Default What tools are carried

Okay all! As I'm in my second riding season, I would like to know what tools all of you are carrying on a long ride as My bike came with no tool bag other then a Allen wrench above the battery. This would be for a 2004 Vegas.
Thanks for the help

The most important tools are a cell phone and a credit card In addition to what others suggest, I recommend taking a spare clutch cable or a sav-your-ride clutch cable and the wrenches needed to remove the old and install the new clutch cable. I also carry a small spool of wire for temporarily holding things. This is not electrical wire but, rather, strong wire that you could wrap around some parts and twist together to hold something in place temporarily.

Cheap slime tire plug kit from walmart with a small tube of self vulcanizing rubber cement from a bicycle shop inside. A small compressor with battery clamps cut off and a battery tender plug put on in place. One that plugs into the battery tender plug that you have installed on your battery ahead of time.
