    He really made that look easy. I find mounting tires to be just a bit more difficult. A few years ago I bought the “Horizons Unlimited” tire mounting video. A great video that has saved me A LOT of money. Now I mount all the tires on my bikes as well as my brother’s KLR. It really isn’t all that hard and it’s a good thing to know if you often find yourself in places where you don’t even have cell phone signal.

      the Heidenau K60 tires are really hard to break the bead…tough carcuss as they say…so far we have nnot had to do trail tire maintenance other than plug the tire. I would love though to get a tire changer for our garage so we can easily switch our tires based on where we are riding the most

        I just mounted the K60’s on my Strom and the K76’s on the Triumph as my summer tires. They are much stiffer than the TKC’s I stud for winter, but still only a little harder to get mounted.

    Thank you I enjoyed this very much I need to brush up on my tire skills to say the least. Very interesting.
