Anybody know of a shop, even a car place, that has tire irons in stock?
Got to save some $$$$$ for race entries.

Anybody want to learn to change tires by hand? There are some secrets to it.

An extra hand or two is always nice.

Yeah, I think i have. Was originally gonna go with the Bridgestone BT010's or 020's but probably will get the Sportec M1's. Looks like I can get them from http://www.discountmotorcycletire.com for $186 plus shipping (front and rear). What did you decide on?

Ouch, shipping is $21 from DMT, making the total $207. Looks like I'd better check out ronayer.com!
