Eek Rim Leak thru spokes R1150GS

Woody thanks for the offer to send it in but not an option for me from regional Australia. Considering fixing thr issue in the short term by fitting a tube, but have received some feedback that the 2000 model GS1150 (non adventurer) is not set up to take a tube, rim design not suitable and would be extremely unsafe to ride.

What do you think about fitting a tube to this rim, Do you agree? and if there is what ? is the difference between adventurer rim and a standard 1150GS
