I don't think so the only real advantages is that over a long time the nitrogen won't leak out as fast as air thru the rubber (but you should be checking your air pressure regularly anyway) and nitrogen won't be effected like regular air from temperature change which will only be 2 or 3 psi difference. Now if your on a sport bike averaging over 140 mph's then you might want to look into it. If you can get pure nitrogen free then yeah go for it but if you have to pay for it then I say don't bother unless your like my wife and never ever checks or inspects the tires then you could use nitrogen There won't be any difference in the ride.

Worth it if you get it for free. I wouldn't pay for it. I use to run it in everything when the dealership I worked at had it. It doesnt leak out as fast. Doesn't expand like air does. Its nice at the track.

just as an fyi, my local dealer sells valve stem tabs that show the pressure in the tires. got them instead of the nitrogen. cost me 10$ for the set and it does two bikes

However, if you do get a slow leak or add to the tire yourself for any reason, unless you plan on going back to the dealer every time you want to adjust tire pressure you completely defeat the purpose of nitrogen by adding regular good ole fashioned air:)
