    ....read through the posts and several of us own the Sears unit you first asked about and we all recommended it.

    I've got that $40 HF compressor. Works great. Not very loud, either.

    I've had that model for about 1 year and it does everything I need from filling tires to occasional light duty air ratcher. Noisy if you are standing next to it but I generally stretch the hose out to where ever the bike or car is so the noise is not a big deal. Go to your local HF and pick up a 15" Goodyear hose, a couple of sets of fittings and whatever air chuck fits your wheels best. The one that comes with the compressor is almost impossible to use on the FJR. I bought one with a 45 degree double chuck and then bent the pipe so make it easier to fit on the valve stem.
