Beware the inverted nipple.

Flopping on a new Tourance and decided to replace the nipple.
A bit of a D'oh moment, thought it might be appreciated in here.
Yes I am quite serious.

Shit! I just blew a moth full of whisky on my monitor! Thanks for that laugh. We all have moments like that, good you are willing to share yours.
Everything's better in retrospect.

I'm guessing you picked up a case of beers instead of a 6 pack for this project.

Look… It's not in my nature to be mysterious, but I can't talk about it and I can't talk about why.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that does stupid the last time I changed my tires. I installed it backwards the first time...ok, stupid mistake, thought I checked. I removed the tire, checked up and down, and then reinstalled it...backwards again!! Holy hell I was pissed. 3rd time was a charm though. and yes I was sober.

No matter how good you are, or how much experience you have, anyone is likely to make simple mistakes given the law of averages.

Personally I have installed tires backwards more than twice, among the numerous little mistakes I have made!

Don't take that out! Its there to maintain the atmospheric pressure of the world. You take it out and the air leaks out into the tire and life as we know it is over.

I bought the metal ones because it's easier to check pressure and fill with the compressor in my garage. This leads to checking more often which is a good thing

I put the fork legs and wheel and brake caliper back on my DR650 after completing the factory lower job and was very pleased with myself.

Two days later I found the rubber fork gaiters on the shelf!
