Re: Ural tool bag

https://www.sportsmansguide.com/product/index/military-style-mechanics-bag?a=70900 I keep one of these in my truck with some tools. Much cheaper. +1, harbor freight sells them even cheaper. I use them in my cars, & bought a heavy duty denier nylon tool roll that is better than the one URAL sell...

Re: After market full enclosure for hack?

Last enclosures I saw were the add on tops for vintage Stieb sidecars, some were even good looking hard tops. I kind of remember some sort of ugly tops for some ugly sidecars I ignored. Much as I love sidecar outfit piloting, I'm not masochistic enough to use mine in foul weather - nobody I know wou...

Re: Feasibility of all weather riding PNW

I think the answer is different for every rider - largely depending on the individuals youth & enthusiasm. Years ago, I rode my Triumph or BMW to work in Atlanta for about 10 years, in all weathers except snow (not good for 2 wheels). I had excellent cotton oil cloth gear, even a Kradmantle stor...

Re: Brembo plugs

Henry Ford specified the dimensions for the wood shipping crate for the castings of the transmission hogshead for the Model T, which were outsourced. The wood crate pieces became the floorboards in the T. And, as the story goes, he also paid his workers enough that they could afford to buy a model ...

Re: Out of State Gun sale?

Hi Lew, Suggest you sell it on http://www.gunbroker.com . You will be able research pricing & shipping rules there, then sign up, & set your minimum bid. You will get nation wide lookers, & probably highest dollar possible. GB doesn't charge much per sale. You will then need to have a fr...

Re: Latest Royal Enfield offering - 650 twin

I love the RE's. The C5 and B5 are beautiful machines but they are 500CC. Will the 650CC be any beefier and can it handle a full figured guy? At least the Tourist is a beast and can handle my height and weight. Oh yeah... I had a good look at one last weekend and they look very promising. It'd hand...

You couldn't pay me enough to make this journey. Gringos aren't very popular south of the border, & you are not allowed to take a weapon. if they even find 1 bullet it's JAIL ! Never mind that you have little mechanical ability & are talking about using one of the more needy machines made, w...

Latest Royal Enfield offering - 650 twin

I've owned a RE 500cc G5 Deluxe for a few years & enjoyed it very much. Here are pix of the new RE 650 twin. it weighs in just under 400lb, & can be bought in Touring or Café trim. They have a twin loop frame EFI, front & rear disc brakes. They are what traditional British motorcycles ar...

Re: Keeping It In The Family

Just noticed the SUN VISOR, those were wonderful, but they did rather limit vision of hanging traffic stop lights. They made a cool accessory for that. It is a decorative chrome stalk wit a clear, wide angle PRISM on top - made to mount on the dash - to show traffic lights. First time I saw one - I ...

Re: Fly and Ride? NOOOO !
