Got mine the other day. Haven't had a chance to play with it, but it seems very nicely made.

The extended pusher for my 23" tire is just what I'd hoped for. The rod is the same length, the rack is longer. Yay!

Not at all sure it will handle the horribly heavy Harley tire, but maybe. It'll make spooning easier, regardless. I don't think anything less than six comalongs will handle that tire.

Hugs and kisses to you Pineymountain!

Not sure what qualifies for Sport Touring tires but I put a Pilot Road 3 on my Tiger 1050 front and rear a while ago. No issues even during my first try at the new tool, worked well and no scratches.

Thanks Piney...........mine was delivered on Monday....finally picked it up on Friday!

I put some bicycle inner tube over the threads of the optional adapters that I got.
I think I might just put a wing nut bolt into the threaded hole in the tool so I do not need a tool to change the adapters.

The tires I can see I will have trouble with are the single sided swing arm wheels like on my R1200 BMW's.

But all the other bikes, the tool should work fine.

Thanks again for all your effort Piney!!

Both the flat rate box and Are's box. It's all good, tool is in great shape.

Good idea, I had a small padded aluminum box that the tool fits in perfectly, I just cut a slot for the Allen, but it would be easy to lose.

I think I have an extra Are box left over from the first GB if you want it - that way when you pass the tool on to your grand kids, you'll have an official box to put it in. I can just drop it off this summer on my way west LOL

Perfect! Although somehow I doubt the box would survive the long ride.

I think everything has been delivered, hopefully all those loose tires have been mounted and nobody's running around on cords..

I'm jammed up trying to get out of town next week, I'll be up in the mountains a couple weeks and one evening when I'm too tired to go ride, I'll sit down and organize the waiting list and post it up. Then we can decide if GB III goes down or not.
