Re: what in your road kit
I think for my purpose I tend to go with mike. If you are going to be out there alone you really should have enough tools to do minor things, Like tighten the chain or clean a spark plug. Re attach a cable that kind of thing. Almost all the stuff outside the bike is 10mm and most of the stuff on my bike is 14 15 17 mm. I think If I were going on a road trip for any length of time, I would want at least open end of those size wrenches. A good vise grip as well. I have patched my last inner tube, I'll just replace them if they go bad from now on.
Anyway I enjoy hearing what people carry so please continue.
