I'll be leaving Bothell at 6:30 from the Home Depot lot and looking to reach Bellevue about 3:30pm (family commitment) - hopefully that will allow me to beat the traffic a...
Is any of the forum members performing tire changes (on or off the bike)? I'd rather support someone from the group with her/his machine purchase and maintenance before I go to a shop. I do have tires already in my garage.
