    I’m about to embark on an 1800 mile ride on my 2008 Kingpin in couple days. This will be, by far, the longest ride I’ve taken this bike on. I’m wondering if anyone has some suggestions on tools that I might want to take. I’m not looking to take the entire garage, maybe a small set of box-end wrenches, set of Allen wrenches, and some electrical repair items. Any thoughts?

    For a Vic it’s all mostly tools you’ll need to help someone else but, fuses, needle nose vise grips, tire pressure gauge, tire repair kit with a small 12v compressor, flashlight, packets of hand wipes, socket and extension for removing the seat, small multimeter, zip ties, etc. I used to carry quite a bit of miscellaneous stuff in the bags but in all the years riding the only thing I’ve every used was the 1/4″ siphon hose. Biker guy sitting on the side of the road ran out of gas. I had just filled up and two plastic water bottles of fuel got him to the next station.

    Thanks, Andrew. I loaded her up with some tools yesterday in anticipation of the ride. I don’t want to carry too much as I have no intention of diving into the bike too deep in a parking lot or on the side of the road. Chances are, all will be just fine. Reading all of the successful road trip stories out there certainly instills confidence.
