Why not?
Time, space and priorities. The latter will make way for any obstacle.
Time, really doesn't exist.
Space, is what you make it.
Priorities, change... :foilhead:

Re: Rode a 2019 - impression

No doubt, the 2019 and up are a different ball game. In the next few weeks, I'll be upgrading my 2018 M70 with the Keihin 2nd generation EFI kit. Rather expensive at $2k, but a lot cheaper than a new rig. and the only way to get that EFI system on an M70. If Christine, my beautiful but evil M70, ha...

Mine is a Burgundy 2020. Waiting to pick it up.
WTF? Looks just like my '19! A man of discriminating taste's I say!
Remember, the speedo is fairly accurate. You'll understand why that is important, after you ride her...

That is the software I use for my 360 degree videos (on my macs). That was fun.

Re: Question about 2015 FI

To understand my feelings on this, just look for my M70 posts (her name was Christine, that should be a hint)...my preferences are 2013 or earlier or 2019 or later. Yes, as a matter of fact I do have both...and did have one in the excluded years...

Re: BMW R9T with Ural Tub

I would like to know who the professional installed is. Like the dealer you buy a Ural from, makes all the difference in the world. And, come to think of it, I acquired a new Gear Up in May, the MSRP was not that much and I didn't pay MSRP...one wheel drive a lot less... Someone is blowing smoke met...

2019 HUG Rally - Dec 7th 2019 - Holopaw Florida

That was fun. Rode the '19 Gear Up down and yes, got rained on in Georgia on the way home. 401 miles - 7 hours (repeated both ways) on a Ural, but i digress. We had fun, lots of Urals, kids and dogs. Plenty of food, all that was missing was some of the regulars and a few folks who said they were com...

Re: 2019 Fuel Injection Hiccups Cold

In a way good to know. I assume fairly warm temps (50+) in that area? (just looked, 69, yee hah) Pretty much my experience in warmer temps (by our standards pretty hot) then as well. Winter trips except the once where it had been started and warmed up (a number of hours latter when I left) so warmu...
