So another question ... has anyone even attempted to pump up a motorcycle tire with a bike pump like the one in the picture ? Should I even attempt it or just go for a mini compressor ?

Tire repair and compressor. Other than a credit card, that's all you need.

I have Good Sams towing because it is the most motorcycle friendly and allows unlimited tow mileage to a qualified repair facility.

If you should need a specific tool along the way, there is always some hardware store or Walmart.

Leave the weight at home.

Based on decades of experience, and seeing so many fight the purchase of a compressor only to learn the hard way, get a good compressor and it will last many years.

Flat Repair Kit - Very easy roadside repair set-up.

Roger that ... So good compressor, flat tire repair kit , credit and cash is your recommendation ...

I am still fighting that urge to carry some stuff with me ... Will see what I pair it down to ... I'm the guy that has a ham radio go-bag with everything to talk to the moon and back packed into a small hair dryer pouch

I've not yet gotten to the camera equipment ... lots to sort out

Good Sams works in the USA from what I read on their site ... but I'll have to find something in Canada with the same bang for the buck ... In Canada their service seems to be limited to $250-1000 depending on what plan you got ... and I know I am going to be needing it if I don't have it ...

Any thoughts on the Dynaplug system for tire repair ? They seem to have a pretty decent system and a pretty decent compressor from what i can tell ... Anyone used Dynaplug ?

Dynaplug is fine for tiny holes. Safety Seal for all others.

I carry a Dynaplug kit, and luckily haven't had to use it yet. As for tools, while I agree on packing light like RSL, I do still prefer to bring a few small items on longer trips:

3,4,5mm allen keys
Tool for tightening chain
14mm short open end wrench
