I used to be the tire changer at the shop I was working at. I've done soo many 50 tires that I happily take my wheels to shops and let them do it for me now a days.

I HATE changing those tires/tubes with a passion.

Ok awesome. And yup i have had my drunken experience and got on a main street racing around and cop saw me so i went to a side street dragging the peg. Then i hid in an open field, he didn't see me turn so he went straight lol


One question, why does it dump so much fuel out of the excess hose.
