I've never been a wrench, but I've been hanging out learning a lot from this board. I picked up a big nail in my rear tire a couple of weeks ago and decided it was time for new tires. With the confidence gained from Bare's site and the VTXOA Garage, I decided it was time to take up the tools and try. I did my own front and rear wheel removal and reinstall after new Metzlers were mounted. I was even able to replace brake pads front and rear before putting the wheels back on. I know, not a big deal for some of you but quite an accomplishment for me. Thanks for all I've learned so far--next comes a valve check. Oh, I didn't have to rejet!!
