I am sure many, many others will chime in on this one. I alway have a tire plug kit with me. There are many small compressors that you can run of a standard cigarette plug. I also bring have electric tape, super glue, and vice grips. Can fix anything with those tools!!!
I have plugged rear tires twice on my V. Simply pulled out the offending particle, reemed it out and pushed the plug in 2/3 of the way and burned off the end. I used this twice and drove at highway speeds for up to two weeks while I was waiting for a new tire. With just two tires, it is best not to have a plug in one that can pull out. I understand there are not "steel belts" in a motorcycle tire like there are in a car tire. It is those belts that help keep the plugs in a car tire. I have had a plug pull out of a motorcycle tire in the past while I was driving.
I figured it out!! A good day is when you can't see through your visor or windshield b/c of the bug splatter!!!!
