Stixx, After 2.5 yrs of lusting, debating, cogitating, you get the pic, I finally bought the bike.....a '12 MultiStrada! I sold a hell'eva nice bike to buy her, but she's a magical m/c!!!!! Did I mention the bike is magical? It's the closest m/c to an angel and to a devil...kind'a of a combination of both (thanks for that line 'Eagles')!
A buddy of mine built his own tire changer and I use it for my changes (the exception is TRACK tires!!!). It does sane $$$!
