The gray haired dude in the video would be me. And thanks Jim, you are so kind.... The dude in the video has no gray hair.

It was a pretty tricky piece of work.....
I had to calculate all the contact points in order to get a perfect alignment and contact patch for each motorcycle wheel. Each tire had to have the exact air pressure in order to make contact with each adjacent wheel (we don't need no stinking TPMS modules here). One of my competitors tried taking this business away from me..... Guess who only makes them now???
