Alt+Tab works great for flipping between proper applications, but what if I want to see all the little icons by the clock and I don't have a mouse? Is there an alt+tab equivalent for the system tray icons?

Win+B will move focus to the System Tray icons. You can then use the arrow keys and enter to move between and select them.
