Question slime for motorcycle tires?

So was thinking about carrying some for emergency use but wondered what people thought of it?

Any personal experience?

Problems or concerns I should be aware of?

How much of a mess will it be for the person who actually fixes the flat properly when I get it to a shop?

It will work for lower speed applications but should not be used if you are gonna go fast.
The down side is that it makes an awful mess inside the rim and tire changers will charge more.
Plus it is wet so it can and probably will start corrosion inside the wheel.

i would think it would throw the tire out of balance at high speeds

its crappy for balance, and even if you do not get charged more you will at least be cussed out to your face at the shop. i would only do it on UTV or ATV tires...and only for lower speed ones, not gonna do it on rzr's or anything that would race, but more for utility and hunting use.

on a funny un-bike story... I recently got a nail in my front car tire. Always carry slime-like-sealer/inflator in my trunk so I put that in there. Appearantly it didn't seal the whole because it came out of the whole while I was driving and covered the ENTIRE side of my car from front to back. Wheel well was like a neon green. Bullsh!t. And the stuff costs like 10$ at the wallfart. 2$ plug kit from a gas station fixed me up good and is still on there, even at speeds in excess of a good idea. Yea for expensive that doesn't work,and haineken. One of those was sarcasm.

edit- F*CK I misspelled whole. It's supposed to be whole. And misspelled might actually be with one 's'. And I don't know if the period goes inside the ' or on the outside.

edit again- still messed up it's supposed to be hole. not whole. twice.

oh yeah I forgot to mention, the stuff throws my car tire out of balance. Doesn't bother me because I hate my car. The only reason I don't set that thing on fire is because I don't have full coverage. But if it threw my tire out of balance, and my vehicle only had two of them total. I could see if being a problem.
