They call them dog turds in NZ (must be a small dog ). I had to use 3 last year to plug a puncture which was more of a slit than a hole but they worked just fine. In the photo, you can just see the ends sticking out below my hand. This was just before I found that my existing turds had lost their stickiness after 3 or 4 years of being in my pack. Fortunately, there was a motor accessories place close by that had new ones for under $5. Must remember to occasionally replace them.

I use DynaPlug Pro kit and always carry 4 x CO2 canisters as well as extra plugs. The kit is small enough to fit under the seat of the 790. You just have to carry the CO2 canisters which I place in a backpack which I always have with me anyway. Dynaplugģ Online Store | Motorcycle & ATV Tire Repair Tools

I'm getting older and lazier. The insurance comes with 0km free recovery - i.e. they'll come even if you're not on the road. If I were anywhere close to home I'd have it trailered to my mate's tyre place. Regular customers get free repairs ;-)

Iíve used the stop & go mushroom plugs before, as long as the puncture is straight-ish and not at a strange angle not had an issue. You do need to make sure you give the hole a good rimming though

Fortunately itís never been too far from home, thereís an electric tyre pump in our car boot and missus is usually on standby for emergencies.

Touring/travelling depending on where it happens, probably a call to recovery services and a long wait

Observation is the greatest source of wisdom.
