most things i take on a trip i don't use. some say if you didn't use it on your last trip, don't take it next time. but i disagree. i've never used my S&G tire plug kit, but i always carry with me, even in town. always have my tool kit under the seat that includes everything i need to basically work on the bike anywhere.
what we take should reflect where we're going on our trip and what we plan to do, as well as precautionary things to get use out of a pickle, like a tire kit, mini compressor, duct tape, a quick stand to raise the rear wheel, etc. ..... i bring a extra clutch cable too, but I'm paranoid.
every person is different, but there will be a lot of overlap re what different people will choose to take.
one thing i take too much of is clothes. i usually don't wear half of what i take.
