Forgot to add the swivel elbow socket was well. An with any luck your multi too has a file on it (for cleaning corroded connections)

Hide a spare key on your bike as well.

Thankfully I have never broke down, and hope to always remain that way. Better prepared then sorry though.

I have loaned out my Save ur Ride cable to someone in need and spent a few hours helping friends help another rider install a new drive belt though.

have a vitamin bottle with bolts and nuts in it along with some electrical terminals and take 3 ft of electrical wire wrap in around a screw driver so it coils and put in the jar.

If your going to bump start your bike use 2nd gear and disconnect clutch wire and use a wire to jump the two connector.

Do Visions have cable clutches or hydraulic clutches? Such that a Sav-Ur-Ride is needed?

Do you fit your tool kits below the trunk liner in the attachment bolt access area?

And I thought I was a Boy Scout in preparedness.

Vision 8 balls have a cable clutch. Other Visions have a hydraulic clutch.

I put my tool kit in the clutch side saddle bag and the first aid kit under the panel in the trunk where the trunk bolts are accessed.

I really like this idea, plus I'd add a small flask of burbon so I have something to do while I watch Sparly fix my clutch cable - I don't think I could get the tools away from him...

I used to carry jumper cables for my "eventually" starting Honda CX500.

I search for motorcycle dealerships/shops before going on a trip and include that information on my smart phone notes page. Other than that I carry a tire gauge, flashlight, and Leatherman wave.

Victory's riderx app will tell you dealers food and gas. No need for notes.

Now that the Black hills had 2 ft of snow over the weekend maybe a fold up shovel 5-09-15

My bike always has the stock toolkit, CruzTools metric tool kit, kickstand pad, Rok straps, cargo net, two rags, extra spark plugs, and hand air pump in it. The CruzTools was a gift. You can easily make your own with a trip to Harbor Freight. Get their tool roll bag and the tools you think you need.

I didn't have the CruzTools at Osceola last year because I took it out of the bike to change out some tools to ones more common for Vics. After that experience I have added a 13mm wrench to it.

Then for longer rides/trips I will throw in a small insulated lunch bag filled with water bottles, my leatherman, my GPS and power cables (in case of a wrong turn and getting lost, find my way back home), a jump starter battery, can of slime, and my Frogg Toggs.

After seeing a couple of bikes with the JTD lowers I am seriously thinking about getting them next year with the storage add-on. I would put all that stuff in that instead of in the saddlebags. Otherwise once I get my speaker lids on I will be putting velcro straps in the lids to hold the air pump, straps, rags, and CruzTools bag.

http://www.cruztools.com/products/kitsmetric.html

I have the RoadTech M3. They use to have only 3 options, they have grown!
Looking over the site I like the one T-handle set they have.

The only thing I don't like about the CruzTools set is the ratchet. It's tiny. They didn't include something that could be used as a handle extender. It's hard to get good leverage with it being so tiny. I will probably replace it with a full sized ratchet. How many socket and wrench sets do you have? I have been cannibalizing parts from extra sets I have for this kit.

*IF* I get the JTD lowers thus have more storage space what I would really want to strap up inside my saddlebag lids is a breaker bar. Also a socket rail with some extra sizes and some ball end hex sockets.
