Massachusetts to Tennessee in 3 days on a KLR

First, this trip begins on July 24th as my wife and I fly from Nashville to Boston to pick up a nicely farkled 2009 KLR650. Our youngest daughter is interning for the summer at Jacob's Pillow, a well known dance theater in Becket, MA (western Massachusetts).

We had planned to fly up and see her and I started watching the Boston Craig's List for a bike capable of making the trip home (1,200 miles). Soon a very nice 2009 KLR650 came up that was heavily farkled (I'll put a picture and list of the accessories in a future post. After a month or two of it not selling the owner agreed to a lower price and the deal was done. The owner's name is Bill and he's been a really great guy to work with. When he heard my wife was riding back he even offered to redrill the Pelican trunk so that there would be more room on the saddle.

Here's an item that I would like your assistance with. What tools should I carry for the ride back? The KLR has the standard tool kit on it. We'll be on the highways all the way back and, to be honest if not manly, if I have a flat I'll probably have someone else fix it since we have roadside assistance as well.

Thanks for your help. I'll add to this thread as we coninue with our planning and along the way as we make the trip back.
