Now that I'm back and driving my K6, 650 as my daily commute vehicle, I'm wondering what I need to carry with me and what others carry...

Under the seat, I have Frog Togs, a plastic bag with my insurance, registration, owner's manual, etc... What else would be recommended? I've carried a roll of toilet paper in the past because you never know... What else? Thanks!

Depends on the ride day. For commuting, not much more than what you listed. I like to keep the trunk available for shopping.

But for weekend outings, I keep a ride bag with everything from tire repair kit to blood clotting bandages. It takes up half the trunk, but it's got just about everything you'd need in an emergency.

An extra pair of socks will come in handy a lot more often than you'd think...

Basic tools (screwdriver, needle-nosed pliers, tiny air compressor) are a good idea too. Even if you don't know how to use them, someone else might.

I have a small nylon bag with a rain gear top (pants are waterproof), a tire plugging kit, and a small compressor. That takes about a quarter of the trunk space, leaving enough for my regular day bag (for lunch, e-reader, etc). I usually have a multi-tool, lighter, and flashlight with me, so I've got those angles covered as well. I think the tire plugger is a good thing to have, give that the wait for a tow truck is usually 30 - 45 minutes during rush hour. I can repair and reinflate a tire in 15 minutes or so (if the tire is repairable). I do my own tire changes, so if I can get home I can get things fixed.

Being a neighbor you should know that you never leave the house in Texas without water!

Aspirin or ibuprofen might be a good idea as well.
