What do those thread titles really mean???

Post by Snakeoil » Mon Jan 11, 2021 8:20 pm

I suspect this post is a result of being fresh out of winter therapy projects and COVID restrictions making for limited extra-curricular activities. But even when things were "normal" I would often chuckle to myself when reading the newest post titles/subjects as they appeared from time to time.

So, since I'm a bit bored, I thought I'd use a few of those to provide a feeble attempt at humorous first responses to the various titles. All of these were found here on the site. No disrespect to the OP posting these is intended in any way.

What did you do ON your Ural today? – Nothing I’m willing to admit in public
What did you do TO your Ural today? – See above.
2021 Limited Edition teaser – I thought this was a motorcycle forum??
True cost of upgrading a Ural to a GEO – Never would have thought that was an upgrade. But answer to your question, a lifetime of ridicule.
Dnepr MT11, what are the problems – with the rig or someone who would buy an MT11?
New Sidecar Girl – How does your old sidecar girl feel about this?
Considering a new Ural, tell me about durability – You need to be tougher than nails and not someone who easily cries.
Lurker – PERVERT!!
Loose Bolts – Loose Nuts, whatcha doin’ tonight??
2015 Gear up, major issues – Bragging is frowned upon here.
Low Battery Light – Raise it up.
20 Minutes on the highway and it stops – Spend less time on the highway.
Original piston ring issues – And what makes you think you’re the first??
Power in the sidecar – You won’t sell many T-shirts with that one.
Broke oil dipstick head – Not sure you can really break oil. But don’t be so hard on yourself.
Pops when cold – Warm it up.
Final drive dipstick is not supposed to look like this – Suspect you are not looking at the final drive, DIPSTICK!
So soon old, so late smart – Well said, Tarzan.
I let my Ural sit. Where to start soring it out – Tell your lazy-arsed Ural to get off it’s butt and sort itself out!!
2018 Gear Up dies while on the road – Keep it off the road… Geesh. See guy with highway issues.
Theoretical way of improving cold starting of Electrojet EFI equipped Urals – Wouldn’t you rather have a real way to improve the cold staring of EFI Urals??... again. Geesh.
Found broken spoke – So, you like misplaced it or…. Well, why would you even bother to look for it??
Rig occasionally bogs down after a stop - I’d be more concerned if it did not bog down at EVERY stop.
What spark plugs are best? – The ones that will loan you money.
Headlight out....SOLVED! – Found the switch, didn’t ya?
Hissing sound? – Somebody either does not like you or you’ve sprung a leak. Check your skivvies.

HaHaHa.
There's still plenty of room for additional cranky Ural people, me included.

Glad I could put a smile on your faces. I'm sure there will be more as time passes.

You need to get out your IMZ decoder ring, as the titles are code from our Moscow masters.

The question that I remember the most was " to downshift or not to downshift " or something along those lines. I'm sorry. I did not know that was a question. Nonetheless an option.
