Not trying to be morbid here, just wondering how many tourers take along next of kin info while out on tour.
I have an envelope in my vehicle with a note about who to notify should I get hurt (unconscious) with organ donor info & the like. But never thought of taking it along on the bike before.
It's not morbid--and actually--is an ounce of prevention. Identification--just makes health care workers have an easier time for doing their job. Wearing the bracelets for allergies and sensitivities--is a very good idea. Having contact numbers-goes a long way for getting medical info and support from your significant others.
It's actually very prudent.
I am strictly a road rider and I carry ID, contact info and Med card in my saddle bag. On side of my helmet I have 1) my name; Contact (my wife's) name; Telephone Nos.; and NO MEDS, NO ALERGY;
