Re: Negative, Ghost Rider. The pattern is full.

NO WAY! HaHa, I'm usually especially suspicious of any *re-makes (which always suck) or "Part II's" but that looks pretty darn good. Who cares if it's the same formula, the first one worked well. Damn, he still has that bike. Must have put some Stabil or Seafoam in it's tank? * ex: "Longest Yard", "...

3.5 hours of footage edited down to 4 minutes and 10 seconds... the way it should be.
Thank you.

Re: Uhaul Auto Transporter for Ural ? Thoughts ?

Ahh, I see. If you are going to drop-off and coming back to NYC to continue to pack stuff you are more than welcome to use my Kendon trailer, straps and ramps just to get it to PA. It really is the perfect trailer for a Ural. I tow with my 6cyl. Wrangler. It's already in my driveway and other than g...

Re: Uhaul Auto Transporter for Ural ? Thoughts ?

Seems fine but U-Haul has much smaller trailers that folks have utilized before.
Is that your only option because thats all the U-Haul place has at the moment?

Where are you moving it from and too? You are someplace in NYC?

Re: Did you ride today?

Saturday. Last weekend was the mid-Summer Ramapo 500 Classic. Something I was looking forward to since other than commuting into work I really have lost interest in road trips or big pavement gatherings on 2 or 3 wheels. Off-Road seems to be my new thing. Despite that 500 miles of scenic routes on o...

Re: new ural owner

Welcome Luap. I also have a 2007 (mine is a Patrol model) and it's a very good year for this brand. One of the most meaningful mods I did other than comfort (handlebar risers/seat/tires/etc) was the addition of Sean's Steering Damper just a couple years ago. It really changed the feel and handling o...

Re: 2WD on pavement..... oppps...

I had installed a new speedometer before starting to ride. It said 70 km... so that's about 43 miles with the drive ingaged. Pluse the highest speed was about 35 mph. 35mph, no wonder you really didn't feel a difference or at least that much of one. That sounds like you will be fine/no big deal. I ...

Re: Why a Ural Costs 15K +

I paid $10K for my Patrol new out-the-door 12 years ago. That included tax and plates.
There is definitely more than 5K in upgrades in all that time (not that they are all that great!). Plus inflation/deflation/dollar value, etc.

I'd sure like to be paying under $2 bucks for a gallon of gas again.

Fossil oil is around 250-500 million years old, so what's another 10 years? <G>

Re: New Ural pulls to right, tried everything, now what?

The suggestions related to tire pressure or the sidecar wheel brake needing adjustment... that's the way the beast rides. It's invisible to my feel now after 12 years but yeah, give my old girl throttle and it pulls slightly to the right. No throttle and it'll straighten or for a moment pull to the ...

Re: Am I just a cheap a$$?

What is the labor charge in your area? It's about $110 per hour at my Yamaha dealer and $140 at the local Harley dealer. And that's in the NYC metropolitan area which I'd expect to be the highest or at least among the highest in the country. No matter what the hourly charge is... that seems like a l...

Re: 2WD on pavement..... oppps...

We have all done that and pretty sure you'll be fine from your description. You didn't say how far or how fast you were going over the 2 day period that you had 2WD engaged. Surprised you didn't notice the very different performance in your rig especially making any type of a turn. I was on a ride w...
