Nitrogen won't expand as much as air when ur tires get hot. At least that's what I'm told, I've never tried it though.

There is almost 0 advantage over air, unless you are constantly faster then 140-150mph. Even then it's splitting hairs. Fast Bikes did an article on this, Moto GP and WSB use it to help keep tire temps down.

Whichever. Air is 75-80% nitrogen already. I've seen evidence to suggest that straight nitrogen can dry out the rubbee inside the tire. I just use air.
