Just thought I'd share this with you guys in case anybody is in need of such a thing.
I had made an appointment to get my US purchased tires installed on my BMW R1200RT at a local shop a week or so ago, but due to a SNAFU by said shop, wasn't able to get it done, causing much frustration. I related this story to the mobile mechanic that's done all the work on my bikes for the last few years, including valve jobs, throttle body sync, etc., and asked why he doesn't do tire changes too. Well, he didn't have a good answer, except that he didn't have the tools to do it.
Well, he has the tools now. Custom made bead breaker, No-Mar bar to mount and dismount the tires, and Marc-Parnes balancer with special insert just to do the singled sided wheels on the RT. He has a fully equipped van, and depending on the price, he can travel anywhere to do the tires for you. No more lugging tires and wheels around, no more wasting time in traffic, or waiting at a shop.
He came to my house at the set time, I had breakfast and a shower while he did his thing, and when I came out, it was all done. Got my son to take some pictures of the process.
Very reasonable price considering I didn't have to waste any of my time.
I don't know if I'm allowed to post his name and number on here, but PM me if anybody is interested.
Not a scratch on the painted wheels, and he used a torque wrench!! Haha.
