Mechanical first

I've done a lot of wrenching including some major stuff, but oddly, yesterday was the first time I changed a motorcycle tire.

Being a Yamaha, disassembly was easy and straightforward. Being a 21 inch DOT knobby even the levering wasn't too bad, although anything stiffer and I'd really want a major length to reduce the grunt element of the job.

Didn't have that tire lube stuff so spit had to do.
