I Need to Learn to Like Gin

I hate Gin. I find it abhorrent in every way. But after seeing this at my local liquor store, I might have to give it a try: 1006161903b (2).jpg 1006161903a (1).jpg 1006161903 (1).jpg I was told the bike is a Royal Enfield, but I don't know what the hack is. Anyway, it is beautifully done and I thou...

Re: Ural for the average guy???

Sport Rider, I am an average guy, at least in terms of mechanical ability. With the exception of replacing U-Joints on the shafts and tires on the rims, I've done all my own maintenance. Fluid changes, carb balancing, valve clearance, air filter cleaning, etc. etc. etc. None of it is that hard. Base...

Re: Zundapp- great photos (and MG-34)

If I ever had more money than I knew what to do with, I would try to buy a Zundapp.

What a good looking machine.

Re: SOUR 2016 Ride Report

I'm so sorry we missed you. I'm sure it must be frustrating to go that far and miss the party.

I'm interested to hear about you 1,500 mile ride. Other than a flat, how did that go for you?

Re: hell ride challenge

You are tougher than me. I hate riding in that kind of heat.

Great info on engine temps. I always get nervous idling in hot weather, afraid of the overheat. From what you say, sounds like it isn't an issue.

Re: SOUR 2016 Ride Report

Here's a great shot of our Ride Boss, Trapper. This is a great little Ural Dog. He rode in Mike's jacket the entire time and was super content in there.

Great job, Trapper.

SOUR 2016 Ride Report

So, SOUR 2016 happened, and it was good. I would call it an intimate gathering of Urals enthusiasts, with 3 rigs and 5 riders, but still, a good time was had by all. My wife, Laura, and I arrived on Sunday afternoon. We rented a cabin that turned out to be pretty nice. There were no riders there at ...

Re: 2016 SOUR attendee list

No, it was quite good, really. Just small with only a few bikes. I've been collecting my photos and will do a ride report soon.

Re: Rites of Passage aka what'd you get burned by?

Did that. Didn't have to call for a tow, but I was close to having to push it a block or so home. My big Dumbsh*%t move was leaving the parking brake on. I could ride pretty will, but it wouldn't hold any speed in 4th and lacked power in third. Pulled into a rest area, endured withering glares from ...

Re: 2016 SOUR attendee list

Cool. I'm also looking forward to the hot springs at the camp site and on the rides!
