Believe me, John wishes you had heard about it too! It got started when Bluemoon packed up their Urals and took them to a gun show. Had +50 folks show interest in coming to the shop and checking them out. We are talking giving names and address interested. Started out as invitation only because that many people would have been tough to take on 4 rigs let alone a Ural free for all. Invitations went out, and nothing. Eventually 4 folks responded that they may come and the event was already set up and cleared by IMWA (so I was told). I found out about it the day I posted it here. Also posted it to my club site and that was about it. Saying that, it went well. They plan on doing this 4 or 5 times a year and they will be better advertised. They've already sold more Urals this year than last when they were a full blown BMW/MV/Steib/(don't bring up ERB please)/Ural/RE dealer and it is only March. The dealer actually likes Urals, the 2WD and cT at least. He doesn't get the Retro though. Being surrounded by antique BMWs that look an awful lot like my beloved Retro all the time may have something to do with that... No one is perfect I guess...
Also discovered that a cT and Retro fit through Bluemoon's showroom doors with less than an inch on each side. Coincidence (doors were there years before he was a Ural dealer), I think not.
and yeah, the Retro wanted to go on the way home! Had to throttle her back going up hill couple of times!
