    search "Cruztools bmw Roadtech tool kit"

    also, Pit Posse dot com has good tool kits, though not BMW specific.

    I would agree on the custom tool roll if you have the inclination as it can be tailored to your spec and needs. If you need a starting point the Cruz tools are very good and can be supplemented.

    wow thats some extensive stuff. Im thinking as long as i can change a flat I'm good and so I'm thinking any of the commercially available kits would do the trick. Cruz tools seems cheap and at the other end the bmw dakar toolkit . thanks for all your tips guys.

    Rallye Pro 3 is the best IMHO ... the blue/red looks cool with the HP2 as well.

    (The KTM one looks a bit safe my bru :rofl)

    I use the hp2 fanny pack that came with the bike. It goes right where the charcoal canister went. The waist belt clips right around the fender. Works great and matches the bike. Richard

    The more I look at the HP2, the more I hope that one day I'll be able to join "the club" and park one next to my 2012 GSA ... That's when patience and hope comes to mind ... but hope is what keeps us going right ? ...

    I cover the waterfront in Norfolk Virginia.

    This is a great list, thanks. This just about covers everything.. I carry a couple 4"X6" squares cut from milk jugs for rim protectors and 2'x2' square scrap of light wt tarp as a work bench. I will be sorting my tool bag using your list!

    Do not forget a spare plastic 'wallet key" = mine is taped with duct tape permanently under one of the side covers. :norton

    On the topic of tools and spares, here's cute way to carry spare tubes.

    Front tube

    Rear tube

    Note my bike has a Turntech LFP battery that's smaller than OEM and left a nice void in the battery cradle area, just big enough for a tube. I just stuffed the tube in there and it hasn't moved an inch.

    It all passed a good field test last week in Baja... ;)
