I have patched tubes a number of times on the side of the road, or in the woods. Often using a screwdriver for a tire tool.One big headache I had was that the patches were old, and the adhesive on them was hardened. When I had that problem, the tube of cement was good, still fresh and sealed in metal. But the heat had damaged the patches over the many years and they were bad. So refresh the supplies occasionally.
I have no doubt the first sentence in the above quote is accurate, however I am inclined to speculate that the road side patch job was on a wire wheel without the additional bead lock mechanism that modern tubeless wheels have. These modern rims are a real bear to break the bead on even with a really good set of bead breakers let alone spooning the tire on and off. The old tube type wire wheels don't have the little bump to capture and lock the bead.
I straighten up and ride home slow. Oh yea, avoid potholes as well...
This...And if you're a thin guy on a 400 pound bike you can usually ride a reasonable distance...
I've never had a patched tube hold - I don't think they can.
I use Ride-on in my V7III, and though I haven't had a flat, it absolutely does a fantastic job of balancing. I'm putting it in my tube tires on next bike too. Make sure you remember to use the heavy dosage for tubes and for balancing. I think it's like 20% more than the chart shows.
My Ride-on order is in the mail with enough to heavy dose both tubes. Will also get spare tubes to go with my decent tire irons, mini compressor, talc and zip ties. If it turns out to be an issue I'll see about sealing the wheels or look for a 2021 wheel set.

I am reading this thread with interest, as I realize that I wouldn't have a clue as to how to get either wheel off of this bike, let alone remove a tire from the wheel. Come to think of it, I don't even know how I would go about trying to support the motorcycle so that I could even ATTEMPT to remove a wheel. I have much to learn.One question: Are tubeLESS tires generally preferable to tires which require inner tubes? If so, why is that?
