Tool kits required for RTW Riders

Anyone taking a Japanese Bike







If your taking a Harley Davidson






What you will need if your taking a Ducati










Don't set off on a BMW with any less than this.

Dazzer, there's more than a few people on the HUBB without a sense of humour or who wouldn't recognise a joke if it slapped them in the face: Look at some of the replies to http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...ep-faith-74913

Seems a bit rash to sell off your BMW just because of a puncture ...

Maybe the word Puncture now means Final drive failure.

Who's Marco? Is he a comedian/ sense of humour guru/ BMW mechanic in post #1? Will he twiddle your Ring Antenna for you?

Toolkit

I think a little bit of jealousy is starting to creep in here, try doing a set on touratech boxes, just fitted some, sent me the wrong boxes, wrong rails the locks have failed on 2 of them and the locking spring has just fell out and I've not even left the house

But tomorrow is another day.

Jealous of what exactly? Of buying substandard, overpriced bling from an outfit who work from the same customer-service manual as Siberian hoteliers and not knowing how to fit it? Of thinking you're something special just because you're (allegedly) riding a m/c all the way to Spain to visit Marco?

Anyway, you never actually answered the previous question. Please advise who the hell Marco is? Van Basten? Polo? The bloke with the tool chest? Does he have a sense of humour?

There seem to be one or two who think they're the sole arbiter of what's funny.
