Bleeding on my iPhone

Not too long ago I bigged-up Speed Bleeders.  Those friendly brake bleeder fittings with a built-in check-valve.

When I bought that set for the ZX6R, I also bought a set for the SV650's front calipers, figuring that I'd be bleeding them eventually as well.  And sure enough, the front lever got soft today.  So I dug the package of brand spanking-new Speed Bleeders out of a drawer; drained the old nastiness and installed the new bleeders.

Then my Dad gave me a ring and I talked to him while I bled both calipers with one hand.  Man, that open-squeeze-close-release method is for the birds.
