    Does anyone have any suggestions on one tire repair kit for distance riding (20% offroad). I've been lucky so far but that'll change I'm sure. Running Tourances currently.

    Thanks

    For tubeless I carry the Stop N Go kit and Sparrow Air Compressor - I've used them several times. I also have the BMW plug kit with 3 cartridges that come with my bike - I used it once and it worked fine also.... I think Rider Warehouse carries both these items, but they're not hard to find.

    May be confused but I think the Tourances on 1150's are tubeless. If I'm wrong, it won't be the first time (today).

    If you do search you'll find threads where Stop N Go plugs are cut in half after about 50 miles when used on bikes with steel belted tires. For this reason I carry both Stop n Go kit and the OEM plugs.

    For tubless tires I carry regular cage tire plugs and a source of air (co2, bicycle pump, electric pump or whatever is handy). For tube tires I care a spare tube:deal
