Slime or similar in tube type tires?

Ok I've read both sides of the argument.

For use in a dirt bike, would slime (or similar) take care of small leaks like from thorns?

Re: Slime or similar in tube type tires?

worked for me with hd tubes in big bend, when several others in our party had flats. Its not a failsafe for torn valves etc but I think its worth the effort. It made me feel warm and fuzzy.

I like Ride On, but they're both worth trying!
