Air VS Nitrogen in tires

I am sure this topic has come up a million times. Just wondering what everyones thoughts are on the subject.
I found this link. http://cruiserlinks.com/motorcycle-a...orcycle-tires/

Only a biker knows why a dog puts his head out of a window of a moving vehicle.

I have a bridge in San Fran for sale, too.

You can ride over and see it with the nitrogen charged tires.

I use a custom mix: 78.09% nitrogen, 20.95% oxygen, 0.93% argon, 0.04% carbon dioxide, and small amounts of other gases. Maybe a bit of water vapor too, depends on if it's raining when I hook up the AIR pump!

It's just something mostly to get people's money. The car dealer where I worked was charging $10 a tire for it, and out of a portable nitrogen machine the purity isn't very good anyway. Just dry air is just as good.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

That sounds very close to the blend I use, + or - .01 percent, here or there.
