Hey - in the UK, I got all of that, plus a little wire thingy to tie my crash hat under the seat, AND a fuse puller - I thought my dealers had stolen the contents, till I found out that that is all you get nowadays . I didn't even get a torchTandemCyclist said:My '05 here in America only had the reverseable screwdriver and 4 fuses.
Ah - now there the dealer did do you.Woolly said:I didn't even get a torch
Niall, you should know - if you ride with a puncture repair kit. you will never ever get a flat, likewise for any other 'special' tools. I must admit I was a bit suprised at the TOTAL lack of tools in the large (05 UK) tool roll, still, you can't beat a warranty (or credit card) and a mobile phone .Niall said:The puncture repair kit isn't part of the supplementary kit - its just (just?) tools - pliers, screw driver, couple of spanners, box spanner, wheel brace etc
Personally, I've got tyre sealant so I wouldn't use - haven't used a tyre reapir kit - not in the 11+ years of owning BMW's, and those are the only bikes I've owned that came with the repair kit.

Hi Simon,simoncharles said:Wooly, not EXACTLY true !
Had occasion to use mine twice, once in Morocco, once in Tunisia, where the BMW break down service is not exactly fast.
Hi Simon, we've finally got some dates - Portsmouth-Bilbao ferry on the 13th April, couple of days down through Spain, then Algeciras- Tangiers ferry. Ride down to Erfoud, then down to Merzouga to visit the desert dunes, back up to Tangiers, up through Spain (possibly in and out of Portugal), and ferry back to Portsmouth on the 26th, then a 'long ride back' to the poor impoverished North East of England - 4 bikes going, including my LT and a GW!! - would be fun to meet up with you...simoncharles said:Wooly,
Funnily enough I am going again this Easter, so I will be able to update you on any changes to below. This is my first time on an LT, but have been before with people who had one.
Hi Simon,simoncharles said:What colour the GW ?.
The route south I suggest you should take would be:
Bilbao, Burgos, around Madrid, Toledo well worth a days visit, Cordoba, cross country to Antequera, Ronda, San Roque, Algeciras. The last bit has some spectacular scenery and avoids the terrible coast road from Malaga to Algeciras.
What time does the ferry arrive in Bilbao ?.
