For any dirt bikers this chain lasted atleast twice as long as as a DID. IMO these chains are great! I would recommend these chains for anyone with a dual sport.
How are they different from other o-ring chaines?

I got fed up using my dad's tools for working on my bike. Not only are they in his shed far from the garage, lots of them are rusty or incomplete. So it was time to get my own. The 215 set, the bit set and a torque wrench. Since most stuff on the bike uses allenheads, these will help out nicely. I can now FINALLY torque to spec too! All Mannesmann, Zermann kvalitie, yes!

I had a quick look on Google, nothing I could find really.

Here's the companies email, you could ask there

info@Br-mannesmann.de

I bought my stuff from a Dutch online retailer, they say they ship internationally too, but my package was very heavy, shipping would be high I expect.

THIS link will show you all Mannesmann products available from that store.

hi djpaulie .... to answer your question: "Hopefully these are not available in the US."

Sorry maybe I´m mistaken but there seems to be a big difference between "Mannesmann" the former german tube industry and the "Gebrüder Mannesmann" (which is german for "Mannesmann Brothers") and who seem to be the "makers" of theses tools.

After what I found in the net "gebrueder mannesmann" seem to be a company which only imports tools from China ... ans sellt hem in DIY-stores ...
They put the german name on it to let it sound like it is an german maker of the tools ....afaik the tools are produced in asia ...
... but I personally don´t know anything about the quality of these tools (in the net you can´t find good critics on them ...) but there origin ist not of the (formerly) famous german quality brand ....

So do stick with Snap On or if it should be a german brand Hazet, Gedore, or if you want it cheap, german and from good quality .. try Proxxon ....

... I just found something on a german web forum specialized on tools
http://www.werkzeug-forum.de/index.a...ViewThread=920
to the readers who speak (read) german ... for the others the author describes that he got his hands on one of theses "Mannesmann" toolkits. He tried to get the screwdriver out of his bracket. While doing this the screwdriver got bent .....

I alo found a statement in that forum that if you want a good quality with a reasonable price and are only "private mechanics" try proxxon ....

Jeez thanks Michael

I had to remove the fuel tank today, used the Mannesmann set. The first time I tried, I have bent about 5 tools on it, all my dads old rusty tools. No complaints of the Mannesmann set sofar. Very handy to work with, everything fits together with a positive feel, and my screw driver definately didn't bent went I took it out!

www.samstagsales.com
They are in Tennessee. They know what they are doing. I prefer Stahlwille wrenches over Hazet, but there are a buttload of good quality tools available.
I don't wrench for a living anymore, so all of my Snap-on tools are going away eventually and will be replaced by German stuff.
Just has a better feel to it.
OH yeah.
The two most important best tools in the shop?
They are all important and I couldn't live without any of them.
But the welder and the lathe are what I would never ever sell.

Jesse Bags

My Jesse lugage system currently ranks number 1 after a nasty fall I had about a month ago when I hit the asphalt at 65mph crossing a bridge that had iced over. I contribute a significant amount of my "luck" to the Jesse bags protecting the bike and possibly preventing me from being pinned beneath the bike.
Number 2 is my BMW Savanah II suit that sacrificed itself to keep me completely unharmed.

This is my first accident after 26 years of riding.

I'm gonna have to go with the most recent toy I bought. I've had my VholdR helmet cam for a couple months now and love it! I've shot some great footage and editing them into some sweet videos. Check it out:

Great gear for the price.

Cool2 Jesse Safari 115

Without a doubt, my Jesse Safari 115's. Since my only source of transportation is my '07 R12GS, I needed some big 'ole bags to hold a lot of crap. Most important is my helmet. Especially when it rains. These things are huge, but I've been able to lane split in Cali without a problem and have yet to bottom out in the twisties. Then again, I'm kind of a pussy when it comes to laying her down!
