What tools do you have with you when you're riding?

Seems like I managed to lose the little tool bag that came with my Boulevard, and figured that I might as well make up a new set of tools. So, I thought I'd see if I could get some ideas from you guys.

What do you suggest?

After the usual minimum assortment of wrenches (open-ended and allen), blade and phillips screwdrivers, and figuring the chances of wanting to make shock adjustments on the road (and either take the spanner along or leave it home - same with the plug socket- same with the el-cheapo pretend pliers manufacturers supply), I add a small multi-blade pocket knife, a small Vise-grips, three feet of electrical wire, a couple extra fuses, and a small roll of that silicone tape that bonds to itself.

You might want to give Cruz Tools a look. They have kits put together for metrics n such that work as a great replacement for your stock kit, plus you can add whatever you like. Cruz has had a lot of recommendations from Cycle World and other mags. Good luck.
