#$% - Tire change help this weekend?

TZR is going to be closed this weekend for Byron. Anyone with spoons and tools want to make a quick $40 this weekend and swap out the front tube on my YZF250?

I can bring the bike to you along with a tube. Just need someone with the talent and time.

Somewhat flexible - prefer to change it in time to ride on Monday.

Located in West Dundee/Elgin area.

PM or email torney (at) gmail (dot) com

Thanks!

If you would like to drag that heap all the way down here to Joliet I can do it. I assume it would take me around an hour or so, depending on my level of intoxication.

Where are you riding on monday?

Normally I'd offer to help but I don't have anytime to spare this weekend unfortunately. If you don't get it done this weekend, I could take care of it next weekend or possibly during the week. Not far from you in Pingree Grove.

Thanks all. Tempting as it sounds to road trip and watch Jack slur through the job - I decided to punt and take the pedal bike out tomorrow instead. If you can't beat em join em right?

Appreciate the willingness to help as always!

Wait What?

If you are in a spot, I have a changer and some tools but you'd have to go slumming back to the city.

Hell no. I watched this redneck do it in a storage yard one time. Turned me off the process for good! (if you wouldn't have moved, there might have been a crisp $10 bill for you to do the job - see what you missed out on?!)
