    Where do you guys carry the rest of your stuff! There is enough there to fill a side case! I am a little handicapped as my wife rides with me so we need to stow enough gear for two people. I pull a Unigo on the long trips, but still very little for tools.

    I carry a tire plugger, compressor, credit card and a cell phone! I am not even sure I had the funny little tool to get the oil cap off the RT last trip.

    I have put on close to 200,000 miles in the last 15 years and never had a failure on the road, except for blown head gasket on my Harley that had 80,000 miles on it. I rode it to the next dealer and traded it off! I had to think if I even wanted to carry the plugger and compressor.

    What are these things ?
    The red and black items are a Promach Dual tool.
    The black piece is a coil puller and the red piece is a front axle tool.

    The other black item is a R1200RS mirror base.
    These break pretty easy when the bike falls over.
    My wife's RS was backed into in 2016 and the mirror broke off.
    I used JB Weld to glue it back together for the remainder of the trip.
    I decided to carry the repaired piece as a spare.

    The bag above have the following items in it plus several micro fiber rags and laundry soap.

    The tire repair kit is in my SW Motech Engage tank bag.

    GS-911 is in a saddle bag.

    Micro Start is in saddle bag or luggage rack soft bag.

    The torx wrenches in the blue pouch is under the seat.


    Here's a picture from last week.
    The seat bag is a little taller than my previous picture because my coffee mug is in it.

    Could You Provide A List?

    It has a large enough bit for the wheel lugs but I don't think the pivot head is strong enough for that much torque.

    Bondhus makes a similar set.

    Here's the Motion Pro Hex set.

    Could you use a photo editor and add text to show what each item is?

    I just bought a new replacement factory tool set for my R65 LS and I carry bead breakers and tire irons plus a 12 volt pump as it has tubes.
