Re: For Sale: 2014 Patrol - withdrawn

Read your blog. Very nice repair, I'm not sure I could do that. How do you think the splines got so mangled on such a newish bike? So you are keeping the rig after all now? The TW is going to be a perfect companion to it. Factory gearing is right in the middle of good (but not great) for street, goo...

Re: Very Odd Heinrich Fairing

Wow, that bucket is a really nice set-up. You never go half-way with your builds, that's for sure. I was going to say when I saw your picture that a Battery Tender, especially a BT "Plus" which is a "smart charger" will not work. Same thing for a regular full sized car charger that is "smart". You c...

Re: My number came up today

Good you are okay. I'm sure you will be reflecting on this for awhile. Same as I was taught and ride and also taught my wife a couple Summers ago there are 2 things to remember: 1) ride like you are invisible to everyone. 2) ride knowing everyone is out to kill you. The 2nd is harsh but in reality i...

Re: Very Odd Heinrich Fairing

Stagewex, these bags are beautiful, as is the whole bike! I have never seen those bags in Germany at all. No Claus, they are an American product/invention. They were produced in Connecticut by Stanley Newman, with the aid of his wife. Stanley's vocation and area of expertise was as a plant manager....

Re: Very Odd Heinrich Fairing

The bags are very easy to take off. They are held on by Dzus Fasteners, folks that used to (and maybe still do) supply the means for military aircraft canopy's to clamp safely & securely into place. These are kinda primitive nowadays but this is what they used in WWII & Korea: IMG_4491.JPG You do ha...

That's some picture of Karl Heinrich pounding out some aluminum by hand & hammer. And by his huge smile it really looks like he's having a good time. Jay, that "bottom" will, I guess complete your set minus whatever is missing. Look at the sellers "other items". Not sure he knows what he has with th...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

It was a great weekend doing motorcycle errands. Not really warm but not that cold either. My xr Winter project was finished in the shop but I didn't have anyone to take me up to CT. to get it so took the train, about 20 miles. I could have trailered it or put the MC carrier on the Jeep but I really...

Re: I’ve had it with this forum. - Picture posting issue resolved

John, I want to thank you again but also give credence to my response in your other thread asking for some help but with minor computer/coding qualifications, none of which I possess. I really want to see Chompy the Horse but "clear my cache"? Maybe PM if you can so I am not publicly humiliated. I w...

Re: 2wd lever

Something similar happened to Greg when we did the Ramapo Fall Foliage ride last October. Accidentally shifted into 2WD without knowing it and finally, after 10 miles of fast (for a Ural) riding decided to call it quits as in "something is wrong with my rig". He left us, started home but then pulled...

Ahh, so, so nice. Looks like you can fit another little dual sport in there too.

Congrats.
