I think that if you have a serious enough problem while on the road that the rear wheel has to be removed, you probably don't have everything with you that it will take to get back on the road. A call to road service is probably needed anyway and they should have access to what it takes. If you only have to rope plug the tire you don't have to remove it. I would use the Bushtec that you have and find a buddy with a welder. I had a rack built that fits the Nelson-Rigg bag that Pak-it Rak uses, and for about $120.00 have it set for travel.
