channel locks, adjustable wrench (need a metric socket set in there), 2 sizes of blade and Philips screw drivers.  spare wire, wire crimp tubes, wire stripper crimper, electrical tape, head band led flash light, spare fuses, no spare spark plug (need to remedy that), nothing for tires (need to resolve that), spare tie downs, (1 is 3 ton so can double as tow strap in pinch or mini come-along), of course have the winch.  I also carry a telescoping fishing rod 5' with an ice fishing reel (small) and a few bits of tackle... both for discovered fishing spots or to fee me if really stuck and water near by.

for my phone, as you can tell by my pic I am outdoors Winter, phones die so I bought a water proof neck strap... keep phone warm inside my jacket... screen allows for txting through the plastic.... my 12 volt accessories plug is dead need to replace so I carry a spare phone battery bank.  for GPS I generally use my phone, it is not ideal but better things to spend money on right now than the Garmin which I would love to have (have been lost in northern Ontario bush … not fun)… so I stick to well known or well travelled areas.

a friend told me once that getting a tube to insert into a dead tire, is good enough over a new tire, but is that really a field repair?

Lol. Today’s items that we all pack are much smaller.  When I rode w my friends back in the day it was gas and spark plugs.  After that it was throw it in the truck! 

But todays items like compressors, plug kits jumper packs etc are easy to take a long. Plus the new bags that they have to mount on your bike to store this shit are so cool and easy.

      Hi All,
      Want to show you one automotive show that I filmed in my town called Crazy Race. This was two day race in Qualifications round, Semifinals and Final. In this 4 parts I am showing best moments from all rounds and entertainment of the show.
      Crazy Race Part 2 contains a qualifying round where all riders race against each other, selected by lot and split by two. They are free to drive in any direction and to hit their opponent's car everywhere except at the driver's door. Anyone who intentionally hit the other car in the driver's door is disqualified. Winner of each race continue in the semifinal round. In this part I will present the best moments of the qualifying round! 
       
      Part 3 shows you the best moments from Day 2 - Semifinals and Final. Battles in the semifinals are among the winners of the first day races, but this time they are selected by lot and divided into 4 battles of 4-5 cars each. The rules in each battle are that they only have to drive in one direction and try to neutralize other opponents until there are only two players left. Then the battle between the two last drivers has the rule to drive in any direction until only one who has qualified for the final round is left. Again, anyone who intentionally hit the other car in the driver's door is disqualified.
      For the final round there were only two cars left, because the other two players who got the right to be there had problems with their car and could not participate.
       
      Part 4 containing entertainments between battles and winners rewarding.
      This event will have second round in 05-06 October 2019 and also will be filmed  For this new round I will filmed in many new angels and places. Will prepare a lot more videos and many new entertainments . This 4 videos was my first try so many things to wish for better filming in the future one.
      Hope you will like them and of course feel free to comment and to ask everything. Hope you will Subscribe to my channel and to be first to see my other content and of course new round of Crazy Race! Thanks!

      Hi guys I have a 2003 Arctic 250 4X4 it starts idles and runs great for about 10 min. then it spits and sputters and dies but it starts right up like nothing happened idles good till you give gas and it does it again let off the gas and it's idling great again this goes on for about 15 to 20 min. and then it takes off runs good all day like nothing was wrong.
      I cleaned the carburetor it looked like a new one inside found a little gunk in one orifice, new air filter no crimped lines air line to tank good I did put a meter on the battery idling it said 16.5 V that's high I think would a voltage regulator cause this?
      Suzuki shop wanted to sale me a stator for $556.00 but said it could be something else also thought I'd see what you guys say about it
      Thanks
