One advantage of cars over motorcycles is storage space. A driver can keep an entire tool chest in the trunk, if he wants. Of course, that’s missing the whole point of riding a motorcycle.

Still, “stuff happens,” so bike riders should be prepared. That’s where CruzTools comes in. Based in Seattle, CruzTOOLS sells hand tools and compact tool kits for motorcycles, ATVs, UTVs, snowmobiles and personal watercraft. The company’s products are designed by riders who know just how important quality and reliability is during roadside or trailside repairs.

The company’s newest kit is the RoadTech B2, which is designed for riders of 2019 and 2020 BMW motorcycles. The kit packages a wide variety of devices in a roll-up carrying pouch.

Reflecting the range of fasteners on the latest BMWs, the tool kit has six Torx keys, five metric hex keys, four combination wrenches (8, 10, 12 and 19 millimeters), an 8-inch adjustable end wrench, a compact ratchet with a two-inch extension and four sockets, and a 34-millimeter axle wrench with a four-stage hex axle adapter. Additionally, there is a six-in-one screwdriver, locking vice grips, duct tape, mechanics wire, and a pen-style air-pressure gauge. Last, but not least, the kit includes a tube of Loctite threadlocker.

Why include threadlocker? The company’s slogan says it all: “CruzTOOLS gives you everything you need, and nothing you don’t.”
