    What does you tool set look like for the trail?
    When setting on on a ride one would normally pack a tool set beyond the factory included set. One would select a variety of tools that would allow him/her to work on most anything trail side. Seeing this is a HONDA I would reccommend the normal.
    8mm wrench and sockets
    10mm wrench and sockets
    12mm wrench and sockets
    14mm wrench and sockets
    17mm wrench and sockets
    19mm wrench and sockets
    ratchet, adjustable, screw driver set, hammer, punch, pliers, wire cutters, needle noses.

    What else do you recommend taking on the trail?

    When I go riding I usually carry a full tool set, But that is because I have the room. If I was on an ATV I would carry the above and maybe a few other items. I carry a standard set also of the normal ranges.
    My kit has saved me many of times on the trial.

    I was going through my tool box today and decide I would try a different style of picture taking - Stop Motion Video.
    Enjoy....
    Post a pic and details of what you have in your trail tool box! thanks.

    This is the tool box I take 4-wheeling with me.
    It has come in handy many of times, mostly for other riders I have come across on the trail. 
    It fits in the rear foot rest of my Pioneer. It is a tight fit but it fits with the rear seat folded down. 
    Makes for good use of that wasted storage space.

    Anything anyone else would add, I am getting tools together for my breakdown kit. Trying to cut down on what I am carrying, I just threw (way too many) tools together in 2 FAT 50 ammo cans for windrock.

    I bought a couple of rotopax storage containers I am going to mount this weekend. One is going to be filled with recovery gear(straps, blocks, winch extensions, winch remote) the other is going to be a break down kit.

    I actually have a polaris belt I found at the wash station leaving windrock. So I will probably carry that and sell it at a premium. Probably also stick another eBay special exhaust tip in there just incase mine breaks off again.

    I actually gave away half my "save a ride kit" to guys on Polaris, Kawasaki and Benche after I pulled the Benche out and helped him fix his tire.

    Going to keep a rachet strap in mine so I can reseat a tire if one comes off. I had one holding my cooler down and we used it to get the Benche tire back on the rim and seated.

    That and all the non-Honda accessories I have added. Already had the EBAY exhaust tip and spark screen fail(break off)

    In all seriousness we break parts and we tear stuff up. Usually much later than other brands even a Honda wears things out, they are machines and as well built as they are they still wear down.
