It is that time for me to get new tires for my bike and so i don't have to try to organize the logistical nightmare of trying to drop off the bike get back to the house to get truck to get to work then back home then find a ride back to shop to pick up bike. I have decided I will remove my wheels and just take them to the shop. My question to everyone is how hard is it to remove and then to install correctly your back wheel (getting it straight etc) is it fairly simple or more of a pain in the a$$ and just leave it to the pros. Can someone give a step by step or a few points of what not to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated b/c I have an appt tomorrow morning one way or the other.

I just did my rear wheel - it was a breeze! There is no aligning for the modern roadglide; just mark where the original axle cam was set and then put it back to that position. The hardest part is lifting the wheel back and putting the axle through it - I had my wife do that. Some folks recommend a belt tension measurement but since I replaced the cam to OEM I just moved it a fraction to tighten the belt a little.Of course the front wheel is even easier. Follow the manual if you have one or come back and I'll copy and post what you need.
