Cry HELP! Chattanoga...Need tire

Last night on I40 west of Knoxville I hit something and put a hole in my tire at 80 mph plus. Kept my bike and was able to call some kinfolk to haul my bike to Chattanooga. The hole is big enough I could stick my pinky finger in it. I put 2 plugs in it to get it to hold air long enough to load it. I was headed to New Hampshire to see my daughter and only have 9 days off. Does not appear to be any dealers open. I have R1200GSA and need a 150/70/17. Running Metzler Tourance but beggars cannot be choosers. Anybody have a tire or know of a stores within 100 miles that I can get a tire on Sunday or Monday? Any help would be apreciated.

I PM's Suppermotodd, he is in Chattanooga area and may have access to a tire. He knows a bunch of folks down that way too.

Thanks! I only get to see my daughter a couple of times a year and I need to get back on the road ASAP. My kinfolks just went to church but said they can run me around after that. I am gonna pull the wheel to have that done. I did not pack tire tools though so would need access to a place o change...I hate using screw drivers to take wheel off. I am watching the thread so will be waiting...

So far no luck. No answer at wheelers and their Website says closed Sunday. No answer at motocompound but left message.

Dogscout is bringing me a tire but he does not have any spoons. Any local inmates give me access to tire changing equipment around Chattanooga!

I'm in Greer, SC

I know I'm way far out of the way, but if all fails I have a HF tire changer and NoMar bar, plus a Marc Parnes balancer that you're welcome to use.

Thanks to Dogscout for bringing me the tire Was able to get it mounted so I will be saddled up to head on to New Hampshire. Thanks to all who responded and offered help. This is one of the greatest aspects of this site!!! Would have been waiting til Tuesday to find a dealer. Will return the favor to any who have trouble in central Texas
