Another "bokad"...

Post by JohnBG » Tue Oct 03, 2017 4:14 pm

Over on the Soviet Steeds Facebook group "Ural Guy" has gone full bokad, complete with a "F--K YOU URAL" post threatening class action lawsuit against IMWA.

Bring your popcorn and enjoy the show... :lurker: :lurker: :lurker:

What a tool. Good luck with the class action, I doubt he’d get enough riders to join in.

I thought he was interested in getting his rig fixed but the drama and attention appear to be his real goal. He says he has abandoned the Ural now and purchased a Honda Africa Twin or at least that is in process.

I wouldn't count on it. There are many people who are looking for a quick dollar, no work required.

Not the smartest way to negotiate with Ural, diplomacy goes a long way. Being a new rider (3000 km, first year) I know I'm not driving a 2017 Lexus, it's a crude machine. I do sympathize, if you are spending top dollar and you think your getting top quality you're probably in for a surprise . I've enjoyed the Ural so far, I like its crude design and ease to work on but with tons of charm. I treat it like I did the Afghan National Army (ANA), I look at it suspiciously but it pleasantly surprises me most of the time. I'm not asking it to take me to Sturgis for a 10 day 1500 mile blast, that's what my HD is for.

I lurked on here for a year or two before I bought a Ural, I knew what I was buying. To me tinkering is fun, and builds character. That being said the Ural family are some of the best people I have ever met.

I have owned Urals for 11 years but I read everything I could find before I bought. I knew it was a crapshoot before I jumped in. Both of my rigs have had the engine rebuilt by Sergey, to my advantage I think. I firmly believe his engines are better than the factory engines.
I know these bikes are expensive but they are both incredibly tough and incredibly fragile. But compared to a $44,000 Indian rig, it ain't all bad.
Besides, they are a bare canvas. They are just waiting for us to make our own mark on them.
I may not be good, but I'm slow.
