The off road season is nearing and I'm going over my fanny pack tool kit. Here's what I carry, what about you?

Fanny pack:
8, 10, 12, 14 mm sockets
8 and 10 mm open end wrench
adustable wrench
needle nose vise grips
safety wire
zip ties
assorted 8 and 10mm bolts
Fredette racing box wrench that fits front and rear wheel nuts
plug and wrench
spare clutch lever
insurance card and ID
I would carry a master link and chain breaker tool, but this DID X-Ring chain broke my last one :)

Fender bag:
One tube for the front tire (lighter)
CO2 air with backup hand pump
patch kit
soapy water

What did I miss?

Used to carry a tow rope (used it one time to pull my bike, many times to pull others riders bikes) until I got the WR. Now I just stick a bottle of water behind the front number plate and ride.

I do maintainence before the ride, limp it home when necessary (rarely).

I did forget to mention the tow rope (for others mostly :)) and allen wrenches.

Rag is good idea.

The more prepared you are, the less likely to need the stuff. More often than not, its MY tools the other guys need use.

I'd say with this whole broken woodruff key thing, a tow rope is MANDATORY. :)
