    What do you think of this one...

    If you can park it, and not turn around to admire it before walking away, you bought the wrong one.

    All my bikes have an SAE plug and most also have at least one DIN socket. However, for the R1200RTW I wanted something substantial enough to be able to easily jump-start the bike if needed. For that I have the Micro-Start Harness Kit from Antigravity Batteries and their Micro-Start XP-1.

    The beauty of using this is that when connected directly to the bike's battery the Micro-Start Harness Kit provides me with the following:
    - Jump-start capability without removing the side cover (the wire is proper heavy gauge unlike most SAE cables)
    - Direct (by-pass the CanBus) power for items that draw more than the CanBus plug will handle like my Stop-n-Go pump
    - Includes a MICRO-START to SAE Reducer that allows for hooking up standard (SAE) type battery charger or anything that needs a power source

    I also have a Black Diamond Headlamp rather than a flashlight (up to 130 lumens). I've found that, for me, having both hands free and the light focusing where I'm looking is very helpful. I've even found occassions when working in the garage where this light is preferable to any of my workshop lights or flashlights. Plus it also has many additional uses. It recharges via USB, etc.
    The Black Diamond ReVolt is a powerful, versatile, rechargeable headlamp for climbing, hiking, camping or any other time you may find yourself out after dark. With 130 lumens of power, the ReVolt easily spots anchors while you rappel in the dark, proximity lighting gives you a large area of light for hiking down the trail and a dimming feature lets you choose just the right amount of light for the task at hand. A three-level power meter keeps you from ever being surprised by dead batteries, and the ReVolt can run on standard AAA batteries in addition to the included rechargeable batteries.

    - One TriplePower LED, two SinglePower white LEDs and two SinglePower red LEDs emit up to 130 lumens (max setting with alkaline batteries)
    - Red night-vision mode has proximity and strobe settings, and activates without cycling through the white mode
    - Sleek, low-profile design uses three Black Diamond AAA Rechargeable Batteries or standard alkaline or lithium batteries
    - Settings include full strength in proximity and distance modes, dimming, strobe, red night-vision and lock mode
    - Three-level power meter shows remaining battery life for three seconds after switching on headlamp
    - IPX4: Storm proof—Tested to withstand rain and sleet from any angle.

    I've been carrying full torx and allen sockets 1/4" drive and 3/4" drive sockets since my first year of riding.
    My photo of my tool kit shows that, granted it wasn't till I posted it till I realized how bad the photo was.
    I'm guessing that you mean 3/8" drive sockets, not 3/4"... 3/4" would be a heck of a load to lug around even on a RT!

    Yep, you got me. 3/8ths.

    Newbie question re-front and rear wheel removal

    Having just acquired an 09RT and never having owned a BMW before, I've found out I have to buy various torx and hex head drivers. Can someone please tell me the correct sizes required for front and rear wheel removal?
