That pretty much true!! Nitrogen is a bit lighter than oxygen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nitrogen
) and over time the two components will separate. Since the nitrogen makes up the majority of the air within your tire, you wind up with an unbalanced tire.
You'll also want to make sure you swap the stale air out in the spring if the bike has been hanging all winter.
This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.
