Re: URAL +GEO LE "D" (as in Delivery) Day

Well bought, Mike.

Re: Pittsburgh Ural closing down

I had heard nothing but good things regarding the Pittsburgh Ural dealer. It's a shame when a place like that has to close their doors. What's unfortunate is that current events don't really allow us to be surprised about it.

Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

But rumors of close to 50 degrees a couple days next week (after another snowstorm tomorrow). Plowable snowfall yesterday, mid-50s tomorrow, more snow forecasted for the weekend. Not sure how it is in NY, but...if you don't like the weather in Pennsylvania, just wait 10 minutes. My record for top-d...

Re: Looking for a water gun to mount on sidecar

I have a ‘18 Gear-Up painted in the Sahara color. Nothing currently remotely militaristic about it. I test drove a 2018 Ural in the Sahara livery. Seeing one in person confirms that it really does have a military-like aesthetic. That's part of its appeal. Yeah, the new neighbor is full of hot air r...

Re: Big Boy Toys - The Real Deal

Whilst attending university football home games, the local army outfit would occasionally bring in a wheeled artillery gun of indeterminate caliber. Every time our team would score, they'd fire off a blank cartridge. If your position on the bleachers was such that you didn't see the towed howitzer p...

Re: Please help me decide what to do with my rig

You've put more than your fair share into that bike.

If your time is worth more than zero, sell it (#3) and move on to greener, non-seized pastures.

Re: El Cheapo Tacho

Don't the newer Urals with the fancy headlight bucket actually come with a Tachometer as part of the electronics & software? Yes, the 2017+ Urals include a tachometer function in the digital display screen of the Acewell speedometers. A bit of mild wiring alchemy is required to activate the feature...
