I am planning a coast-to-coast trip in July and need your advice on tools and parts. I am new to LT, and, of course, my 2006LT came without any tools at all (well, a screwdriver was included, very generous of BMW...). The bike is brand new, I will only have about 2500-3000 miles on it by the time i start coast to coast.
I. What is a necessary minimum of LT-specific tools i must have with me to deal with typical LT hickups? I don't want to carry full sets of wrenches, etc.
II. Since my bike is new, what in your experience are the first minor things to fail? What spare parts will it be wise to carry on a long trip for minor repairs?
