Re: Chattahoochee National Forest Closures

We’ve had the Drainbows invade us several times in Central Orygun. My condolences. To their credit, they did leave the forest in impecable shape via amazingly thorough clean-up crews. That's encouraging. I spend a lot of time in the National Forest and would hate to see it requiring a long time to ...

Chattahoochee National Forest Closures

Anyone planning a holiday forest service ride in the southern portion of this forest take note that there are many roads closed due to a week long (7/2 - 7/7 "encampment" by thousands from the Rainbow Family. (Google Rainbow Family Dahlonega for the latest info).

WW 2 Sidecar Rigs

Did the German (or Russian) sidecar rigs used during WW 2 have reverse and/or two wheel drive?

Re: Help! Drive train noise.

OK - I CAN rotate the rear wheel about a couple of inches in either direction before it comes tight. I think that is freeplay in the gearbox. Is that normal or is it too much? The OP found a broken u-joint before his question about free play was answered. I have the same question: with the gearbox ...

Re: Duro 307 Recommended Tire Pressure

They finally bothered to actually read the sidewall. :lol: To my knowledge tire manufacturers usually indicate the maximum pressure (and weight) the tire is designed to carry, leaving the recommended pressure up to the user(Ural) to indicate for the end user (us), depending on the tire's applicatio...

Headlight Cut-Off Switch

Most of my more modern motorcycles turn off the headlights when depressing the start button. As we know the Ural does not. Anyone have a suggestion for an easy way to manually switch off the headlight during cranking and perhaps off-road too ?

If find it easier to read the level, and...
