Sulphur dioxide, then you can smell leaks before they become a problem

For the keyboard adventurers amongst us --- Macbook air is the best for posting on ADV.

So, we will no longer say "I got a flat", but instead "my tyres were off gassing"?

For deep water crossins you need more air in yer tyres. Air floats on water so more of it and you'll float across.

AussieMasada - you'll get the bends if you go too fast with some mixtures. Could save on beer costs.

SYDADVGS - how many Macbook airs to make 15psi in a 300 21? Supposed to run longer so maybe less flats? Report back on yer millage...

Flat tyre = tyre talkin out of turn.

I've heard you can go longer between changes with synthetic air. I still prefer the hand pumped stuff, though.

but, if I use "Air Liquide" (that's French for Liquid Air), can I just pour it into my tyre and there's no need for pumping it?
And is Liquid Air anything like Liquid Sunshine? If so, can I use that in my tyres in an emergency?

Yes but make sure it is the fully synthetic air, not the semi-synthetic.

I myself ran the tubes and tyres in using normal sea-level air for the first 100kms (and don't even ask if I followed the owners manual reccomendation or the take it out and ride it like I stole it method.) Then I enmptied the normal air and went to a fully synthetic air. I proceeded to ride 100kms, then drain the air and replace.

I now drain the air every 150kms and re-fill with a fully synthetic, but I am think of changing to the Shell Diesel Air everybody swears by.

My mate with a KLR visits the local Bob Jane and gets the air they have let out of old tyres (for nothing) and uses that

You have to marvel at the way Kawasaki thinks and looks after the enviroment. At the end of every working day young Hirohito sweeps up the floor and collects all the metal shavings and discarded bits and walla! another KLR is born.
