Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Mod to improve reliability of the lights. - Rear light mod.jpg - The bayonet sockets have hose clamps added to the outsides to grip the bulb bases tightly. Then the bulbs' centre terminals have wires soldered onto them, which go off to wherever (here, the grounding strip via solder tag washers). Th...

Re: Leg Guards

And you can put stickers on them, can't think of any cons unless you prefer metal ones. Have had both metal and plastic and I (oddly) believe the plastic is a little more sturdy. My metal ones got bent up off roading and dinged up bad from rocks where the plastic ones are thicker but have a little ...

Re: Funny or WTF photo thread

He bought his now-wife a...

Re: Are you tired of your bright color rig?

I call my '07 the Big Red Brick all the time... Red isn't an outlandish color, but it definitely stands out on the street and when pulling into the local cruise nights. I ride with my 7yr old and wanted a bike that stood out in traffic.

Classic. Good Luck with your restoration.
And you did "bring-a-trailer".
BaT started out as just that, selling project cars that needed a trailer. It slowly evolved into a website version on Bonhams Auction talking about vehicle "provenance" and everything is "well bought"

Re: Bring-A-Trialer strikes again...

BaT run about 20% over market just due to the exposure of the website. I've been looking at Gen 4 Alfa Spiders since Gen3 have started to take off in value. There's been a few pop up on BaT and they go for mid teens when you can find clean examples out there for $8-10k

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Rode to work on Friday and bike just felt "off". I haven't been on 3-wheels in a few weeks, riding the Yamaha while I fixed the dent in the sidecar, so I just chalked it up to being back on the Russian Bastard. Half way home from work I noticed the left carb shaking violently while sitting at a ligh...

Re: First sighting

I have a Condo Association where I've been doing yearly roadway construction for 12 years now. Every year there's cicada's flying around with their proximity to the Des Plains River and rich soil. I'm just waiting to see what this years construction is like with the large 17yr hatch. I remember the ...

Re: LED headlight recomendation please

For the 1st year I used a knock-off TruckLite headlight from Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019I0UBLU/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It worked great, but I ended up falling into a Hella E code so I bought an LED bulb for it. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XHD78DQ/r...

Last weekend I let a riding buddy of mine take the rig out for the day and he proceeded to hit a brick wall. Dang! :o He taken the bike out before and been perfectly fine... He rode his KLR over to my house to take his wife out for the day in the sidecar. Leaving my house the dry clutch just grabbe...
