    Greetings fellow Trophy lovers,  I am outfitting for a long ride.  Iíve been advised to take a tire repair kit.  Obviously I want to minimize size and weight.  Does anyone have any recommendations?  Thx

    I have both the Dynaplug and the stop & go on the bike. I prefer the stop & go and have used it on my car and bikes. Also  run tyres for 2000+ miles after repair without issue. I dont see too many push gauges lying in the road ready to push the plug into the tyre. Works for me.

    I also use the Stop and Go kit on each of my motorcycles, but also carry "strings" and insert tool as well after the one time I ran over a piece of steel that was too wide for the Stop and Go plug to repair.

    Now that I added the strings, I will probably never need them...  :002:

    I also carry a small air compressor to refill the tire after a short lived experiment with cartridges.  :155:

    I too carry a small compressor because of exactly this.  Why mess around with something that might not even get me to proper operating pressure?

    Pays to plug that compressor in occasionally to make sure it still operates too.

    I agree that it's a good idea to give them regular use.
    I actually use the compressor to keep my tires at the correct pressures.
