jlgale wants to know Dino or Syn?
After pricing Craftsman tools, I picked up a Windzone EK 1HD Motorcycle Tool Kit for Harleys. I'm not very handy but hope someone would stop to help is

Out of all of the things people mentioned, I don't remember seeing a spare headlight bulb. I guess nobody rides at night?

Usually when a bulb goes its a high or low beam but not both at same time. If you're on a FL with passing lights your covered there too. My headlight bulbs are halogens and i wouldn't want to be carrying one around, they aren't cheap and i don't think they take well to being excessively handled or jostled around say in the bottom of a tool bag or saddlebag.

Hey thats an idea. Just keep your bike or truck in good order, and you will never have to worry about a break down.

I have carried an old one that has dim or bright burnt out. Not sure if I do at the moment.

Between the passing lamps and still having dim or bright, I haven't pverly worried. But you are right it is not a bad idea.

I have the Cruz Tools H3 kit. Has everything I have ever needed, and more. Great kit, very complete. And only $100 new.

Michael Psycle is reading this now saying WTF is this?
I went to the International Motorcycle Show today in San Mateo and picked up another "tool" for my one the road took kit. I wouldn't exactly call it a "tool" but it is. It is a roll of Rescue Tape. It is self fusing and adheres to itself when wrapped around something. It is waterproof, airtight, almost fireproof. Should something come loose on the bike on the road, I figure this could be a trip saver.

This is a great thread. The only thing i have every broken that left me standing was a shift linkage. I limped it in 4th gear to the next town and bought an allen set to work on it. Now I have a small tool kit in the bag.

I'm in the process of putting a small tool kit together my dang self. The other day, one of my footpegs decided to comes loose and it was a little sketchy riding with it spinning loose on me.

I'll probably just put some real basic multi-use tools, allen, torx bits, some pliers, and so on and so forth. Nothing too heavy. Good thread.

I did 3 years, and about 60K miles, running Iron-Butt style endurance rallies. During that time, I learned (usually the hard way) what to carry and the best way to carry it. With this stuff, I've been able to do many different permanent or temporary repairs at roadside.

Note: some of this is unique to my bike... a 2006 Ultra Classic.

-Torque wrench
-full set of sockets, torx sockets, ratchet extenders, and spark plug socket
-full hex set
-multi-purpose screwdriver that comes with the Ultra Classic
-multi-purpose tools that come with the Ultra Classic (mainly for the 10mm crescent for the battery posts)
-full set of crescent wrenches
-vice grip
-magnetic wand
-spares of all fuses
-oil filter wrench
-regular & needle nose pliers
-wire cutters
-spare electrical wire
-electrical tape
-spare tourpak latches (go through one of these every season)
-spare saddlebag screws (go through a couple of these every season)

All that stuff I keep in these special tool pouches that occupy the dead space at the bottom of my saddlebags, taking up virtually no real storage space. Check them out at storagepouches dot com.

Other stuff I keep in my tourpack:
-large package of zip ties in multiple sizes
-roll of duct tape
-spare bulbs for headlight & passing lamps
-2 different tire puncture repair kits
-portable air compressor
-spare spark plugs
-1 quart of SYN3
