Best in the West !
Carrying the right tools and equipment may prove very important out there on the trail.
Carry the tool kit that came with your machine, and add some spare parts like spark plugs, some bail wire (very important!) and duct tape (always so useful).
Tow strap ( good and strong, 6 ft. at least). You can buy a good nylon strap
at any Army Navy Surplus store.
Drinking Water (plenty). Heat exhaustion sneak up on you! You have to
force yourself to drink lots of water.
Weather proof matches and space blanket.
Tire repair kit and some fix-a-flat compound.
If venturing deep in the forest, carry a First Aid kit.
Maps of the area and some food (snacks at least).
Some warm clothing.
(some toilet paper may be good too).
