Do you conceal carry... Tire plugs?

Yeah that was a click bait title... I'm Canadian, not lawful to conceal carry...

Do you guys carry tire plugs? I used to keep them on hand when I rode the ATV. Is there anything special about an ADV plug kit? I'm thinking the typical black glued-up cord you push through with a T-handle. Then have a 12V mini compressor for the inflation. I want to add this to my kit bag. Any thoughts on this, any tips?

Here's a pic from last weeks trip into Harrison Lake BC, no problem keeping up with those full size ADV bikes!

While there are literally dozens of inflators choose from, I settled on this one and carry it all the time (along with a couple of repair kits, including Nealey and Slime):

It’s worked well for me just topping off the pressure; haven’t tried it yet on a full inflate, but I imagine it’s up to the task.

I tested one just like this before my trip to Alaska. It works very well but it's heavy and a bit bulky. It does come in handy around the house when I just want to top off my tires and I like that you can set the pressure to stop at. However when I pack for a log trip every ounce matters.
The problem with Co2 units is you need several and they take up as much room as the small pump with a limited amount of air. Sometimes it can take a lot of air to find a hole.
Good point, Rick. I’m going to add my compact bike pump to the kit.
