What to carry for flat tire repair?

What do you use to deal with a flat (tubeless) tire? Do you carry a plug kit like the Pocket Tire Plugger? How about an air pump? does anyone trust tire sealers in a can?

Thanks,
Rob

is there a Rockster windscreen?

I like my naked Rockster but these days it's gettin' chilly in PA.

Is there a windscreen out there for my bike that looks good? And made for a Rockster, not a universal screen.
