Despite doing many wild camps on foot from the car, I haven't done one on the bike before.
So if someone has a kit list, I'd be grateful.
A bit extreme, but I generally use this as a kit list for my adventures:

Wet n Dry
Quick Steel
Tyre Levers (I now use motion pro T6 levers)
Breaker Bar for front sprocket nut and wheel nuts
30mm Socket, 24mm socket (now at end of motion pro T6 lever)
Chain Tool, Motion Pro (superlight weight)
Spare Chain Split Links 2x
1 x Motion Pro Trail Tool
Cable ties (stored around front forks)
Electrical Wire (10 Amp long enough to run from front to back of bike and back)
Rad Weld…but in granule form
Lighter
Duct Tape (full waterproof stuff) roll around a pen.
Elec Tape
Hacksaw Blade (300mm)
Puncture Repair Kit
Pump
Spare Tubes (I only carry levers and tubes and puncture repair kit etc if I’m not running mousses)

Bungies!!!!

To keep me happy

1/2 a toothbrush

Hello and welcome to ABR Richie. Louis is away playing in the sand in Morocco right now but the weekend is on. He'll add you to the list when he returns, I'm sure.

It would be a good idea to introduce yourself with a post over in the 'newbies' section, with a pic of your bike, of course :)

No probs Louis. As I've booked the weekend out with SWMBO I'm still going to head on over to Mid Wales and make it up as I go along.

If anyone else is still up for a trip to 'discover' the green lanes of Mid Wales post up below and we'll get something organisedish.
