Re: See the USA on a RPOC?

Howdy Randy, I think your onto something GOOD and I think your carrying the GU on the trailer is a good plan. If I remember correctly Sergey and I pretty much rebuilt the engine on your 06 GU back in 2013 so it should be good to go for what you have planned. As to the shimmy, I suggest replacing the...

Re: Why a Ural Costs 15K +

Howdy All, I think the first thing that should be said and understood is this, A Ural, a hot rod car, a lifted 6 feet off the ground truck, etc are for 99.9999999999999999999999999% of the people who own them a TOY. They are a WANT, they are not a NEED. A smart person will always make darned sure th...

Re: How Quick is your Ural?

Howdy Charlie, Great to see DaveO's rig on the road again, I can't begin to tell you how much FUN I had riding with DaveO and Jan, back in our Death Valley rambling days. That rig could run hard I couldn't hang with him in the corners but I'd catch him in the straights. I miss DaveO, hell of a rider...

Re: Thank you Ilya, IMWA reworks my rig.

Howdy All, The main reason I started this thread was to thank IMWA for its continuing support but my whining about my worn out knees seems to have struck a cord with you folks. Please know how much I appreciate everyone's well wishes and encouragement, like I said I an not looking forward to this bu...

Re: Thank you Ilya, IMWA reworks my rig.

Mr. Cob, I am getting a 2019 gear-up this week and your post here is all I needed to see to know I did the right thing with this purchase. Thank you Howdy johnR, The one thing I always tried to do when I did my ride reports and gave evaluations of the Ural was to be HONEST. For years I have sung Ur...

Thank you Ilya, IMWA reworks my rig.

Howdy All, Those of you who have followed my drivel over the years may have noticed that over the last few years I have been pretty quiet, havne't been posting the long photo loaded ride reports that I was known for from 2005 until 2014. Two reasons for that, my health when it comes to my knees has ...

Re: Project Steel Belly

Howdy BDSD, Looks good. Thanks for calling me and discussing your project, I am honored that you chose my design to incorporate into your final result. I agree that few Ural's need a skid plate but if your going to install one "ALL" of the ones that are presently commercially available from not only...

Re: Spring in Colorado NOT in Moab

Howdy Dana, Just to let you know I won't be able to make this years gathering. My knees have gotten to the point where if I am going to be able to enjoy any kind of active life I have to get them replaced. I have been fighting with the va to get this done for the last three years, I have finally won...

Re: Deep water crossing mods

Resurrecting this thread so as not to stray off topic in another current thread; I'm still looking to understand why a high exhaust system would be a benefit for water crossing. I could see the benefit if it were a sealed, watertight unit but I don't see any particular advantage if it is multi piec...
