thanks for the input guys. we were able to find a shop a few miles from where we were overnighting. i just went with a battlewing and they were able to overnight it. all seems good on the tech side, 'cept he forgot to pump the rear brake up, lol, and of course the psi is low.
the nail was in the tread and when we pulled it out a bit a gurgle came along with it and we just stuck it back in right away. i have ride-on installed so i'm thinking it did the trick and kept the leak sealed. i rode it to supper that night and around this morning while we waited for the call from the shop when new tire arrived. the stock trailwing has 7k on it and was pretty worn down the center (texas roads), so hubby opted for new rear tire which i was more comfortable with and the dealer was able to come through, otherwise i would have ridden it home as is.
