    I'm curious what tools y'all carry and how you organize your tools for cross country rides. I'll be doing a ride from Central Florida to New Mexico, up to Seattle, over to Sturgis and back to FLA this year and would like to get some ideas/input. The standards are a given, so extra special items that you have found convenient and your storage/organization is my main question.

    I'll be on an 05 FLHTpi

    Thanks for any input!

    Thanks Bodeen,
    That doesn't show any good pix, is it one of the ones that strap to your frame behind your forks or does it go into your bags? On a long trip storage space is going to be severely limited (especially with half of the right bag taken up by ABS.)

    Both the links provided give lots of great storage solutions to think about. Thanks for posting.

    Look at the picture in this link. These take up the space in between the ridges in the bottom of your saddlebags. They hold a surprising amount of stuff. I carry the Harley tool kit (the old one that had real wrenches), a cheap VOM, flashlight, spark plugs, headlight bulb, some misc. fasteners, tie wraps, power acc. cord for charging phone etc. There's probably more but that all I can think of now.

    I have a tool bag on both big twins each have a tool roll that I bought as an empty tool roll I then bought some tools that I thought would be useful at the side of the road some combination spanners, 8" adjustable spanner, pliers with side cutting, multi head screwdriver with magnetic pickup, plug spanner, set of allen keys, set of torx keys, spare spark plugs, selection of nuts bolts and washers, cable ties various sizes and some spare bulbs
    Some other bits and pieces that I cant remember
    In right side saddlebag some rags and a set of control cables clutch, throttle, idle
    In my wallet Automobile association gold card with full relay service when I go to mainland Europe I purchase European cover for the days that I am there

    So far have not required the breakdown cover and sometimes if I have a roadside problem I need something I do not have with me but I have always got home on my own

    Well to be truthful wee Honda cam chain jumped a tooth or two one time wife did not notice that I was not behind her till she got home but I probably could have pushed that bike the last 9 miles home but car and trailer were a wee bit easier

    Brian brings up a great point. I think my tool kit has been used to help someone else alot more times than I've needed it. That's what its all about in the end......

    Last couple times was for a member here...........................:shock
