Waterproof Motorcycle Emergency Kit
I have always enjoyed shopping around looking for deals on everything and I can vision alternate uses for just about everything…. No I am not a hoarder, well, umm, hmm, no I am definitely not a hoarder. I’m ahhh um, whats the word… FRUGAL yeah thats it, that’s me. Actually I think I am more of the practical type.. with a dose of frugal tossed in. But enough about me.
While shopping at our warehouse bulk store, we came across this handy emergency kit, although it is geared for nautical use we seen it as waterproof :). But will it work in the motorcycle world? To answer that… YES it will work for you on your bike, in your car, just about any situation it will work for you.
And here is what came with our safety kit:
- Premium carrying case:
– Molded heavy duty, water resistant PVC tarpaulin material
– Waterproof EVA base
– Oversized padded handles
– Premium carry straps
– Large, easy grip zipper with rain flap
– Interior pockets, zippered mesh pocket on lid, 2 side – pockets and detachable waterproof pocket
- 1.17 m (46 in.) long 3-piece telescopic oar with handle, aluminum shaft with durable oar blade and reinforced coupling
- 15.2 m (50 ft.) buoyant throw and tow rope
- Dynamo 3-LED flashlight, waterproof, shock resistant with rubberized ends
- 1.4 L (48 oz.) capacity bailer, with handle
- 9 attachment multi-tool, sleek, ergonomic design, includes carrying case
- 60-piece first-aid kit in a zip lock bag
- Pea-less marine whistle, easy blow, high shrill sound
- Liquid filled compass with ring and strap
- Duct tape roll, 5.1 cm x 4.6 m (2 in. x 5 ft.)
- Fuel siphon pump
- Reusable premium rain poncho
Hard to turn down such a great piece of kit for the $35-50 price range, we took out the oar, kids use it now, and the booster cables went in my old truck.. so a win all the way round.
We added a few more items to our kit, such as emergency blankets and first aid supplies from various smaller kits we had around the house, and put them in a dry sac…. again with the dry sacs…. well I think they are the best thing going, after motorcycles of course.
Thankfully we have not had to put this kit to any emergency use yet, but it is packed and ready to go with us. We go thru it every few months to make sure everything is still in good condition, and nothing expired.[phpbay keywords=”adventure medical kits, emergency survival kits” num=”2″ siteid=”1″ sortorder=”BestMatch” templatename=”default” paging=”true”]
Having the kit ready and able to use is a great first step in any emergency situation, remember to play safe and keep the miles rolling by.[phpzon keywords=”adventure medical kits, emergency survival kits” num=”2″ country=”US” trackingid=”stinsoadvent-20″ templatename=”default” paging=”true”]
An after thought about this article, who has done a standard first aid training, CPR training, or even better first responder training?
If considering enjoying your motorcycles in groups or with a partner, maybe it would be a good idea to have someone in your group with some form of first aid training…. I have first aid with CPR, and would consider taking first responder training if the opportunity arose, just some food for thought.
