Re: Thank you to those who help others on this site

As a bonafide Mr. Ten Thumbs, this site and Billy G’s myural site have been invaluable since buying my first Ural in April 2004.

Re: Don't be that a$$hole!

You haven’t lived until a gyppo logger (slang for mom and pop outfit) starts sloughing ponderosa pine quarters off his piled high but not secured load. Good times.

Re: ME/NH Fall Camp at Moosehead Lake, Maine

Thanks for sharing; I always enjoy your tales.

I think the bemused German Shepherd in the hack pic just edges the 25F pic. Both made me smile.

Looks like it will be a while before any border crossings take place but thanks for the offer. Hopefully in the future.

You can almost see Iceland. Congrats on the rig.

Re: N. Georgia Mountains Suches Two Wheels Only

I’ll go for the obvious quip: were you required to fly the chair at all times to comply with the TWO standard? And that BBQ meal looked delicious. Cool pics, thanks for sharing. Riding in the SE is on my list, even if it’s way more hot, humid, and buggy than what I am used to being on the east (dry)...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Pulled the final drive (FD) and lubed the FD splines and the 2WD spline for sidecar. Swapped spare and pusher; plan to put new rubber on spare. Running Duro knobbies on all wheels.

Re: My first Ural?

Just me, but I would never buy a low-mileage/kilometer Ural. You want one that’s been used enough that any problems or manufacturing flaws will have revealed themselves and been addressed under warranty.

YMMV, but I stick to new or used rigs with at least 5,000 and preferably 10,000 klicks.

Re: to trade in? or, not to trade in?

How many klicks do you ride a year? Taking my shoes off it appears to be around 3,666 (11,000/3). Buying a 2020/21 is a lot of rubles for a rig that gets 3,666 klicks a year. My GU is a 2012 so I do understand the calling of EFI and disc brakes on all three corners. Still, having a well-sorted rig t...

My favorite white lie was bikes for sale in Western Oregon that had in the descriptor “...never ridden in the rain.” :roll:
