Re: Saying good by to Brian Crean

I just read this. (10/11/20) Brian was a good man. Saw him at few events over the years. We had a few laughs and enjoyed talking Urals and life. Godspeed Brian. R.I.P.

Ural sighting and conversation

Pull into a hole in the wall diner in Deland, Fl. And what do I see? A new Ural Gear-Up in tan. Beautiful! The owner comes out of the Diner and I struck up a conversation. He didn’t know about this forum so I gave him the lowdown. He got the Ural on a trade with a vintage Indian for an airplane. Rea...

Re: Sidecar Tubs & Frames

Yep! This is the guy I visited out in Largo,Fl. Way back in like 2010. Look up the thread here On S.S. by typing “Cold war trophies” The guy got banned here. The thread is like five pages long if you got the time to read. Personally I would be very cautious in dealing with him. I wouldn’t pay for no...

Hand grips?

Thinking of getting new hand grips for my 2010 Gear Up. Would like something fatter than the stock ones which I think are IMO cheap. What diameter would fit and what would be a good recommendation? Thanks!

I refuse to answer about the state of my Ural on the grounds it may jinx me... :roll: I ride early in the a.m., it’s usually semi cool out. I head out to back country roads before the downtown city traffic picks up. I average 100 to 150 miles and try to be back home between 10:30-11:00 a.m. as by th...

Re: Oil filter upgrade installed on my 2010 Gear Up

Today I went on a 150 mile ride to see if the new system was fine. All seems OK! :clap:
My MPG was a little poor than usual but I did run her harder than most times.
