Is your valvestem straight out between the spokes or is it coming out of the rim on an angle? My Ultra has the stem on the angle and I have a window of about 15 degrees that I can get to it under the right saddle bag. About 4 years ago I installed a center stand as well so now I don't have to worry how I park it and I can just rotate the wheel to get to it.
