Re: Choosing routes for Urals

Unfortunately, just going to work or running errands in the city requires me to travel on the Interstate highway. It requires a 15 - 20 mile or so jaunt, but just taking it slow (55-60) doesn't seem to cause issue with other drivers. If I were to take a 2 lane bridge over the Missouri River would re...

Re: For those with an inner Burt Munro...

Modified tanks were great for carrying aircrew personal gear (i.e. golf clubs, liquor bottles, etc.)….

Re: motorcycle transportation

http://www.haulbikes.com/ I second this recommendation. I've had them pick up and deliver sidecar rigs as well as regular motorcycles, and they've always been great. About the only drawback I can think of is that their rigs are HUGE, so if you're on a tight street, you might have to make arrangemen...

Re: FD bolts

Re: FD bolts

I had an issue with FD bolts on my 2016 cT - mine caused by overtightening the bolt. If at all possible, use a torque wrench or use nylock….I managed to pull the bolt out enough that it caused the washer holding the bolt inside the FD housing to come off and make a mess of things.
