tool kits

When I were a lad it was a length of baler twine, a bit of wire, an old plug and a mole wrench.
In the Harley crowd it was a credit card and mobile phone.
Nowadays I carry a Swiss army multi tool, an adjustable spanner, wire, electrical tape, bulbs and a new plug.
What about you. Does your bike never go wrong or do you cart a spare magneto round with you?

I'm a belt and braces type of man.

I go through a lot of castor wheels though.  *sad2*

 Ha, I thought all you would need is a cordless drill and a polishing mop MF  *smile*. Now we know why they charge for a trolly at the supermarket, MF's got their castors.
Cheers.
