7. Which tire is it already?!


Joey Lombardo is one of the best in the business when it comes to turning a wrench and making a motorcycle go faster. The former Superbike mechanic now turns the spanners for Kawasaki, but he so graciously offered to help sling tires on and off for all the bikes. Why is he on the list? First, because he deserves a mention and a big MO thumbs up. Second, because he had to install and remove multiple rear tires after a certain editor (ahem, me) initially assigned the wrong tires to the wrong wheels. He did it gladly, cracking jokes the whole time (usually about me). Don’t worry, eventually the correct tires made it on the correct wheels.
