Carole Nash breakdown cover, a pair of tits and a smile

"oh look i seem to be having a problem with my motorcycle and I'm just a girlie, I couldn't possibly put that bolt back in, I might break a nail"

Of course I'd never *actually* do it...

I do actually normally have a leatherman style tool... comes in rather handy when you discover your bar end is making a bid for freedom once again!!!

I can fix most things myself now, but the main problem is that without a full set of allan keys and much time and effort you can't get too anything as it's a fully faired bike....

I carry a Leatherman, a 6" adjustable and an L shaped widget with a 1/4" hex socket in each end that takes screwdrive bits and has an adaptor to take 1/4" drive sockets. There are 8,10,12,13,14 mm sockets to go with the widget plus a 5 and 6 mm allen bit, plus a plug wrench. I also carry a few fuses, a roll of 'leccy tape, a short length of wire and a few nuts and bolts. All the above lives in my jacket all the time. My tankbag has a set of lightwieght jump leads with small clips that I made up specifically for bike use. Mostly, if I cant fix it with that that gear, it isnt going to get fixed on the side of the road.

On a shakedown run after a rebuild I carry a few more bits around, bigger adjustable usually, and some tools specific to what ever has recently been modified.

BTW, on 400/500/550 four SOHC Hondas, you need the proper plug wrench because a normal one is damn near impossible to get into the plug recesses.
