Default Silly tool kit question

Just bought my 2014 CC, scanning through the manual it shows an onboard tool kit, but doesn't tell you where it's located. I looked under the side panels where they generally are but did not see it, unless it is well disguised or hidden.
Am I overlooking it or just don't have one?

Make your own kit--4, 5, 6 and 8 mm allen wrenches will take care of most jobs on the road. But chances are best they will collect dust. These Victorys ain't no H-D, they hold together.

I ride with mostly H-Ds that are a lot newer than my 2010 XR and I can't count the times a chapter member had a problem with their H-D...even brand new ones. Mostly serious stuff too. All the Vics I know have been flawless except one that had a clutch basket break and that appears to have been caused by the incorrect placing of the retaining ring. It was repaired under warranty.

Just the opposite here. We ride with many Harley's on the weekend and thru the week. No problems noticed, bikes all seem to be running very well. Say whatever you want about Harley, they are here, and will be in the foreseeable future. Nothing wrong with a Victory, not nearly enough riders feel as you do.

Made me laugh there a minute. I bought my 2013 XCT used last Jan. I have not even thought to look for a tool kit until I read this. But as was said its probably pretty much useless. Last couple bikes I have had, the tool kits were still there. But they simply contain a flip screw driver (how many flat head screws you seen ) a plug socket. Usually you couldnt get it in and a plug out with it anyways and some stamped out wrenches. Any more you would never be able to change a tire on the side of the road on one of these beasts anyways.
