    Therapy - Taking a Ride

    I have a lot to do today, but after all the recent tragedy in my life, I'm going riding on the old faithful V-Max. It's a nice day, and a lot of other bikers are out. I need to show them who's king. :biglaugh: Y'all know it's therapeutic!

    Can one, by him or her self, take the tire off the alloy by simple use of their hands and tools found in the home? Or does it require a proper specialist machine??
