    Picked up a new item from the dealer today. A valve core extension for those hard to get to valve stems especially when on the road. Tried it out on the bagger, worked great. Do need to add a couple extra pounds of air cause you loose a little when unscrewing it. Here is a couple of pics.

    My wife wanted to get an air extension so I asked her, "why, isn't your hair long already?"

    I'm going to carry it with me and if on a trip and I would have to put air in a tire at some gas stop this little tool will sure make it a lot easier. There is not a lot of room between the brake rotor and valve stem on the newer baggers and especially so if you have spokes.

    Will put them in next time forgot to do that when I had the tire replaced after the trip back east. My wife has spoked wheels on her rear tires that are also hard to get to and I'll also use it for that.
