I looked on ebay for a tool roll an empty one a fair few canvas ones cheap enough you can make up your own tool roll For years I used the canvas tool roll as supplied by Mercedes for their cars but it got holes and wore out.
Very useful tools tho' like a short 22mm/17mm spanner good quality it is worth asking at a scrapyard As said previously I found open spanners with different ends real space saving .... good enough on the side of the road. Anything other than minor stuff gets the AA called out. Have to say other than punctures I have only had them out for:-
 
Collapsed rear wheel bearing on V11 Le Mans .... Caused by faulty spacer all sorted quickly
 
Failed Electronic ign on V1000 ....I put points back in
Head Gasket failure that blew opposite a stud and cut a groove in the cylinder !!!!
 
When I first got it 25 yrs ago the stator worked loose ...junking the whole alternator
 
But that it is over the yrs it is not bad , I have had cables go but easy side of the road fix the other one has been the gearchange lever on the back of the gearbox has popped off happened oooh 3-4 times over the years , easy to pop back on but annoying .... I tend to check it whenever I do oil changes.
