I was just wondering how many people carry tire repair items for emergencies.

I just picked up a portable air compressor and a tire repair kit today just in case.

It's always a good idea to carry a plug kit with you...I carried one in every car we own and on my bikes...Air compressors are cheap when you need it you got it...Beats setting on the side of the road waiting for a tow truck......

Just think about it,,,,,,,,,,,,, out in the middle of nowhere with a flat, and all it takes to get somewhere, is a plug and air.

Dang right I keep a kit with me at all times.

Plug kit, built in compressor. Can of sealer. Then first chance to a tire shop (motorcycle). The two times I had it done the tire repair shops says not to use the sealer, that it does not work good with a plug - they just don't like cleaning it out.

Can't blame the shop for not wanting to clean the stuff out. It is very messy to clean up.

But if it gets me to the shop safely then it gives them a chance to make some money off of me for my misfortune. Even if they charged a little extra to clean the stuff up we'd still pay it to be safe.

I've got the standard tool kit, that comes with the GW. Added some wrenches to this. Air compressor, battery tender/charger. This is a work in progress though, always open to something new. The tires have been rhino'd, so I'm not sure if any of the 'slime' products are needed. With all this plastic, I'm thinking of some kind of glue....you never know.

I carry a plug kit and tools. The compressor I have is an adapter that fits right into the head where a plug goes.

If I'm on a trip, or just going to be near nowhere, and I remember, I toss in my co2 kit.

I haven't had a flat tire sincemy Honda 250Hawk. That has been weeks ago. I mean many, many weeks ago.

I carry a small compressor, and a plug kit. I have needed it several times now, and each time it saved me from a real mess. I've got a kit in each car too. Haven't needed it as often in the car, but I needed it once there, and it saved me real hassle there too.

In addition to all the above flat repair stuff, I carry a 1" wide 6 foot ratchet type tie down strap.. If you lose a bead you'll need something of this sort to compress the repaired tire to get the bead to seal.......
