Does that website not look sketchy? as far as a web store I mean,...
Agreed, it doesn't pass the Sniff test. That said, I hope it works out for anyone who buys the kit.

Re: 2014 Ram Promaster 1500 travel van for sale

Mods - Have the forum rules been modified so that non-motorcycle related listings are now allowed in the Black Market? If so, I too have some goods that I wouldn't mind posting here.

Re: Time to reassemble MG TF

A fair portion of my mechanical (and certainly electrical) apprenticeship was served when I owned two British Leyland-era MGBs. They can be reliable cars -- I proved this -- if the correct bits are attended to in the correct manner. E.g., adding a relay array for the headlights and horn. A ZDDP addi...

Re: Any FART rally for 2021?

I had toyed with the idea of hosting a small, ride-in day rally, if only to do something with a few Uralistas this year. Something casual, like a bimble through Lancaster Co., or taking a shorter ride to a private guided tour of a local craft brewery (one "welcome beer" and souvenir glass provided t...

Re: Why Must I Log In Each Time Now?

Rarely am I prompted to log in to this site, after having already been signed on for X days. When I am required to sign in again, though, after not having previously signed out manually, I don't recall doing anything -- like running a Window Washer utility -- that would have [correctly] caused my cu...

Re: Ignition Switch Removal ?

Can one of you senior members give me the easy step by step to remove the ignition switch. As it hasn't been mentioned, and if you have this particular style of external lock ring: Use a nail set and gentle hammer taps to loosen or tighten said ring during removal and reinstallation. https://i.ibb....

Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

I was prepared to argue with law enforcement, something I don't recommend doing, if or when I was lit up and subsequently challenged about my motorcycle riding during our state's prior periods of stay-at-home orders. I wasn't ever pulled over, thankfully. Riding is a well-nigh perfect social distanc...

Re: led sidecar fender light

Anyone using the led sidecar fender light from Alpha motors? I like the looks of it and think it would light up the road quite a bit. They have a video of a hack with one and they mention it comes on with the lights, on all the time. A good addition or not? Any comments or thoughts on the subject? ...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Detritus in the fuel tank. Within ~1 year of purchase from new, I had to remove and disassemble the original fuel tank on my 2018 GU. It was being replaced under warranty due to exterior paint delamination. After draining the remaning fuel, and upon removal of the stand pipe assembly, I was surprise...

I grew up in Iowa, so I know you can use a compass and dead reckoning there.

Unfortunately, here in Pennsylvania, it doesn't work so well. :lol:
So true. :D

There's a couple of roads I've not taken when in unfamiliar parts; I reckoned I'd end up dead lost if I did so.

If they believe that I stood up to fart in their general direction, and that their father smelt of elderberries, all the better.
Great reference snuck in there!

Re: Choosing routes for Urals

I've found most people to be pretty patient and reasonable when one does this, but sometimes you get that jerk that is going to tailgate you even though there is nowhere to let him pass. Jerks like that are pretty rare 'round these parts. Granted, I do seek out rural B roads when riding, whether fo...
