Re: Has gobium met his match? part dux

Van is still active on ADV Rider, as Gobium. That said, a post review reveals that all of the institutional memory is here, on Soviet Steeds That's good, IMO. I like this site as a respite from the attitudes on ADV Rider. There's no comparison, really. There is a new member here who posts as dokaB. ...

Re: 2018: Brochure, etc.

And, at the moment, it seems that just the cT and the Gear Up will be available in 2019. Perhaps the company will do something, in some form, to fill the void that the M70 leaves behind. This might include a spate of special edition rigs, or a raft of engineering improvements similar to the big push...

Re: Berks Ural Gathering - BUG Nov 4 Pennsylvania

I'll watch this sub-forum. If there's another BUG in 2018, I'd be interested in attending. Thanks.

2018: Brochure, etc.

The 2018 brochure has just been posted to the IMZ-Ural website. https://www.imz-ural.com/2018-brochure/ I've sent several messages to Madina, and then to the general e-mail address, asking for any brochures and/or stickers that they'd be willing to send me. She initially agreed to do so, and then we...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

I retain the rubber mat Ural provided for this very reason as I once had a flashlight vibrate itself to death, irreparably so . Mm. A rubber mat wasn't included with my new rig. I'll have to improvise. Thanks for the insight. FWIW, I am impressed with the Ural's smoothness. Coming from a thumper as...

I added a stocked, waterproof First Aid case to the tank box. https://s18.postimg.org/kr0urz209/Kit_1.jpg Perfect fit. https://s18.postimg.org/qryjp3ecp/Kit_2.jpg Plenty of room for stuffing bandages, etc. therein. https://s18.postimg.org/nl405ibx5/Kit_4.jpg https://s18.postimg.org/9rfngjbmx/Kit_3.j...

Re: Guest helmet?

Na dude, helmets are not a one-size-fits-all. You either have/buy your own gear or you don't ride with me. I won't be responsible if we go down and you were wearing a wrongly sized helmet and it comes off. https://youtu.be/7FJBMsw4ARM I agree. Liability exposure is something we ignore at our [finan...

Re: Lookee what I found

I'm curious why an RAF squadron would have a patch with Cyrillic writing? The 527th was/is an active USAF unit. We were just [technically] billetted on RAF land. With the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, and the attendant effect on and reordering of the mission of USAFE*, the base did in fact reve...

Lookee what I found

My NOS 527th Aggressor Squadron patches and sticker, circa 1988. Haven't seen them since I was in uniform. They were given to me by a Falcon driver with whom I was acquainted. https://s18.postimg.org/l7g3e7t6h/527th.jpg I wish the sticker had Cyrillic lettering as the patch does. The former would lo...

So now where is the picture of you on the Ural, taking a picture of a phone on the Ural that has a picture of a Ural on it?
I think I need a nap after deciphering that one.
