Tools to carry while touring

Hey everyone,
I'm getting ready for my first touring trip on my bike, going to ride skyline drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway in June, solo.
I don't have a tool kit to carry with me so I'm open to suggestions on what tools to carry along with me on the trip. I am pretty mechanically handy if that matters.
Thanks in advance!

Zip ties, duct tape, small roll of baling wire, pliers, screwdrivers, adjustable wrench, allen/torx wrenches, tire repair kit, maybe a small 12v compressor, basic stuff like that.....

Your H.O.G. Membership Card! Gets you free towing to the nearest Harley Davidson dealer ........... and your bike should be under factory warranty for 2 years, so right now ALL of them on the road should still be under warranty

I hate autocorrect. I always end up posting some thong I didn't Nintendo.
