I've been carrying a tire repair kit on my motorcycles for decades but I've never had a flat until yesterday. I was 30 miles from a town and way out of cell range. I was rolling again in about 20 minutes I have a few things to share: carry a kit and practice using it (on an old tire) at home. You will need good power for the compressor and the dashboard socket is not enough. I have a pigtail (in-line fused) attached to my battery. I used a cheep Slime pump. It worked fine but I would upgrade for a round the world trip. In my practice sessions at home I've had no luck the the Stop and Go mushroom plugs and no success with the Dyna plugs with the brass tip. Sticky strings work best. The problem is by the time you need to use them the little tube of rubber cement has dried up. I strongly advise the use of the Nealeytireperairkit.com . They are strings and work just like strings but they are impregnated with glue (no tube of glue needed) and they last for many years.
