	My guess would be to prevent a flat spot at the contact patch. Also
because the temperature will most likely drop a lot, and if it drops your tire
pressure far enough, it may separate from the rim. Just speculation, 'cause
here in Texas we winterize by filling up the tank twice a week and ridin' the
heck out of it!
