So I'm taking a trip down to Kentucky in a few weeks to do some riding on a friend's property. What are some good basic tools to make up a "trail tool kit"? Basically, what do you take with you when you go riding away from home?

Do you mean what you take with you when riding or in your truck for when you come back from riding?

1/4", 3/8", 1/2" socket wrenches and 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 14mm, 17mm, 24mm, Screwdrivers, socket extensions, Channel locks. I would make sure you carry a seperate container for just fluids (brake fluid, coolant, oil, chain lube, filter cleaner, grip glue (crazy but I have had to use it twice). Thhe bike doesn't take a ton of tools to work on it but it does take multiple tools on the same nut and bolt. What I am getting at is don't take 1-12mm socket, you might need another 12mm to hold the bolt end or something. Take a good look at your bike and figure out what wrenches, sockets you would nee to take it apart and take them with you. I have a homedepot special rolling tool chest that is 30" long by 18" wide and 2' tall and it works perfect to take in the truck with the quad for a little weekend warrior riding.
