I had a Bosch one and it was rubbish
Brother had one too and that confirmed the above
Got very hot in use and batteries failed very quickly
Anything more than a bicycle tyre and it was stumped
That was a few years ago so things may have improved  :rolleyes:
Had a few cheap car ones too and they've been OK for the odd car tyre but never lasted long
Finally went for a T-MAX portable inflator and it'll blow up big 4x4 tyres in minutes  :cool:

Very nice, proper Jag  :cool:
Had a bright red one, with black leather, on a 'Y' plate and it was great
Was surprisingly reliable but the rot around the rear window was its downfall  :cry:

Definitely agree on the ZX7R, green obviously  :cool:
Could find space for a yellow 748R too
Love to have back the CG125 I learned to ride on, like riding a pogo-stick, £15 to fill and would last all month!
