I'm no biker though, how I wish I was.......
One can never be too careful while biking and its better to be prepared. Accidents don't tell you before occurrence.
On Yogesh's suggestion I'm putting down a few essentials that all bikers ought to carry as first aid equipment. Actually applies to all travelers on BCMT, given that no one here believes in normal travel to 'family' destinations.
Here is a rough list of things one may need..
Soframycin/ betadine ointment
Savlon/ dettol lotion
Gauze- sterile...1-2 pkts
Large safety pins
Surgical Tape (micropore)
Sterile alcohol wipes
Anti-Diarrheal Medications: Norflox TZ
Anti mountain sickness (esp ladakh/ spiti tavelers)....Diamox tabs
Tweezers (pull out glass and other items imbedded in skin)
Oral rehydration salts (ORS)
Thermometer in hard case
Watertight container to store everything in
Will wait for feedback from everyone and we can update the list as we go along to make it a very comprehensive first aid kit.
