Re: Tire Chains: Anybody selling them in the US?

What is your ural year? Tire chain might not clear drive shaft Those were designed for bmw r75 +1 The R75 had a different width wheel & huge tire. The chain portion may be to long to fasten correctly. I'd guess there could be a couple of problems. Surprised the Russians don't offer them for Ura...

Re: Not a Ural - new to stable though

For whatever its worth, Back rests/sissy bars are dangerous, & have proven to increase injury in an accident. plus not needed on a solo machine.
Not telling anybody what to do - but I wouldn't use one myself.

Re: Something awful

4 years ago I sold my 1994 650 Ural rig on Ebay for even MORE. But it was in great shape & ran great.

Re: Kids in the Sidecar

Based on my personal experience, I would not use a seat belt in a side car unless there was also a roll bar. My son (11 at the time) and I hydroplaned off the Blue Ridge Parkway on a Ural 2 years ago, and we went over the edge of the mountain on a very steep embankment. The bike flipped and dumped ...

Re: Boots: What Ya Wearing? - What Fits b/t Jugs & Levers

I graduated from bread bags to rubber wellington boots after one of the bags almost filled with water from a hole.

Re: Some recent photos taken of the warbike...

I have admired all your photo work. I noticed this time you have a less sultry model. K9's are seldom fickle & always a hit.
Thanks for sharing !

Re: Riding w/ a dog in the rain.

The P.O of my Ural, had modified the Tonneau cover, with a smile shaped zippered slot, so the head & shoulders of a small passenger could poke through. This might be sufficient - with the windshield - to keep a passenger dry. I have also seen Barbour w@* cotton dog coats occasionally on Ebay. Si...

Re: Boots: What Ya Wearing? - What Fits b/t Jugs & Levers

Road Spray: HaHa, when I was younger & more enthusiastic, I rode in all types of weather. I eventually purchased Wellington Gum Boots for wet weather. Before doing that I carried a roll of bread bags to wear over my boots. I have been wearing Barbour/Bellstaff type oiled cotton riding suits for ...

Re: Kids in the Sidecar

I have learned over the years, that if certain outcomes from activities are completely unacceptable - NOT to participate in those activities.
Think about it.

Re: Weird insurance question (Updated)

Progressive is evil - IMO. Never had a problem with MARKEL OR DAIRYLAND. I have Dairyland full coverage now on my URAL outfit & Royal Enfield + comprehensive, towing /road service. For about $250. a year.

Re: Steering Damper

I have missed having a traditional friction steering damper on all the motorcycles I've owned (since their era) that don't have them.

Re: Boots: What Ya Wearing? - What Fits b/t Jugs & Levers

The Clodhoppers they sell as motorcycle boots today are way to bulky for my size 12.5 feet. My style of riding involves keeping my feet on the pegs, I also like to feel the shift lever & brake pedal action to monitor performance. So I cant use the clunky waffle rubber soles or steel toed door br...

Re: Towing a trailer behind a Ural: What's your experience?

I do whatever I can - to avoid pulling any type of trailer. That goes double for a Ural, IMO.
