What is the most important tool any motorcycle rider can carry with them?
We’ll cheat and say a multi-tool such as a Victorinox Swiss Army knife.
Apart from having a number of useful functions, the tool is small and conveniently folds up into a shape that should not cause any injury to you in a crash, even if you carry it in your jacket pocket.
We have featured Victorinox products before as they are made of quality material and are built to last.
One of their latest is the Cybertool M ($235) which has 32 functions in a medium pocket knife size. Victorinox took the traditional Officer’s knife functions and added tools like a bit wrench to match new standards in the electronics industry.
It’s only 91mm long and weighs just 153g, but packs a hefty number of tools and features, including Combi-pliers.
So there shouldn’t be too many roadside maintenance jobs you can’t perform with this tool.
You can even take notes with the pressurised ballpoint pen!
