Re: GROPE is back!

We're gonna go ahead and give it a shot, unless all hell breaks loose... posted this to the club FB page. Yes, I actually log in there, monthly, may be. What will be different at the rally? We are not going to do door prizes this year, save them for next year. Think about it, it's just not a good id...

Is this how they sell 'em in Japan?



Turn on the subtitles and have them translate into English. Makes it more better (funnier). Probably hilarious in any language.

Re: R18 pre order list

I preordered a Beemer once. Think I've had 7, notice anything missing from my sig? Is one nice looking Ural Retro though. They sell it with a sidecar I might get BMW 8. Would make my wife happy if I bought something besides a Ural. Notice that Ilya? BMW sees a market for it. Naw, they know nothing o...

Re: 2020 Ural Update

If I wanted an appliance, would get a Honda, if I wanted image would get another Harley, if I wanted something that would end up pi$$ing me off so bad I would want to injure people, would get a BMW, but I want an OEM s...

Re: Atlanta Ride For Kids Postponed

Wondering the same thing about the Ride for Kids locally. That was supposed to happen in August but was wondering if they would cancel it. As much as the kids love it I wasn't sure if they would take the risk. Would really miss it. :? https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49766161161_df6d7c64d4_z.jpg...

Atlanta Ride For Kids Postponed

Until August...Glad they did, those kids are sick already, no need exposing them to anything else. Lot's of Urals show up for the Atlanta ride, see you all in August if we don't see you at GROPE.

Re: Mountain Rides

Not being a smart a$$, but have been on sidecars since 1996...have a wee bit of experience on this subject. Um, first don't over heat one's brakes for starters... 3rd and 2nd gear are your friend. Use brakes sparingly so they are there when you need them. Going slow and being in the way is way bette...

Re: Blue - Gray Rally postponed till August

Going to postpone the BGR until August 13-16. More details as we get closer. Good news is that this only affects about 10 people :lol: Do I ever know how you feel. Have a rally, for over 25 years in a wonderful location for Urals and can't get anyone to come. Even have a Highlands Festival just dow...

Re: CRAP XIV HEAD COUNT

Talked to the campground owner for our rally, he is currently shutdown, effective 5 days ago. We just hope it will be open by June! Macon is supposed to be in the middle of the Cherry Blossom festival now, cancelled. Place is a ghost town. Man this sucks. Oh well, stay well!
