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.
Well if the hole is small enough, just patch it.
Many people don't accept this as long term solution, but I've done thousands of km on patched tires (NOT multi-patched and NOT patched where they shouldn't).
