    Next of Kin Info?

    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;

    peace

    My son gave me an ID to wear around my neck while riding. Check it out at http://www.roadid.com

    i carry photocopied drivers licence and passport details in my handlebar bag ...
    there was something going around about putting an entry into your cellphone address book, ICE or I.C.E. standing for In Case of Emergency ... then emergency services can contact next of kin more easily ...
    it was suggested [or resuggested] by an ambulance officer following the July 7th bomb-blasts in london ...
    thought for today: "Does my ass look fast on this bike?"
