Number One Motorcycle Tool

WHAT IS THE #1 MOTORCYCLE TOOL?

Modern motorcycles are way more reliable than they used to be. In fact, you could ride for years with minimal use of tools on the road – except for this one.

OK, there’s definitely MORE than one tool you should always have stashed away somewhere on your motorbike.

WHAT TOOL SHOULD YOU ALWAYS HAVE WITH YOU ON YOUR MOTORBIKE?

But..IF…there were only ONE tool you could carry, for some crazy reason (such as your significant other wants you to go on a long trip and not come back for a while and he/she wants to keep all the tools EXCEPT ONE of your choosing), which tool would it be?

  1. Spark plug wrench?
  2. Tire repair kit?
  3. Bottle Opener?
  4. Utility knife with a 1001 gadgets?  (Hmmmmm, maybe, but doesn’t work with the point of this article).

I would suggest that if there were only ONE tool that you could bring on any motorcycle ride that it NOT be a bottle opener.

ALWAYS CARRY A TIRE PRESSURE GAUGE

So which tool would I suggest?  An AIR PRESSURE GAUGE.  Yep.  You know you need to check the air pressure on your tires more often than you do.  It’s just such an unnecessary risk to be riding around with improperly inflated tires.  Especially underinflated tires.  Underinflated tires decrease the usefulness of those two little rubber contact patches that keep your bike right side up.  Check your tire pressure every week.  Small amounts of air can leak out, even with good tires parked in your garage.  Check your tire pressure often. Keep an air pressure gauge on your bike at all times.
