Not only did they do away with the tools in the 2012 wing, they also do not include the Aux cord in the Premium Audio model

Just another reason (among many) I have absolutely no desire to purchase a 2012! Hehe! The 2013 can't arrive soon enough . . . :bow:

It's not a big deal.

Mine looked like cheap stamped tools in a Naugahyde kit bag.

Do a search and get many suggestions for which tools to carry.
Fred's Videos shows a what he carries.

The first thing I do is sell the tool kits and recoup some gas monies. The tools are junk, and I cant use them anyhow.

If you think you need tools, buy a nice collection of quality tools and your better off.

Honda is also saving money on the 2013 and moving from those expensive motorcycle tire to the less expensive car tires.

I think it is time to go back to a Harley

Not only Honda, Have you any electronics lately? They give you a QUICK START book and if you want more detailed information you have to download and PRINT the owners/users manual.
Now I just bought a new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo and it came with 2 owners manuals

your dealer did not prep it right, should have cord and you have AUX USB/IPOD in the trunk as well.

Should have bought a Canadian Wing if you want the toolbag. On my 08 Wing the toolbag was the 1st thing I threw out...

On the 2013 handlebars will be optional. Then for the 2014 model they add wheels to the list of options;)
I don't think that's gonna fly. To many will ask for their deposit back.:thumbup:
