"Big Boy" Wheel Jockey® - Cruiser Wheel Chores Made Easy - Hot Bike Magazine
Charlotte, N.C. (October 2011) Wheel Jockey®, www.wheeljockey.com, releases their new "Big Boy" Wheel Jockey motorcycle tool (Patent No. 8,002,122) that offers cruiser and touring riders help with the bothersome task of rotating motorcycle wheels for cleaning, tire and drive belt/chain maintenance and checking tire pressure. Once a motorcycle is easily "walked" onto the Wheel Jockey, wheels turn on heavy duty ball bearing rollers and provide access to the entire tire, wheel or final drive mechanism.
Big Boy is designed specifically for use on bigger bikes - bikes up to 950 lbs - yet is small enough to stow easily in most saddlebags. Says industry veteran and owner Bill Kniegge, "The real challenge designing the Big Boy Wheel Jockey® was creating a tool that worked on heavier cruiser and touring bikes, easy enough for one person to use alone, and even small enough to take on the road with you."
Made in USA, of high quality components, the Big Boy Wheel Jockey® weighs less than 3 lbs and measures 8"x 5"x 1.5". Manufacturer's retail price is $89.00 plus shipping.
The Big Boy Wheel Jockey® is the latest product offered by Wheel Jockey, who originally created the innovative Jockey "Sport" (model 0055) for owners of sport bikes, standards and middleweight Cruisers up to 650 lbs.
Wheel Jockey® was founded in 2008 by Bill & Debbie Kniegge and is headquartered in Waxhaw, NC. Wheel Jockey products are designed to assist motorcycle riders in the maintenance and care of their Motorcycle's drive chains, wheels and tires. Bill Kniegge has over 30 years of experience in the motorcycle industry with a variety of well known brands. Wheel Jockey products are sold in the USA through dealers and the company's website.
