Flat tire Shinko E705

Got a flat tire today doing a dirt road ride with a friend on his 2012 versys. I must have hit a sharp rock. I have to say I'm impressed with the sidewall on the rear E705 tire. Except for the corners in the dirt causing the feeling like I was going to crash in a straight line I could not tell the tire was flat. I put a plug in the hole aired it up and had another go. I made it to the pavement after about 15 miles and then another 70 miles before the other guy pulled up and said it was flat again. I was going 60 and didn't know it was flat. The plug had given way and slipped out. Put another plug in and made it home another 45 miles.
