Real wheel nut size/removal

I have my Goldwing laid on its' side with 4 of the 5 rear wheel nuts removed but I can't get the last one off. The 3/4" six-point socket is trying to round-off the nut.

19 mm is 0.748 inches, or 3/4".. I've tried both 6 point and 12 point to no avail. I am about to the point of trying to use aluminum foil to get a tighter fit. Any ideas?

I ride too fast, too far, and too often to ride anything but a Goldwing rolling on a car tire pulling a Tailwind trailer because friends don't let friends vote Democrat.
