Re: Castrol Actevo X-tra 4T

Though I like conventional Castrol dino oil and also a fan of syn oil. I've never been convinced of the benefits of any brands dino/syn blends. Blends have been around a long time and so far as I know haven't harmed a motor but not convinced it's better than straight dino or straight syn. The dino-...

Re: Yorktown to Columbus and back

At the rally a few asked about the grips I had on Erika. I think I said "grip buddies" but they are actually "grip puppies". IMHO it's made a world of difference by making the grip larger so my hand isn’t so clinched and it provides a cushion from the vibrations. Amazon sells them. http://www.amazo...

Re: Need powder coating or paint match OD Green

If you're worried about paint matching with a camo rig, why not just get a shade of green that is obviously different, patch where it needs it, then do some more patches elsewhere for a "camo" effect? Unfortunately, it's not that easy. It's solid Olive Drab Green, not camo. But thanks anyway. @ Reb...

Thanks Gobium! :cheers:
That would match your Mr T rig as well, right?

Re: 2015 Heindl Ural Royal Enfield Rally & Open House

It was GREAT!!! Over 100 riders came. Some as far as Virginia. I told David that it looked like the UN of motorcycles. People were not asked to bring food, but several people did. Kevin Craig and Sally brought watermelon, cantaloupe, and some great banana bread. Cookies kept appearing as riders arr...

Re: Need powder coating or paint match OD Green

Last I looked on Amazon, there were OD spray cans, but they were around $20 per can. I opted for a quart of "Olive Sage" flat outdoor green at my local hardware store. Has less brown in it than OD, but close enough for me. I've only used it on accessories though. Makes sense to me that you wouldn't...

Re: Need powder coating or paint match OD Green

....I don't need a close match. It's got to be right on. Thanks in advance for your input. Sounds like an oxymoron to me: a perfectionist + a Ural? Strange bedfellows. :sarcasm: Of course, it's a"T", so maybe that's the difference. If it was a Gear Up, like Yakatak's asphalt one, it is just charact...

Need powder coating or paint match OD Green

I'll be getting my hack fender and maybe some other bits repainted this winter and was wondering if anyone knew of a powder coater who can do a good paint match for my OD Green Ural. Or is it feasible to match with a matte paint? Or has anyone matched an OD Green with a rattle can? Anyone know someo...

Re: Central NY Fall Rally - Respond if interested

Depends on a lot of things but I'd like to join you. MId and Western NY not only has some of the nicest scenery and rolling hills, but also some of the best pavement I've ridden on. It's a real treat.
