Hey RG

I bought my first HD RG a couple weeks ago. Its a 2012 with a years warranty left. My question is what are tools that I should keep with me when riding. Im coming off of a streetwise so im sure its a bit different than what I had on that thing. :rolleyes:

what's a Streetwise? you'll want Allen wrenches,torx,SAE sockets/wrenches,and a 10mm for sure.I'm sure others will have more to add.

And don't forget a medium size LED flashlight so you can read your credit card and/or AAA card numbers when you phone for a tow after dark.

I was getting worried until I realized that you just saved the most important tool for last! :D

That's a very extensive list .... do you own a doomsday bunker as well? ;) Your tool kit far outweighs my mechanical ability. That looks like the list of tools my father would have carried, of course he was an excellent mechanic.

He carries that in the other saddlebag for balance :D
I'm thinking it would have to be an old slate or soapstone sink to balance that tool kit out.

I think "Triple J" got the list right. I cannot think of anything else you would want for tools. I also like the roll up tool kit. It seems it would store nicely in the saddlebags. I once had to duct tape a 3-cell maglight to my handlebars so I could see to get home from being out in the middle of the desert at night. That was a fun ride. After that evening, I started carrying tools that rivals "Triple J's" list. It's better to have them and not need them, than to need them and not have them. -Like a gun.

Great Laughs/Great Info

I see that the forum has it's share of funny guys! I love it already. I'll be sure to turn off the autocorrect before posting next time. One last question(clears throat): where can i buy this laundry list kit?

Let me guess: the dealer, right?:D
