wont need a trailer. just a small backpack, small bag of jerky, huge bag of cash hahaha, and other things.

As for a police scanner it helps when you get bored on the highway.. just wonder if there would be anywhere to mount on a bike, now that i think about it..

As for "police scanner" really called a Radio Scanner, your best bet (not the cheapest one) is the Uniden Bearcat BCD396XT, it will pick up lot of Police, EMS & Fire frequencies.

it's gonna run you about $700 tho, it's a expensive investment but worth it in the long run.

The money I can understand, also the map, and these days the cell phone. But that's it.

If I was just going for a long day ride, the money is all I would take. Sometimes a map, and maybe wet weather gear. I seldom carry a cell phone.

If heading into a remote area (as is my wont), I would be inclined to carry a puncture repair kit, including tire irons and a pump. That has been useful on several occasions for me. I am not sure how I would get on with tubeless tyres. I would probably go for one of those aerosol things, though never had much joy with them for tubed tyres.

When touring for up to several weeks in Europe (several trips) I took camping gear, a change of trousers, several t-shrts etc, one "good" shirt, and a pair of sturdy sandals. I also carried a woolen long johns and t-shirt; sometimes needed in the Alps.

In NZ I might add some basic food supplies as well as fishing and snorkeling gear.

I enjoy riding, but obviously the ride that is not the be all and end all for me. I often ride to get somewhere, and to do something when I get there. To me, a bike should be able to carry what I need.

I have usually bungied the camping gear on the back, and the other gear in a bag on the tank... would probably need a different solution for the CBR250R.

Having done a lot of seasonal farm work, I have often also carried sheep shearing, fencing or other gear. No problem for my "naked" CB250RS, and CB350's, but I feel the CBR250R in its present guise need not apply!
