I didn't even know they made a 10mm x 2.0 pitch thread.

5mm x 0.8 / 6mm x 1.0 / 8mm x 1.25 / 10mm x 1.25 / 10mm x 1.5 / 12 mm x 1.25 / 12mm x 1.5 are my most commonly used Taps & Dies. And an 8 thread Metric Thread File for larger axles & shafts.

But my two Most Used Tools on bikes & atvs are my flat blade pocket screwdriver & my 4" long 1/4" drive ratchet, bar none!
This reminds me, I ought to have the Snap-On guy rebuild my 1/4 drive ratchet, again.

Everyone else here had great entries but I really have to be grateful for my trackside rear stand. It's definitely been one of my most used tools with my Pitbull front stand. It's usually the first step before I do anything else.

I use a tail stand as well. I find them very handy.

That T handle socket set looks handy. Been assembling a travel tool set and trying to be thorough without going terribly crazy.

Best tool? Besides this forum, my torque wrenchs. I have many ways of turning a fastener, but just 2 to get it tightened to spec. One for small inch pound fasteners and a gig un.

2nd fav is my 18v 3/8" impact. Seriously handy tool. Stripped most of my '89 4Runner with it.

My excursions on two wheels are not limited to motorcycles. I'm a rather avid cyclist these past 50ish years. I have been riding this, in one form or another, since 1974:

Campagnolo is a well-known brand in the cycling community and has been for almost 90 years. They also make wheels found on high-end Italian cars.

And this, for a mere $250;

I don't have one.
