Just killing time with YouTube videos like all you other shut-ins, I decided to go through FortNine's back catalog to see if there's anything good I may have missed. One called, "Special Tools Every Motorcyclist Should Own"  features something called a Motion Pro T-Wrench. These are similar to ones I've admired in many of those "Mechanic in sandals in a Delhi back alley" genre of video. I've got LOTS of tools, but not one of those.

Thing is, the video description's old U.S. link to the item at Revzilla has that particular wrench-and-sockets kit as out of stock. In fact, the kit seemed to be out of stock most everywhere, though the wrench is available here and there singly. No big whoop--I've got sockets. But then I stumbled across this eBay listing for a "MotoTool Pro T-Handle Motorcycle Socket Set Basic Fanny Fender Pack Enduro KTM" that was so compellingly written, I just had to give it a chance. It helped that at just $8.99 it's about half the price of the name brand kit, if you can find one, and comes with 5 sockets instead of just three (8, 10, 12, 13 & 14 mm).

Well, it just arrived in its handy see-through button-down grommet-hangable plastic pouch and looks pretty damned good quality-wise. So, I'll toss it into that $99 Craftsman 224-Piece Kit I got a few months back, and I'm sure they'll all get along just fine.

I bought a t handle socket bolt set from the $10 bin at the local hardware shop. Same as you, just because they were there. Suffice to say, Motion Pro costs a lot more for a good reason. But I get your point and they're serviceable enough.
