I started out out with a ratchet, deep well and regular sockets (8-18mm) a set of combination wrenches in the same sizes and a set of T-handle hex drivers. I bought all of these at Sears. I then filled in with a 10" crescent wrench, some vise-grips and several screwdrivers. These tools will allow you to do about 90% of the basic maintenance tasks and beyond that, you just slowly fill in for the specific needs of your bike. As far as oil changes, I bought an oil filter wrench for my Ducati for around $10.

If you want to go all out, this website has one man's (a Ducati owner, but the suggestions should fit all bikes) version of a comprehensive tool set:

If you are looking for packable tools that will cover most needs, Cruz tools has some nice sets:
