Found it! I asked my friend Tim Keel, who owns Keel Brothers Motorcycle Tires in Georgia, for his $.02 on finding a leak. (I'd have asked him before but he's just back in the shop from vacation today).
His recommendation for finding a leak was to spray the tire with Windex. Up on the service stand, spray, turn, spray, turn, spray, turn....bubbles!
It's not a big hole but it's at a tough angle going down the forward side of a tread block (as the tire rotates) just off the center line, so the plug is going to get hit with just about every rotation. No bubbles form around the plug. I'll check the air pressure later to see if it's holding.
Before I go any real distance from home, I'll change out that tire. It's given me more than 10,000 miles so I don't have much to complain about. Thanks for all the suggestions.
