Bikers are a pretty small population. Between the do-it-yourselfers, people buying take-offs and so on and so forth, the businesses that stock bike tires more than likely hold on to their stock for some time... Gotta make that buck and move that stock when ya can, k'yao meeeeeean? (its gibberish, learned it from billy madison...)
Give it a few years... streetfightin'll catch on...

we charge $70 for 2 tires, But you gotta think we gotta make a living some how. If they are only charging half an our you gotta think what we make.

cool toy to have.. I usually change my own tires and it can be a pain without that to make the process easier.
"I get a total charge out of inspiring others to follow their dreams and not to fear change. Embrace it. Realize that money isn't the end-all, be-all. What is important, what really has value, is Time. As motorcyclists, we all face increased risks on the road, and on the track. Do something with your time; don't have a bag full of regrets when the train comes to a stop. "
