Tire pump portable

I have one of these tire pumps. It is lithium battery powered. You set the pressure desired up to 150psi and press the button. It will shut off when desired pressure is achieved. This took about 30 seconds/lb. I aired 12 flat motorcycle tires on one battery charge. It can be charged via 12v or wall plug. Very light in weight. So far sooo happy. Therisa wants one for christmas.

1976 R90s Silver Smoke For Sale

I was asked to post this.

 

1976 R90s Silver Smoke, 55K, #’s Matching, Very nice with many period correct upgrades, $ 11,500

Well maintained and cared for. Always garaged and covered. A local airhead restorer rates the bike at 9.5 out of 10. Paint is not original, but is of original factory quality. The bike is in excellent mechanical condition. Everything works. It is ready to ride and has been running on non-ethanol gas with additives to prevent deterioration of seals. Lester wheels are currently installed with near new Bridgestone Spitfire tires and I have the original wheels (in excellent condition) with like new OEM Continental tires mounted. A Corbin seat is currently installed, but I have the original seat. Both are in excellent condition. The voltmeter and clock are /6, not original. The speedometer/tach module was repaired and calibrated by Overseas Instruments in 2015. Battery is brand new. Other period correct upgrades & accessories include upper fork brace, dual plug heads, electronic ignition, Koni shocks, stainless steel brake lines, Krauser Bags, luggage rack and chrome engine guards.

Utah Rally tire issue

I am pleased to report that my tire claim was approved and the check for the new tire came in a few days. I had the MOA Platinum membership which will pay for two tires per year due the unrepairable damage. Just read the fine print and follow it. I am now ahead $ wise for several yrs on dues. $250.00 rear tire paid for with MOA insurance. Happy happy
