My left saddlebag carries: Tool kit, air compressor, tire repair kit, a bag with a about 10 bungees of different sizes, first aid kit, cribbage board, and 2 small shopping bags. The right saddle bag carries: 2-4 bottles of water at all times, and the bike cover.
The trunk carries: Spare light bulbs, spare grommets and push pins, extra gloves and head rags, towels to clean the bike with, air pressure gauge, black electrical tape, small tablet and writing instruments, and an atlas (I know!! I still use it even though I have a GPS unit on the bike.)
When I travel, I used the cloth saddle bag inserts, my top trunk rack bag, and my pack-it rack.

YOU ARE ENTITLED TO YOUR WRONG OPINION

I'm riding with JMartin. He's ready for the cooking and the drinking. Wonder if he's got any ice cream in there??

Strangely, Ice Cream is more and more the place I ride "to." But your sentiments are exactly why I carry what I do... I may or may not ever need all this stuff, but if someone I'm travelling with does... I get to be the hero.

Tools never used in a tool kit are a good thing.
Tools used to help others... are even better.

Here in MO we have the castle law and it applies to your auto as well. You no longer have to shoot them and drag them in. Just let em lay. Works for me. I've got a bad back. Most communities have open carry. We can open carry in the local Walmart. And we abolished CCW. If you're 21 and not a convicted felon just strap on as many as you want. For guns MO is a kick azz place to live.

I think we got away from the original subject which was what to carry in your saddlebags. I carry a lot of things in my saddlebags and in my camp trailer. Depending on where I am going and how long I am going to be on the road the list of things change. But I am always adjusting to include things I wished I had on a trip or throwing out the things that are just dead weight. I tend to take things that are just dead weight more times than not. So to add more junk, I just bought a french Coffee press. Coffee is a necessity no matter how far or long you go. Camping gear... hmmm well I have pulled a camper for many miles over the last few years and now I am ... I think I'll start another thread on that one.

Sandy I started the thread. If you want to talk about your camper I'm sure we will all be interested. I mean its not something I can see myself doing but I'm interested in all facets of motorcycling. Sometimes an idea for your camper can be adapted to suit my needs.
