Sighting in LITH, IL

Red and White Ural with a large gray trunk mounted over the spare wheel. Parked at Lowes'. Belong to anybody on here? My other half really liked it, so that's a step in the right direction.

It might have been Bill. Did it have a too... nevermind, wrong color.
95% of all Urals built in the last ten years are still on the road....The other 5% made it home.

It was well traveled. I didn't really pay attention to the license plate. A lot of those little oval state stickers on the back of the chair. Newer, though, disk brakes all around.

I have seen a Patrol in these parts on occasion. Hard to miss with a license plate that reads 'COMRADE'
