Re: New!!!Chang Jiang!!!

Well, there is no Retro anymore and IMZ is doing NOTHING to full that gap (that I know of any way), and you all know how I feel about that, so does IMWA. See the HUG videos if one doubts how popular that model was in some markets. Back of the new CJ looks unfinished, tank looks like it came from a 7...

HUG 2018

no one has posted anything about HUG? I'll start: Note: if you only post in Facebook, only FB users will see it, folks like me probably will not (like half of us). The 360˚ videos are best watched full screen. On macs, pull it back a bit to get the fullest view. Windows, I dunno. See something you w...

Re: HUG Rally in Beautiful Holopaw

Official time? That all depends on when you get there. Will be there Thursday afternoon (meaning we hope to get there before dark but never quite make it) and available for whatever chores needed to be done Friday. Riding with Harryball and wife and their new rigs, ensuring they won't get speeding t...

Re: FS: 2006 Road King w/ Ural sidecar.

What have you been smoking? I know it's legal there, but damn, $6K? Would you take $4k for your FLT? That is basically what you are saying his is worth. Sidecar worth at least 2K! I wouldn't and mine has +200K on her! It's actually worth what he is asking, but will probably sell for a lot less just ...

Re: WTB White Ural Retro M70

that bike is long gone. Ural NE does have some Red and Black Retros and a black and some green M70s. White was generally a special order thing. Good luck, Harryball found one, you might too!

Re: Ural ? $1k

I like Dneprs too, sidecar worth the money, however, being this is North American and Dnepr parts are insanely hard to get (or crap) not sure I would want to mess with the bike...saying that, would be a great candidate for a BMW engine conversion...as long as the Dnepr transmission is not all rust.

Re: CL Find: BMW R75WH SIDECAR TUB ORIGINAL!

that missing trunk lid is a major piece of unobtanium.
Also not convinced that is an R75 body, does not say Steib where it should...but could be later war production or made by someone else...

Re: For Rent in LA: 2015 CT - anchor included.

you know, I would add my 2 cents worth about sand bags and all the other "warnings", but since I only have like 25 years and a few hundred thousand miles on sidecars and there are so many experts here that I know have a few years experience and are now experts, and all my advice is basically 180 deg...

Re: CeeCeeBeTrippin : 8000 miles, 3 kids, and 1 mom

In my experience, folks who keep trying to make the Ural better (you know wiz bang fancy ignition systems, screw with the timing incessantly, keep valves too tight. mess with electronics they know little about, that sort of thing) have massive problems, those who ride and do nothing to them no maint...

Re: Fall Annural Rebellious Tour 2018

That 360 video virtual ride was awesome! Thanks! It is a finicky beast, the 360 camera! Failed during the main ride, in perfect weather, but worked great in the rain on the way home following/trying to keep up with Bural on his Bepr... Going to try to run it right in the middle of the field events ...
