Brooks Leather Tool Roll

When unforeseen complications strike while on a long motorbike trip, you won't have your entire MATCO box with you.  The kit under your pillion, or pannier is usually made from pressed steel, and will round off any fastener.  In comes the Brooks Tool Roll, made of European vegetable tanned leather. Made of substantial leather, the Tool Roll contains 3 tyre levers with spoke locating groove, spanners (8/9, 10/11, 12/13, 15), interchangeable phillips and flat nosed screwdriver, allen wrenches (sizes 8/6, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 2.5) and spoke wrenches (dual size: 3.3 and 3.4 mm). Don't get me wrong, the tool kit won't enable you to replace the clutches on your 2010 Bonneville in the middle of Chile, but you could tighten up any loose bits along the journey.  Available in 3 colors for $170
