Yep, about 78% of the air in each of my tires is Nitrogen.

Cosco puts it in and since my wife got her tires there and she take great pride in keeping an I on them (HA she drove 4 miles on a flat the other day-Cosco man took one look and put her a new tire on- had 20K on the tire, balanced and rotated all 4 and charged her $20 for the 20K prorate. ), they maintain the pressure.
Like the man said above, regular air is mostly nitrogen and for a car or motorcycle it's a waste of time and not going to do anything measurable in a real world situation -just play on words. There are few places you can get service on it. If it gives you warm cuddly filling it won't hurt but I would not pay extra for it. just my opinion
