    I "usually" don't carry a spare. But I have on both my trips to HMT. When riding there we can get very far from our camp. If I had a flat and needed a spare it would really interrupt the entire day for the whole party. And with only three days to ride that's a major interruption. Out of consideration for the "group" I do carry it then.

    When riding around my place up North I usually do not have a spare with me, but it is in the truck, or at my place.

    Excellent point!

    We had three Wolverines in our group on Friday. I should carry a spare front wheel on my roof. That and a shovel. I’ll plan on these before the next WV trip.

    Even though I don’t usually carry a spare I have a very well stocked cargo box with a LOT of tools in it. Including a small shovel, mechanics tools, jumper cables, air compressor, large tire repair kit, spare nuts/bolts/washers, three tow straps, shackle, a small Estwing camp axe, buck saw, machette, a full roll of T-P, and who knows what else. LOL. I did impress my fellow riders on the HMT when I pulled out my Estwing and buck saw to make quick work of an 8” diameter tree that completely blocking a trail with no way around. I got the “Boy Scout” award for that one. LOL.

    Spent a lot of time in the middle of nowhere on SXS and motorcycles. Never carried a spare, always carried an inner tube, patch kit, tire irons and air supply. Have used them all many times and always got out.
