Unfortunately, I do not have any extra tires in the garage right now, but not sure if a GS tire would fit. What size does the tire need to be?

Gullo Yamaha on Hwy 19 is the only shop in town that might have a tire. They deal more in side by sides and watercraft, but sometimes have a few bikes.

@jhansen rides an S10 I think...? He might have a lead, but I think he is in the Woodlands.

Tire size is 150/70-17
I thought it was in the link but not since a Tenere only forum. Tenere didn't upsize the rear tire in last update like the GS did.

Update:

Rider got family from DFW to come with trailer to get him and bike so help request is closed.

But he loses his Tenere man card for two tows and 2 day plus delay for only a flat tire. LOL

But I myself had 1 tow and got delayed 2 days in BFE CA desert waiting on RMATV to next day air me a tire. So laughing at myself also.

If you can't plug the tire and are not carrying a spare, or you can't find a tire locally, I don't know what else you can do other than get a tow :shrug:

Just sucks to waste trip time instead of being able to ride.

You need to stop riding before the flat destroys the tire. I didn't and it destroyed the sidewall (ignored warning signs; noise/vibration/wiggle, attributed to varying road surfaces as under construction, was at night, end of long day's ride = perfect storm).

Just do what I do. Momentarily panic and admit you are screwed. Three finger puncture in rear tire coming home alone from BB. 170 miles from home and 20 miles from the dive town of Menard who with the exception of the $189 tow, took advantage of me every time I opened my wallet :-) And, I never felt anything as I was flying along at 80. Pulled over and got out the pump and plugs only to find... your toast.

Just saw thisā€¦..šŸ˜•
Cycle Shack in Conroe had some in stock for my Tenere the last time I needed tires. At least it would have gotten them on the road
