That is what I have on my Retro and Myrtle. Even keeps some wind off the hands. It does make getting to the key a little tricky on Myrtle (just like a cT, Tourist, Patrol or GU switch).

Mr Cob, those videos made me hate our warm temps over New Year, but only just a little...

Howdy BigJames,

I think I have mentioned this before but maybe not in this thread. The great thing about living where I do is that it rarely snows where I live but I can drive-ride 5-10 miles and be arse deep in snow, play in it then leave it behind as I head back home. The top of Green Mountain at 4,000 feet as the crow flies is 5 miles,10 miles by road, from my home which is at an elevation of 270 feet. This makes for a lot of fun in the old back yard so to speak. :boogie:

Geez, we are at the same elevation, but to get up high, have to go visit Bural, 250 miles away... It hardly ever snows here, or even close to us and when it does it a freaking hairball! People in Georgia are not mentally equipped to drive in snow... I am jealous... However, I am job hunting though, who knows, may end up there ... :foilhead:

As I started reading this ride report I realized very quickly that "Mike" is a good friend of mine and the reason I own a Ural today. I saw his at work one day and decided right there that I had to have one. It sucks that we live about 100 miles apart but I'm sure there will be much Uraling in the future. Mike was just telling me about this ride over the phone last week. Hope to meet you someday Mr Cob, and thanks for the Great report.
