Re: Trick to finding reverse?

I feel your pain. No synchro doesn't help either. Very much like an old MGA I owned. I've had a Reverse Shifter almost from the start. It really makes finding reverse easy/easier. My neutral light has not worked in 4-5 years and when it did work it was annoying so really don't care. I shift by feel ...

Re: Tanks alot

That's very cool. I have to look over some pictures on a few of the Dual-Sport sites dedicated to Quartzite and the riding regions around it. The tank training Patton and the U.S. Army did still leaves huge trail and track marks. Pretty amazing to see after so many years.

Re: Experience With Winch

IMG_8390.JPG I've been moving this box around my garage for a few months now. It contains a Kaliber Winch Kit, haven't even opened it yet. I bought/paid for it last March but there was some sort of steel issue that prevented them from shipping it until early June. I think I got it a few days before...

Too funny.

Only "Goldi" came up in the App Store (Apple) which is a job seekers search site.

Re: Rough ride

I have an '07 so the older Russian shocks. Thy have been at the highest setting since the day I picked it up, 4 notches. It's doesn't handle suspension-wise like any other bike I own older or newer. You have more modern shocks on your 2013 but it is set-up light years behind a BMW GS and it's suspen...

Re: Newbie: should I be using the parking brake?

Yes, I use the parking brake. But only with the bike in gear (1st or reverse) when actually parking/leaving the rig. Would I park the bike in gear (1st or reverse) only? Sure. Would I park the bike with the parking brake only? Never. I wouldn't for my Jeep either (6 speed manual). Pretty typical if ...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Not to distract from the important garage debate (I've got a two-car garage, one slot dedicated to my bikes) but here's what I did to my Ural today: mounted straps for my dog's harness. Now to continue convincing her that the sidecar isn't some diabolical trap. https://i.imgur.com/y9o8T33.jpg HaHa,...

Re: 2010 Ural Solo - $4999

Looks nice. Spendy though for an 8-9 year old bike with... "O" miles?
Unfortunately they don't get more valuable over time.

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Didn't have a lot of time or Sunlight left after getting home from work today. But got in one last ride on the Patrol to... nowhere, one of the best places to ride to sometimes.
Goodbye to the Summer of 2018.

Re: Semi-Emergency repairs

You are very lucky. Not just to find an all-around helpful shop but these things don't do well without oil.

Re: Not much of a mod, but it's my first and it makes me happy.

Neither of those horns no matter how loud or unique they sound is going to help you when running out of gas.

Nice mod. I think I have one of those tucked away someplace too.
