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.

G'day,

Vinish

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.

Lots of great suggestions but Surprisingly enough no one listed Pliers. I also wrap some duct tape around a screwdriver because I never go anywhere without duct tape. I prefer the Gorrilla Brand because it sticks to absolutely anything.

My list is biased cuz I have lots of room for that stuff, plus it came with a tool kit. But even just a rag for wiping your hands off after an incident. I also carry fix a flat in a can and a tire plug kit.

guess you carry the 27mm socket for the place that will put on a new tire.
I know you tell the girlfriend your a animal. But know 3/8's ratchet is going to brake the axle nut loose. So what do you have for the front axle Mags

He might stick the vise grips on the end of the 3/8 ratchet

Unless I missed it, no one mentioned AAA Plus or some other MC towing plan.
I carry most the tools needed for a roadside emergency and in the 64 years I have been riding, the only time they came out was help others. Guess I'm just one lucky old SOB.
