You mean for sort of a low-budget AAA? I can't imagine needing most of that stuff for the bike...

The Vulcan 750 does not need a jack. It has one of the most wonderful things ever invented for a motorcycle. It is called a centerstand. I carry a small Slime compressor (with the cigarette lighter plug replaced with battery clips), and a tubeless tire repair kit in one saddlebag, with lots of room left over. I also carry a small LED flashlight (the only LEDs on my bike), and small basic multimeter. I carry a complete set of high quality tools in a leather bag attached to the front forks. I also carry a few survival items, but you don't need a rolling garage, it's not like you are going to rebuild the engine beside the road. Save the space for something you really need. Jerry.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
