The term I've come up with to describe apparent laws of physics and chance that dictate the valve stems on your wheels will be in the worst possible location when you want to check your tire pressures, making it necessary to roll the bike forwards or backwards a foot or two to get them in a more accessible location to get a tire gauge on them.

I like it! True too, when you roll the bike in to check the tire pressure the valve stems always seem to be at the top! Then I usually either roll it too far or not enough, resulting in re-positioning the bike at least twice to get the stems in the right place... And it's even worse on the Wing with all the extra crap in the way...
