Who carries a 1st Aid kit when they ride?
Who here carries a 1st Aid kit when they ride? I like to be prepared for unforeseen scenarios and would like to have appropriate supplies on-hand for a roadside emergency. Any suggestions, links, and photos are appreciated.

yep just something simple.
I got a small emergency case from the auto parts place, has 1st aid, jumper cables, triangles, some tools, ect… you can get different ones.
Make up your own. Be sure to have a tourniquet and large bandages for road rash.
Most importantly, get trained in first aid and basic life saving skills.
I’ll add, surgical gloves and a barrier mask to provide CPR, to the tourniquet and large bandages. Everything else can be handled by the ambulance and EMTs. You just want to control bleeding and ensure breathing.
I carry my ifak from deployment
I agree with Gary C., basic stuff plus the gloves & neon yellow vest.\nAll this stuff, equals about the size of a half a loaf of bread.\nA small pittance to give up for room, for helping.
FYI, I was a licensed EMT, LEO, and am a combat vet. So I have a decent amount of emergency response & aid training. \n But I totally agree with the suggestions that training and knowledge are priority #1.
Yep got a rather in depth kit ,
Mandatory in Czech, no discussion with a cop
Add benadryl for bee stings . a friend who was allergic got stung and had to be airlifted. It would have helped him
Always. I am the safety director for the colorado group. Take the accident scene management class from ABATE or MSF. worth it and gives you all the tools for a possible road side emergency. It also gives a great list of items to carry. If you have a safety director for your local chapter tgey would have the details, if not message me, I’ll get you the info for your state.
Great idea, got one, like a spare tire, don’t want, good to have!
Former Mass Casualty, First Responder, Tourniquet as a most likely needed tool in cycle crash, other basic first aid stuff in kit.
For very basic kit, Duct (gaffer?) tape and gloves plus a little supply of saline tubes
First aid kit, tool kit, tire repair kit, air pump.
In my cage I carry custom made heavy duty jumper cables, tow rope, 2 first aid kits, 2 fire extinguishers, 3 gallons gas plus oil & water, flares, flash lights & batteries, triangle reflector & some basic tools. \nOn my bike (for out of town trips) it’s a smaller & condensed version consisting of 1 first aid kit, flares, flashlight & xtra batteries, mini fire extinguisher, tire kit & air pump & basic tools (lg & sm cresents, multi-tip screw driver, lg & sm needle nose vise grips plus folding Allen & Torx tip sets & a small diameter 8′ piece of siphon hose. \nIf I’m going cross country I usually carry a 2 gallon jug of gas too. Can’t tell you how many people I’ve rescued off the road.
I carry an IFAK with a tourniquet, Quick Clot hemostatic agent, compression bandage, chest seal, etc.
Took an ABATE rider safety class. Bandages, barrier for mouth to mouth resuscitation, splint, wound cleaning solution…..
I carry two pistols and two flasks.
Coworker was a.medic in Iraq. We discussed kits & he kept one in vehicle. Last year, two idiots in road rage clipped his truck, he flipped, rolled & landed upside down on guardrail. He lost his hand in the process. An off duty SP used my friends turnaquete & he talked the Trooper through it, and saved his own life as he would have bled out. I am proud to know him.
I have a small kit that i bought at a pharmacy just in case. It will stop any bleeding or bandage a scrape. Its small and takes up no room.
Small med kit bought at any cvs is sufficient. Duct tape, electrical tape, wire ties, tire kit w/pump, battery connector with jumper ends (plugs into batt charger that is already connected to battery) Small tool bag (basic set that you can get at any bike shop). A cigarette lighter (just in case), cigarette charger for the phone or any electronic device. Plenty of water and Gatorade for day trips.
