Who carries tools when they ride?

I've never left home without some sort of tools either in my car, or my bike. I have several small tool kits I've put together for various bikes, usually in small bags I keep in the luggage or under seat.

I have also made special repair kits that my wife or a buddy can grab and run, for example, if I get caught with a flat, or a dead battery. These have proven super helpful for when I call and tell say " just grab the small red tool bag and meet me at ( insert stranded location here) ".

Anyone else feel this compulsion?
Anyone else have cool/smart tool habits?

The reason I'm asking is since there's no bags yet for the r9t, it's going to force me to figure something out.... Can't ride without tools.

There is one other thing no one's mentioned yet, I always try to have my sky-hook packed and at-the-ready when I'm touring Australia & Tassie's vast outback. Coupled with my epirb, it guarantees me a pickup from any Gorge I might have dropped into. Mine is extra H/D, I can bring the bike along. Well, either the bike or my pillion.

It's available for civil applications now.
I just watched it as well. I can't believe they don't use it often now. Well I dont know for sure but it is a useful "tool" just not on a wide scale. transporting bikes is way easier now :D

In terms of tools to carry while riding.

A couple of small wrenches, tires patches, a couple zipties, and a tire pressure gauge is all I need.

What do you guys have?
