Re: Want to Buy: Plastic Frame Enduro Seat

Also I want to clarify...the metal seat pan was the ONLY pan available when I ordered my seat in summer of 2010.
The pan failure was in no way Rich Maund's fault.
Russian metallurgy, the fact it was not designed for the purposes I subjected it too and my size were the key issues.

Re: Want to Buy: Plastic Frame Enduro Seat

See my Road Sofa post in my signature for an amazing seat made by Rich Maund. The only problem was the metal pan it was built on and my size. The metal pan has a very pronounced hump in it because it was designed as a 2-Up seat to carry a passenger. Rich Maund built up the rider portion to get it as...

Re: 12 volt blankets

I don't run hand control covers or use electric gloves. I find the Moose Competition Handguards do a decent job of keeping wind off my hands and I run a little "hot blooded" anyway. Stop here, the rest is just babbling... :lol: My usual pair of wet weather/winter gloves are Olympias with nylon gaunt...

Re: 12 volt blankets

+1 on keeping the core warm. I wear a heated Kanetsu Windstopper liner and it keeps me so toasty heated gloves are not needed. But even without being plugged in, it is good for short trips down to 35F. With our extra storage, there is no excuse not to carry an extra layer or two. A windbreaking line...

Re: 2018 Gear Up for Sale

I can say XtremeMachines is a great dealership. Bought my 2010 Ural and another bike from them. Very supportive of the Uraling community and great service.

Re: Ural in a Pick-up

He made it look easy. If by "easy" you mean... - A 15 minute loading and unloading process. Note that the bike is already on the ramps when this video is taken. It takes Ken a while to pull out the ramps, rig up his winch, line the bike up, stop winching, tweak the handlebars to steer it as it gets...

Re: Ural in a Pick-up

As someone who has weighed out the various options that get me a camper/RV AND bringing the Ural along, loading the bike in a pick-up and towing is the LEAST desirable option for me. To do it safely, with capacity to spare for towing, you need a reasonably large truck. Ideally 3/4 ton full-sized. Th...

Re: 12 volt blankets

Being wind-proof is as, or maybe MORE, important than heated gear. Cold weather monkey protocol in this order... Tonneau cover left on to limit air into the sidecar, leave unbuttoned only at the rear so the monkey can stick out. Hack windshield (unless like ME you don't want all that air in YOUR lap...

Re: Ural in a Pick-up

I did some searching and remembered that he is "avion" on this board.
His name is Cris.
You should be able to send him a PM by searching his name.

Turkey Leftovers Ride aka Black Saturday NJ Pines

It's that time of year again :boogie: Where Not Yasgur's farm, Not Old McDonald's farm, but JayBird's farm! Use 1550 W Bay Ave Barnegat Township, New Jersey for GPS directions. When 11/30/19 10:00am Ride starts at Jay's farm. The goal is to get back by sundown. We almost always make it, with time to...

Re: Ural in a Pick-up

Oh and those plastic yellow ramps? They were discontinued due to too many lawsuits, seems they collapse at inopportune times. I'm sure some of that was people overloading them. I think they were rated at around 500lbs each, which is about the weight of the bike-side of things. I think Ken has escape...

Re: Ural in a Pick-up

I've seen Ken load and unload that bike dozens of times. He hauls his bike down to the South Jersey off-road events making a 2 hour trip in about 2.5 hours. I'm not a fan of putting a 750lb bike ABOVE the CoG of a vehicle, plus that platform of his weighs a few hundred pounds by itself. Think 2x10's...
