Default What are your "must haves" at all times in your storage bags

I have a 2006 Vegas with just a tool roll and a tail bag, so I have very limited space so I was wondering what are the things you always carry to help you out in a pinch? And of course i don't want to overpack. I still need room the occasional purchase.

Leatherman or other specific tools?
Hand wipes or hand towels?
Tie wraps, black tape?
rain jacket?

Or maybe I should say " What are your top 5 things to bring at all times?"

Every time you put a wrench to the bike when your in the garage think do you need it in the bag.
Medium size crescent wrench. That should cover all the bolts. Any thing bigger you can't fix on side of road. Zip ties small amount of electric tape. Few allen wrench if you can find multi head screw driver.
Right now put a locker washer on each battery bolt so they don't come loose on you.

I'm trying to think of what I ALWAYS have on the bike. Really, all I carry is the OE toolkit.

On day trips I'll bring warmer gear (liners for chaps and jackets, warm gloves, something to cover my face). On multi-day trips I ALWAYS have cold weather gear, rain gear, a small compressor, a tire plug kit, and a paper map. And water and snacks, but I ride a bagger and have some pretty good-sized luggage to hang on the bike too,

You can call me Billy. Or Luci. But don't call me Shirley.
