Self-sufficient, sure - but not fun at all.

Gosh, that was so much harder than expected... definitely paying a tyre guy next time.

But at least I know it's possible to change the Burgman front tyre with my 3 irons.

Somehow much tighter than a bigger SUV tyre, but and way harder than a regular motorcycle tyre. I think it's because there's not much sidewall. Took a few choice words! A couple of times I even attempted to rebel against hard work in favor of ease and convenience - almost said forget it, I'll drive it down to the tyreshop 😂 glad I didn't in the end.

Also changed the valve to a 90-degree one while I was there.

As for lifting the front, just a couple of bricks under the centerstand, and some weight on the back.

Seating the bead with the 12v compressor was a piece of cake 😎
