Re: Wow! An Electric Ural prototype!!!

From my personal experience, the 30 odd people who rode it today, and the 2 years real world testing, it's a resounding success that doesn't call for a lot of things to be changed. IMO. it's a home run as is. Yes, the initial torque is controlled so one doesn't get sideways starting from a dead sto...

Re: Lap robe: popular?

My Tucano Urbano R117 lap robe arrived yesterday from motostorm.it. Nice piece of kit. I installed it this morning. Haven’t ridden with it yet.

Where would one go about buying such a thing as a lap robe? I'm intrigued.
Tucano Urbano makes one. I read on here that the R117 fits Ural.
I just ordered one last week from motostorm.it. Hasn’t arrived yet.

YMMV, but 60 mph on my speedo = 55 mph on my GPS. 69 mph on my speedo = 60 mph on my GPS.

Re: Ural on the Highway!?!?

Enjoy 2 lanes for scenic, interstates for car/truck when i have a choice. My top speed indicated so far on the speedo is 59 but you all tell me that Urals are optimistic about the indicated speed. :) The electronic speedo on my 2018 M70 is spot on according to my gps. The mechanical Speedo on my 07...

Re: Sidecar carpet set for sale

So the box arrived yesterday while I was at work. When I got home, my wife asked "what did you buy now?". I installed the carpet set today and when I showed my wife the finished product she said "that's all he charged you? That's craftsmanship!" She loved it. I know of no better endorsement. Thanks ...
