What did you do ON your Ural today?

Post by Manscout » Wed Feb 01, 2017 10:45 am

This was talked about at some point to differentiate between ON your Ural or TO your Ural. I thought I'd just go ahead and do it. I'll start it off with what I did on my Ural today.

Since we got another 8" of snow, I rode it to work again! Nothing better than seeing peoples faces when I drive in this stuff. :lol: My favorite are the people that are pumping their fists as though they are cheering me on.

Nothing with a Ural, I have a Dnepr. I rode it to the little country store about five miles from my house and back.

Yeah, he's an 11 year old rescue dog. Best $10 I've spent in a long time.

We all would get bored at 72.

Wait a moment. I am almost 72!

Went up to the Sierras to enjoy the beautiful winter we're having in CA this year. Got my brand new Ambassador out in the dirt. Even splashed through a few puddles to give the missus a thrill.

Haha! 65-70deg. Absolutely perfect riding weather. California taxes and gun laws suck. California weather does not.
