Help, need rear tire for 1190r in DC area

I trashed the stock conti trailattacks on a sharp rock while on the TET today. Tire plug isn't holding. Anyone in the DC area have a set of tires that I could buy to use to get back up to boston? The Ktm dealer in the area doesn't have anything in stock....

You could always tube it if the carcass is still smoothe on the inside. The offset valve shouldn't be a problem, others are doing it, and I have done it on a GSA withe the offset valve.

I was able to find a tube at a dealer. Works great!

Not sure what happened here, but I was running stock tire pressures. It looks like the tire just cracked and split. I plugged the area what first started to leak, which worked for around 100 miles, I then put a tube in it. Its also now warped, causing the bike to ride funny. Its cominbg out as soon as the dealer gets a replacement for it. I do like the tire otherwise. Its pretty good tire in most everything as long as you stay far away from mud. Sand is a bit tricky too, but not too bad if you relax and slow down a bit. For me, besides getting damaged, its a perfect fit. Lets hope the 2nd one holds up better.

I see other spots the carcass is cracking. Does it look like that as you rotate the tire to other spots?
I wouldn't ride it like that, and it may be a warranty issue for the tire Mfg?

You'd think they'd warranty it? I didn't even think these tires carried a warranty. It's cracked like that in 3 places. I've parked her until I get a new one installed.
