She didn't kill me or ask for a divorce

Post by E.scott » Sun Apr 05, 2015 6:37 pm

So my 2015 Patrol was deliveed at 8pm last night. About one hour before it got here I broke the news to my wife. She just smiled and was as excited as I was when it got here. Took my wife out for a 30 mile drive this morning before meeting family for Easter dinner. By the time we were back she was already giving me a list of all of the trips we were going to take this summer. Oh, and she's already online looking at things I can add to the bike. I guess I could have done worse.....

I think I'm safe.

Great looking Patrol! I like the Patrol colors more than the GearUp colors for 2015!

Have fun adding stuff for trips!

Ya she is a keeper. Mine has a ETA of 4-8 wed. Wife kinda knew I was thinking about getting a new one (had a 2007 Patrol) but when I told her I did it :boogie: you did what? You need that like you need a hole in your head. :sarcasm: and :sarcasm: She kinda calm down but I know she will flare up when it gets here cause me GS Max gets the first ride :lol: so she will have to wait. Enjoy it.

Every stop for Gas to fill the Ural turns into a history lesson for the curious and takes at least 20 minutes. More miles of interesting riding on a Ural no road is avoided unless it is paved.

Thanks for the comments. To those close by I hope to run into you soon. I'm right up by Dodd stadium ball park up on plain hill. I was also happy with the color. Very deep burgundy with lots of "brown". I hadn't seen that specific color but liked it the best in the 2015s for Patrol. I had seen some pictures after I committed thar were more "red" but after having it here it is just what I wanted.

Hopefully will be heading up to finish the registration tomorrow and then I'll just be looking forwards to rides not red tape. We plan on attending the meet at UralNE in early May so if we don't touch base by then hopefully will meet some of you up there then.

We're in Mystic and Stonington a lot of weekends over the summer so if you see a burgundy Ural come and find me.
