Re: Permanently 2/3 disabled

I am waiting impatiently for the three week lead time to complete. Paying for something and having to wait for it has never been something I enjoy, but it should be here in a couple of weeks or so. Um, you DID buy a Ural at one point, didn't you ? You should be used to it. You didn't go through the...

Re: new location... anyone out there?

Jerry !! Long time !! Finally gave up on Galveston, huh ? TURD rallies aren't the same since you're not there to toss rocks on my cabin roof at 0-dark-30 to "see if I'm up". :lol: Actually, work has been a mutha (kind of a good thing, nowadays) that I've missed quite a few rallies, never get to ride...

Re: Permanently 2/3 disabled

Excellent news about Froggy !! I don't know if you're a praying man or even believe in a Deity, but I know your thoughts were on her recovery more than your own. For that matter, your prayers/wishes have been fulfilled. Her recovery certainly lightened the load on your heart and soul, so who knows w...

Re: Taking off reflectors?

And when you bring you bring a car into the dealer, the service writer walks around getting plate number and VIN number, notes any pre-existing body damage, and also looks for the dealer insignia: We sold it=Quick honest service. Service might even be cheap or free. Another dealer sold it=You can h...

Re: Taking off reflectors?

I always try to keep the mindset of staying within the topic of the asked question, although, I, too, do not always succeed. It always slightly irked me when someone would ask a question and get opinions instead of answers. Hypothetical question: "I want to paint my rig pink; what surface preparatio...

Re: White Castle

We have those in the South, they're called Krystals... :wink: Not the same, not the same..... I remember as a kid, after a night of drinking, heading to White Castle to get some "Belly Bombers" as we called them. Seemed odd saying, "I'll have 10 burgers, 9 fries.....and a Coke." An hour later we re...

Re: you don't know sh!t

I've never had a direct confrontation with riders of Harley's. I've had looks and such, nothing normally verbalized. Honda riders, surprisingly, have the most to say, usually negative. One time my wife lost her sunglasses and we stopped at a local Harley dealership to see what they had. It was a Sat...

Re: My First Tat

Dat Yooper- I, too, once owned at Samurai. In 1987 I bought a brand spankin' new Samurai Special Edition; 7 miles on the odo. When I showed my Dad, he called it "The Barbie Dream Jeep" and NEVER called it anything but. :lol: One time while 4-wheeling I got it stuck in some deep, thick Texas mud. Whe...

Re: My First Tat

Whew! I was about to ask if the Willys had just seven slots in the grille. A quick search cleared that up. Much like your wish for a tattoo, I always wanted a jeep. Either the Willys or a TJ sport. Unless there is some significant change in location, it doesn't look like that will happen. Have a go...

My First Tat

My first tattoo was attempted at the ripe old age of 18. I was a highly motivated young Marine fresh out of boot, in town drinking with my buddy. We had drank enough beer to pretty much lose the power of speech when he yelled, "LET'S GET TATTOO'S !!". So off we go, stumbling down Court St. to find t...

Re: Met a Ural hater today

A few years back at a block party in our neighborhood, a group of us guys were standing around drinking and talking. One guy says, "Have you seen that guy riding around on that camo'd motorcycle with sidecar and machine gun on it ? Guy is a lunatic !!" I calmly say, "My wife lives with him." and exc...

Re: Permanently 2/3 disabled

Some people claim that having an online presence affords the writer a sense of being anonymous. This situation proves that theory to be totally wrong. While I have never met Mylash, I have been graced with the ability to read his posts from the day he joined Soviet Steeds. I have read about him movi...

Re: Am I allowed?

Methinks you can't; the wording is actually quite clear: "AS11.46.360 (2) "all-terrain vehicle" means a propelled vehicle that has three or more wheels or two or more tracks or treads, is less than 75 inches in width, has a dry weight of 800 pounds or less, is equipped with low pressure tires or rub...
