    Portable air pump and tire plugging kit

    Anyone have any suggestions on a portable air pump and tire pluging kit (for radial tires) that I can take with me?

    Plus one on the Cyclepump. You can get cheaper ones at the big box stores, but the Cyclepump is the best.

    I like the Dynaplug kit for plugging a leak.

    The fancy air pumps are nice, but pricey. You can also go down to your local WM or Target or auto parts outlet and get a plastic-cased 12v tire inflator, ditch the plastic case, and carry only the pump inside. This might cost $10.

    My $19 slime pump works great, I have used it to help others, inflate new tires after changing them in a parking lot, fix 2 flats on the road. Works great, and is very compact.

    That's a good deal. If it had been on the market when I wanted one, at that price I would have bought it.

    My final answer

    Thanks for all the great advise.
    I ended up ordering a AirMan Tour compressor (based on webBike World review) and a Dyna Plug kit from Amazon.com with free shipping. I hope I never need to find out if they work, but if I do, they work well. And yes, I will test the compressor and read the instructions from the DynaPlugger kit.
