Wagner's in Arkansas

Years ago I talked to the good folks at Wagner's near Hot Springs Arkansas before I bought my first Ural. I was still in college and visiting my parents in Arkansas. I convinced my folks to stop in and take a look at the bikes. Dad was completely dismissive of anything Russian. I know Wagner's has c...

Re: unofficial URAL RACE! calling all Ural

Do this. I doubt I would have enough vacation to do it all so I will start the volunteer help list. I''ll bring the sidecar or solo to help with check-in/start-out as needed at at least one site.

Make a group ride out of it. Join when/where you can. Might be dodgy for me time-wise, but would be very interested to know when it happens. Maybe provide a little funding myself.

Re: FAIR WARNING, not pretty

Last parting shot on my part. He claims to be a professional photographer on FB. The video I watched looked to be shot by a complete amateur. Stay focused on the prime subject. He kept reading responses on FB so I kept seeing his ugly mug smirking on the screen instead of the bike being destroyed. N...

Re: Intake snorkel hoses

If you're looking to go from air cleaner to carbs, you might try John Deere B35601 Hose. This is a flexible rubber hose used on John Deere fertilizer units. Think I paid $11 each. Used them on 750s and was satisfied. Not sure if they will work on 650, but throw it out there for consideration.

Re: BINGO! cheap, fast and easy

What you need is a tool rental program for those of us that will need this once in a lifetime. 1/3 of the price plus shipping? Just guessing as I have never really thought about this before. I expect to do this once, maybe twice in my life and have little room for extraneous tools, but LOVE the ide...

Re: New Old Guy in Indiana

That's one heck of a population! I'm halfheartedly trying to sell my Retro. I've put out limited listings, but if someone interested rang my bell I wouldn't hesitate to work a deal. It will be tricky to find room for it in Evansville garage if I move down there. If it ends up in Evansville with me w...

Re: FS: Old style compliance fittings

Where did you get the rubber? I didn't think it was available anymore. I have a bike that had those originally and would like to put them back on!

2012 Black Retro w/Sidecar

The time has come to sell my 2012 Ural Retro (~3,000 Km). It has been a great city rider for me and I hate to sell it, but we are downsizing and my Indian is monopolizing my time. The Indian Chieftain seems more suited to the riding I will be doing in the future and my '05 Retro Solo, which I am _sl...

Re: Running-in a new D10 crankshaft

Gobium,

Thank you for these very educational posts. I have learned quite a bit reading (and watching) your posts. Thank you so much for taking the time to produce these learning tools. I know it is not easy to produce something of this quality.

Re: Albuquralque & Gobium yard sale

Thanks much for the video. Unfortunately, I've had a change of fortune and will not be purchasing the Lutz crank tool at this time.

Better Half in Indiana!

Due to economic issues and professional specialties, my wife will be moving to Evansville, IN, in the next couple of months, living there for at least a couple of years. We've found a nice house for her, now I just need to decide what toys go where! Here are the choices: 2012 Ural Retro with Sidecar...
