Hardcore Motorcycle Emergency Kit

Hardcore Motorcycle Emergency Kit

Like most riders, I’m pretty familiar with the basic essentials of a good motorcycle emergency kit. However, I recently came across an article by Zach Bowman in Motorcyclist magazine and his emergency kit recommendations definitely had me adding a few new items to my saddlebags. Check out his suggestions for gear you should always carry.




  1. Compact First-Aid Kit – Just the bare essentials, nothing fancy. This will take care of any minor abrasions and doesn’t take up much space.
  2. ZipStitch Laceration Kit – Lacerations happen. Depending on the injury, you might just need a quick fix before you can get yourself home or to a hospital. This kit works much better than the previous go-tos; super glue, duct tape or butterfly bandages.
  3. Gorilla Tape – More adhesive, more weather-resistant, and easier to work with than duct tape. This is perfect for patching torn gear, seats or saddlebags.
  4. J-B Weld Steelstik – This epoxy putty is perfect for quick fixes of anything metal. It sets in 5 minutes and tolerates heat of up to 300 degrees.
  5. Zip Ties – The ultimate multitool.
  6. Silicone Sealing Tape – U.S. Military approved. This stuff can handle up to 500 degrees and 950 psi. It’s perfect for repairing punctured radiator hoses and damaged wiring.
  7. Mechanics Wire – If it can’t be glued, taped or zip tied, it can be wired together.
