Default Automatic tyre changing machines for bikes?

Does anybody know if motorcycle tyres can be removed/mounted on those automatic tyre changing machines? I'v only seen them used for 4 wheeler rims/alloys.

I'm sure almost everyone has had their rims/alloys suitably scarred by crude puncture guys. Using one of those machines can save us a lot of heartburn... hence the question.

for mounting and un-mounting the same machine can be used just that you need to talk to the wheel alignment guy and get to do this for you bike thats all.

As the guy at xbhp have already told you, the tire changing machines used for changing car tyres can do two wheeler tyres too.
