got busy again, I haven't had time to get on the computer. My husband took the wheel off and since I can get a few more miles out of it, just had a straight valve put on it. He is looking for a source of right angle valves to order so that when I new get a new tire on, I can put a new valve on. Thanks so much for the offer, Hootmon, but we may be able to find some a little cheaper. Since we have 3 bikes, we plan on ordering several. As a side story, my daughter works at the same place I do when she is not in school. We bike pool to work together. The tire went flat on the way home, we were just a few miles from home and were able to limp home. The next two days we rode my VLX Shadow. The battery is old, it started and got us to work, but a cold front came in and when we got off work the battery was dead. No one had cables but a couple of co-workers pushed me and I was able to get it started and get home. My husband charged the battery and packed the charger on the bike so I could recharge it at work and make it home. However, my daughter showed up at the house the next morning in her car, no helmet or jacket and said she would drive, guess she doesn't trust me anymore. But since the Magna is up again we have been riding again.
