During our last trip, I had misplaced an S&S wrench at one of the remote start and had a heck of a time getting the bike apart for the car ride back to our B&B.
Rich from Saranac Gear-to-Go was kind enough to offer to deliver a wrench despite being 30 miles out the way and on his own tour. Luckily I did manage using an adjustable plumbing wrench and a lot of duct tape. Normally I do carry a spare wrench on the bike, but did not this time because of the extra weight concern on the hills.
Anyway, my questions are:
1) Does anybody else normally carry an S&S wrench on their bike during tours?
2) Is there a lighter alternative to that wrench? I spend so much effort on keeping the bike light; I hate to load weight back on with heavy tools. And, that thing is heavy.
