Modified the text on my videos to correct the number of Urals and now I know why that BMW was sitting there when we got back from lunch. Gene, Becky and a host of others worked their tails off setting this up and kept telling a lot of us who were willing to help to go have fun instead...

What?? Urals in a pile somewhere? Redones here, black ones there, what about flat or shiney paint? Language is weird when you actually read what you said. :)

Why did you need "sorting out that many rigs"? :lol:

Hey SM

What?

A Ural pile up :lol: No pictures :( didn't happen :P

Since Holopaw is the OP and the event was at his shop, most of the Urals he was bragging on were probably set up or
sorted out by his shop :D

again Gene :bow: way to go!!!

I have worked in a 1 man bike shop for 14 years now :D
and I am responsible (if you ask the owner's) for a few hundred sickles and when a pile of them gather for local events
it's always rewarding to not have any mechanical issues :foilhead:

Hope this helps with the writing weirdness :lol:

British English vs American English. In the UK, "sorting out" means setting up, fixing, or otherwise taking care of.

Did you truly not know this, or were you joking a bit to move the post conversation along? If the former, I highly recommend hanging around with some Brits for a while, or better yet, going and visiting. Or just reading or watching some British books or shows. If the latter, well, everyone's sense of humor is a little different, I suppose.

Hey TR

On this side of the pond :lol: in the power sport industry (aka the motorcycle business)

"set up" usually refers to new vehicles and it's listed in the cost "delivery & set up"

where as "sorting out" usually refers to the fine tuning and repairing of any issues of used vehicles

and since Holopaw does both new sales and service I was referring to their ability :bow: to
properly!!! set up a new rig, not just put it together :) which I read many dealers struggle with :o
and also their skill :bow: at sorting out the older rigs that they maintain for everyone
as per their reputation and they 50+ Urals with NO issues :boogie: :boogie: :boogie:

But it's all just words :lol:
turning a nut is the same if you do it with a spanner or a wrench 8)

But since I seamed to upset everyone with my incorrect terminology AGAIN!!!

I will get my wife to check my post before I submit them :(


NOT!!!! :P

Holopaw Crew keep up the GREAT work!!!!!!
I'm sorry for the thread drift :( but it's SS so :old:

I'd like to point out something about the weather during the rally. It was perfect. Devine intervention. Saturday mid day it actually started to get hot. Well, a huge cloud came over and just stopped. Enough to cool down the day but not too cloudy to spoil things. Then at night we had totally clear skies with a full super moon. Sunday clear sunny skies for the group ride to St.Cloud for lunch. Perfect weather for a perfect rally!

True that about the cloud Saturday. Go to Ride Reports, have 4 videos posted there and others have posed pics as well...

Rigs came from a bunch of different dealers. IMZ marks the frames to assist with set up. Can still see the markings on my M70. I was just amazed at the number of Retros and M70s! I like them so much, have one of each! If Ural simply made more and at least put them in an ad or let a magazine ride them, would/could sell a lot more of them! 40 a year is too few... IMHO.

TriumphRider98 and cateyetech, some folks just like to make comments in an attempt to make themselves feel good at the expense of others. I understood what you all meant with no issue...saying that, my mother-in-law is British as is one of my sidecars... :foilhead:

"Sorting out" can also mean a fight. :D

Examples: "I'm gonna sort 'im out in a minute", "He needs a good sorting out", "He was sorted out good and proper" :D

As they say somewhere, British and Americans similar people, separated by a common language. A bloody good observation if i dare say so! :cheers: :boogie: :boogie:
