I quit smokes about 10 years ago. Only way I could do it was switch to Dip. Grizzly long cut straight. Damn if it isn't harder to quit than cigarettes. I'm getting me whatever gauge it takes, I don't care if it costs $100.

Me too. Part of the problem is the cost; expensive is not always indicative of quality. Nor is the origin of manufacturer, although some offshore countries are notorious for chit. I do have a reliable, repeatable, accurate tire gauge. It's one of my favorite tools, 20 years old!

I just bought a TV, it says 'built in antenna'. I don't even know where that is!

That was what I got but thought I paid more than the $22.

I have the one made by Cruz Tools...I've used it in conjuction with my friends big dollar gauge we use for drag racing. It has been true to it's numbers for almost 10 years.

Plus having the extended length valve stem hose (that Harley sells) makes it practical to use on any valve stem configuration. When I use the extension I over inflate by 1 to 2 pounds and that makes up for the loss unscrewing the hose. I have tested that by using the hose where it was not needed and rechecking after unscrewing it.

Easy-peazy works for me

I bought one of these about four years ago and it's been great. The chuck swivels making it easier to get at the valve stem and the pressure release valve makes it easy to adjust.

The don't ever buy anything from HD crowd here you go. The Air gauge HD offers is one that fits right in to check the air. Well made and Last for years bouncing around in the Tour pack. I had one that broke and Hd warrantied it. But No way you buy for HD . So keep going with the walmart ones offer in different wrapper by Bubba
