Well crap!

Was on my way home after getting my 600 mile service done. 3 miles from home this happened.

I've taken to always keeping my plug kit and foot pump in the side case. Hope I never need it.

Always trust your cape.

+1 here too- I have a stop-and-go kit and it fits with my stock toolkit under the seat. Used it once and it got me home just fine, though ultimately I had the tire repaired properly. Very nice bit of rescue kit to keep under the seat imho.

Always carry a hand pump, electric pump and bunches of plugs.

Picked up a huge Lag Screw a couple of weeks ago that took 4 plugs side-by-side to seal enough for me to drive it home. Lost no air pressure overnight when I checked it before changing the tire.

+1 Plugs! I use the CO2 because of the size but they have great little pumps now! Do picks some up and throw them in your tail bag!

I will I have a Givi Trekker 42 so I have plenty of space to stick a flat kit. I do also have roadside assistance so I was able to get a tow no problem.
