I wouldn't like to immobilise my bike when the time comes to use the pump.

Mine's got a pressure gauge as well!

Sure, as long as you plug it directly into the battery. I use the Gerbing plug for mine, run off my fused and relayed fusebox, but you could use a Gerbing plug that goes directly to the battery.

The BMW plug limit is 5 amps, and the compressor is over 10, so it wont work off the BMW plug unless you have it direct to the battery or a fuse box.
