ouch that sucks only 300 miles, i dont know of any shops that will fix them. from what i understand most of them wont do it for insurance reasons.

i felt dumb when i bought the bike new and rolled road hazard insurance for the tires in with the loan. but then when i picked up that nail and didnt have to pay a penny for the tire or for labor i was glad i did

Plug it. As long as you aren't going to track it out, you will be ok. You will get mixed responses on a "fixed" tyre, but if done right, and you take it easy, really shouldn't be a problem.

PM Caligonetx, he can help you out.
