Thanks for the great tool tips. I got my first bike a few weeks ago and I'm still learning to handle it. I took a corner a little too wide and the bottom of the bike hit the middle median causing the neutral safety under the kick stand to break. I was fortunate that a woman biker stopped and had the tools I needed to splice the wire and put them back together temporarily so I could get on my way. After that experience I will definitely be putting a tool kit and a few other mentioned items in my saddlebag.

Craftsman tools sold a kit for both domestic and import motorcycles and are still available on eBay. These are a great complete set of tools and include a roll pouch with a snap. Fits great in a fork tool bag!

Great tips from all. I have roadside assistance with my AMA membership, and thank my stars for a mechanical wiz for a boyfriend -- but my bike is still 26 years old! My tool kit contains most of the items listed, plus one more: my wits! Now, if I could just remember which direction I turned about 50 miles back. Kinda hard to tell somebody how to get to ya if ya can't tell them where you are! Some things only happen once.

I updated my list comparing it with your great suggestions for a tool kit while on the road. The only changes I would make to yours is if traveling on long road trips with other riders compare what you are taking as to not duplicate.

The other item was something that happened to someone else while on a road trip. I recommend carrying a pair of vise grips. A friend lost a shifter peg while on the freeway. It could not be found anywhere but someone came by and loaned them a vise grip to attach and use to shift until they were able to get to town to buy a new shifter peg.
