    I take it you’re pointing out your ingenious storage system and not what tools look like?
    Good idea if it’s the former, I know if it’s the latter and if there’s a 3rd option, no I’m not!

    Now you’ve explained that it then throws a new light on it.

    You have to be like Ogri. Tooth brush, and yer money. Middle seventies going to the Bol Dor, South of France, for the bike 24 hours, bare minimum. No spares or even a puncture repair kit. (76 Z900) Ahh, the folly of yoof, and a pocket full of money, drugs, cheap Vin Rouge, and loose French girls.
    Happier times for sure. Now they give you a medal for riding the Iron Butt.
    Liverpool to the South of France in three days, and a backside like a plank.

    Clever! But wouldn't a small adjustable wrench (spanner?) by a little more compact?

    Did that run in 82' on an XJ 650, 2 up from Bolton to St Tropez in 3 days.

    The difference with the " Iron Butt " is that its the 1000 miles in 24 hours not 3 days, so there is a substantial difference and is more substantially about planning.

    Adjustable spanners are the work of Satan! :imp:
    They only ever kinda fit. Never actually fit! :eek:

    True, but in those days, we just did things on the spur of the moment, green card insurance, crappy ferries, the ring road around Paris, "priority on the right". Planning ?, nope, we literally decided two days before the race. but 1000 miles in 24 hours ?, My memory might be old, but I seem to think its about 1600 odd km's, one way. Twice in three days. Going to WH Smith and ripping all the Ricard coupons out of the bike magazines for a "free" sample.
    Riding up to the Lake District for the simple reason the pubs closed an hour later than Liverpool, Waiting in dodgy car-parks waiting to score half an ounce of Moroccan resin.Simpler times for sure.

    1000 miles is 1609.34 Kilometers.

    And in your first post you said 3 days to get there, not there and back, but I agree times were different then and visting the lake district most weekends was par for the course on the old CD 175.

    A CD 175 ?, you are braver than me. Sorry, I forgot to say we left on a Friday and returned on the Sunday. Great days and even greater friends.
    The only trip we regretted was not going to the Arctic Circle to see the Northern Lights, it was something we all wanted to do, but sadly we couldn't get our leave right. Life got in the way of that one I'm sorry to say.

    Clever idea. I'm spoiled since I have a sidecar with a trunk, and I carry a complete tool kit. If you have any extra space, I agree that a tire repair kit is a good idea. My personal 'must have' items include Excedrin (aspirin for when the headache hits during repairs), electric tape, zip ties, and a small can of WD40. :) Seriously, you do have room to wrap some electric tape around a wrench handle and throw in some zip ties. Keep the good ideas coming.
