Uralist

I am planning the recon trip for August the 3rd. It is a Saturady. I want to see the pavolin and map out a course for a 2 to 2.5 hour ride for outting. Any one is invite to the recon if you wish to ride along and help plan a route. I am thinking it would be good to meetup early maybe 8 or 8:30 am.

The Labor Day gathering is looking like several fokes will be attending. I have at less 6 ural and one side car on the list right now.

Any that wants more information please feel free to PM me.

Land Elephan and Mike is this a good day for the recon?

Ural Patch.png


This is a patch that I am working on for those attending this event. I would like to get some feed back on like or dislike. I thought it would be nice to have a patch that sets us apart. Oh yah our rigs do that all by themselves. Okay so I am trying.

Yesterday Saturday July 13th I picked up my 2011 Gobi from Sealy Cycle Center after some engine work. Bike is running great. I meet a new Uralist that just purchased the 2013 Yamel. I was excited for him though I forgot to get his name. I am hoping that he'll join us on Labor Day. I did remember to tell him about the forum and the upcoming event. Let's hope he'll read the forum.

Sealy did a wonderful job of resetting up my bike and it handles like a charm. have to take it easy for the next 500Km the pistons and jugs and rings had to be replaced. The first dealership did not setup the bike correctly so URAL USA took great care of me and got me with Sealy's team.

I'm ready to for the upcome Recon ahead of the Labor Day outing. I am trying to setup a meeting spot for those that will join me on the recon ride. I am looking at the Love Truck Stop at US59 and FM2025 in Cleveland TX. still would like to meet up between 8:00 and 8:30. the goal is to confirm the picnic provillion and scout out a nice ride through the forest for the Labor Day Ride IN.

In N Ky until at least the end of Aug. Maybe I can go an alternate route and come down through Houston on the way back. Should have the Bandit/TX sidecar on the trailer, but at least it should be running . . . :lol:

We'll take you anyway just as long as you get to come. I am praying for a good turnout, I know it will be enjoyable for those attending. Keep us posted on your travel plans and times.

i was hoping to be able to make the recon, but i am waiting for my mechanic to get the parts to replace fork seals in the Virago that now serves as tug with the California Companion. i was at the Uncertain Rendezvous last year, but did not make the Spring Turd this year. if he gets the parts in before saturday i will let him start on it, if he doesn't then i will meet you there in Cleveland. either way i will make the event Labor Day.

Now that has a familiar ring to it! Sorry is taken me so long to reply. Work has kept me very busy. If love to attend the recon ride, but I have to work. My schedule for Labor Day should be open, but I won't know until that weekend. Sarah and I had a great time at the TURD rally and would love to attend this one.

RECON Report: Folks what a great recon mission we had today. 4 rigs turned out for the recon, One Night, Land Elephant, Mike, Kent and Ana. I would say we all had a great time. The Picnic Area is available for us to use though the pavillion is not. We will have 4 picnic table grouped togethere. The Double Lake area has a $6.00 day us fee per vechicle. There is some water in the lake and people where swimming today if some wanted to cool off that option is available. the bathroom are right at the picninc area with easy access. It might be good to bring folding chairs the picnic tables are made of concrete.

Some Items that will be needed that I am hoping we might get someone to commit to bringing.

Paper Plates and Napkins
Flatware (forks and knives)

Hamburger & Hotdog along with the fixins - Ana and Kent Silk

we would like folks to bring their own drinks and a Side Dish or Desert to share with the group.

Double Lake Recation Area:

The Ride will is about 60 km and will take about 1.5 hours. the plan is to gather at the picnic area in the morning and head out on the ride at 10:00 AM. We'll ride around the forest as shown in the attached photo. the plan is to return about 11:30 to Noon and have lunch shortly there after.

If poosible I would like to start to get a count of those the will be attending so we can ensure there is enough food for all. Remember September 2nd is just around the corner now. Mark your calendars and be here.
