    Just wondered if anyone can recommend a home tyre pump with pressure gauge, as attempting to get garage airlines to attach securely to the valve is just so damn frustrating.  :232:

    I use a Joe Blow Sport. Does a good job and manometer is perfect.

    I use one of these http://tyreinflatorguide.com/ring-automotive-rac600-review/ Had it 7 years and still going strong. Then check with decent gauge after pumping.

    I have something similar Dave:

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RAC-12v-Car-Motorcycle-Motor-Bike-Compact-Mini-Tyre-Air-Compressor-Inflator-Pump/201022107463?epid=1042347570&hash=item2ecdd9ef47:g:-nYAAOSwnNBXZp0D

    I keep it in the little Givi bag under the rear rack.  Only used it to top up tyres while im away (have a compressor in the garage)  but it works fine.

    I have the same (pretty much) pump as Mick9879. Pretty quick and accurate for bike and car tyres.
    Nowadays, they all seem to come with straight screw on connectors which are a bit of a pain to attach. 
    My old-school approach is that a I have a brass 90 degree connector attached to the connector on the pump and I screw the other end of that onto the valve.
    Seems to work well enough and I lose very little air on and off.

    Just yo add. I had angled valve fitted at the first tyre change. Such a good mod.
