So, today I filled a spray bottle with 20% soap and 80% water. Checked the stem, tire/wheel area on both sides, then the main tire area. Here is a photo of the trouble spot:
So, off to the dealer on Tuesday for a new tire. I could plug it, and on a car I would, but not on the bike.
I am a Platinum level member of BMW MOA. That is the highest level - comes with tire insurance. You can claim twice a year and this will be number two since I renewed last July.
There is no hassle when making a claim, or at least there was not on my first claim. If there is a problem, I guess I will post about it here.
