Peter & Kay Forwood Round The World Trip on a Harley-Davidson Motorcycle

The following is a list of all items carried and their approximate location on the motorcycle as at 1/4/04. As we are travelling for such a long period we are more concerned with comfort and convenience rather than being totally weight and space oriented. The motorcycle is always fully loaded. We reduce items when we feel we are overloaded or haven't used the item for a reasonable period of time. The list is constantly changing, with items being added and some being sent home or discarded as their use fluctuates. The spare parts are a combination of parts we have already used and replaced (worn but not broken), new parts to replace those we expect to break and where we have replaced parts in the past, often we have purchased two replacements, one to use now and one we keep as a spare. Whilst the list is extensive most parts are small and either difficult or impossible to obtain in many places we are travelling or their breaking would result in an immobile motorcycle. We prefer to be as self contained for repairs as possible. The tools are what we have found we need for the repairs we are capable of on the road. The medical kit has been generally unused (thankfully) other than antibiotics or mild pain killers.
