    I've got the old school cycle hill tire changer that I've been using for almost 10 years now(that's hard to believe, but it was given to me as a gift in 09, guess I'm getting old). If you ride any decent amount of time to where you're changing at least a couple of sets a year, it pays for itself in no time. Of course shops were trying to charge me $30-40 per wheel with me bringing them the wheel/tire, a little excessive to throw on a tire. Last time I balanced a tire was about 9 years ago. :lol3

    Last time going there I think... it was 28/tire + 10/tire since I didn’t but then there. Total is over $90. That’s WITH me removing the wheels and bringing them in. ‍♂️

    A little off topic, but can anyone recommend a good moto shop in the triad that I could take my Tiger to for suspension upgrade work? After some back and forth, I’m aiming to buy once cry once and do the whole thing: fork cartridges, springs, and rear shock/spring as well. Lacking the tools, workspace, and know-how to tackle a job like this, I’d be looking for a turn key deal since I can’t pull my fork tubes and send them off for rebuild. Any recommendations appreciated!

    If you don't mind a little bit of a drive, I would trust my stuff with Rick at Cogent Dynamics. If you want to stay local to the triad, Jim at Maxspeed knows suspension pretty well.

    +1 for Rick at Cogent. He is a inmate here on ADVrider or you can call them at 828-628-9025. Ask for Rick, Todd, or Joyce. They have a garage in Fairview NC but they also do a lot of upgrades on forks and shocks you send them off the bike.

    I’m still waiting to fly out of Greensboro....
    I hear that we are gonna have bad weather all week. I may just find a bike in Richmond and ride home rather than wait on flights all day again.....
