    Excellent tools people. I think i have more than a few favourites but the top two are probably:

    Wiha pozi screwdriver bit (coupled with my AEG li-ion driver)... never buy another pozi again.

    Makita SDS Drill... Never curse another concrete wall again as it just drills into anything with a few slogs (coupled with some Dewalt SDS bits)...

    Will try n post pics later!

    I was working on my first gen and damn clamp ends scratched my hand badly, so I have bought a few hose guard sleeves.

    I have ordered them in blue and will look cool too !

    Chaps I have bought a few Beta tools (pronounced as bettaa) recently all bike tools and I am seriously impressed with the quality and durability and most importantly these tools are so hard they don't chaff the ends with heavy use.

    A lot of top flight MotoGP , WSBK, and BSB teams use beta tools as their preferred tools suppliers, so they are well established as a quality tool maker.

    So I am interested in a tool set of my first gen as a battle box when I do long distance and come in hand for the bike also. I can across this set Beta Tools Easy Socket Set 1/4" & 1/2" Square Drive 93 piece Kit in Case 903A/C9 - Motorsport-Tools.com

    Not a bad price what do you guys think?

    That really is a decent price for a quality set - Lifetime warrantee too. If the ones you've tried meet the CJ standard, this set is worth a punt. As you say,
    I think you should go for it.

    Order placed I will post pictures when it arrives. If anyone really interested in quality tools give Beta a try.
    Have a look at the lengths they go to make a trusty spanner.
