Re: Snow Blowers

Most of the Citgo stations in Maine now carry one pump with ethanol free gas. I run this in the snowblower and lawnmower and also in the Ural most of the time and especially on the last rides of the season when I make sure the tank is full with ethanol free and some Seafoam. I have a free phone app ...

rps20191205_153536.jpg rps20191205_153848.jpg Great machine. 5 years old, all hydraulic, no belts, cost $3,000. Just used it and after sitting since last March it started on the first pull of the cord. Does have a plug in electric start, but it starts so easily with the pull cord I've never used it.

I WILL EMAIL OR TEXT PICTURES

I keep getting an error about files being too large to post
There are various free apps that will reduce the size of a photo. I usually pick VGA from the size options offered. The forum will accept that size.

Re: "Ford v Ferrari"

I still think that Grand Prix, 1965, show casing Formula One racing in a time before computer special effects, is the best racing movie ever made.

Re: Am I too Old?

"A fiery horse and the speed of light and a hearty High Ho Silver" at least approximately. Memory is getting old, but not entirely gone. Tonto's buddy.
Read Bill Bryson's (born Des Moines, Iowa, 1951) Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid, a memoir about growing up in the '50's.

Ride it. I have done 4 over 2,000 Mile trips in the last 4 summers including quite a few over 360 Mile days. Drive it sensibly and do the maintenance. I have ridden my cT 15,000 Miles in 4 seasons and it has been absolutely reliable.

Re: Ural ownership opinions

23,500 K on my 2015 cT, new on 6/30/2016. Very reliable. Drive it within design limits. More power definitely came on after 15,000 K.
