Just get it plugged and put a proper mushroom plug in it when you get home :)

No worries, managed to get home after the mobile mechanic came out.
I was kind of stumped, if it was the car i would have changed tyre but motorbike and 130kms away from home it's like oh no now what.
The buy plugged it with the sticky rope plug. i am going to buy one and keep it on the bike for future.
Good lesson.

Still best to spend the money and have a proper mushroom plug put in on the inside of the tyre :)

This ^^^ 100% Don't keep riding around on the string plugs as they are only a temp fix, get a mushroom plug ;)
