Looks like I'll need a new tyre and there probably isn't any in the country yet.
Exactly the same thing happened to me 2 years ago on my K16 on exactly the same road I was on yesterday. That turned out to be 2 inches of welding rod through the back tyre, not spotted the problem on the GS yet.
Bummer ! The demo bike at Southport Superbikes had a screw in the rear Tourance Next last Saturday, replaced this week. If you are stuck sourcing a tyre, you might try phoning them to see where they got theirs - speak to Steve on the parts/service desk.
