he has a real job too, so that might be eating up his time. He'll get back to you...

Did you guys notice the letter from an old customer writing in to Thank IMZ. He has ridden his Ural for 40 years & driven 500,000km's with it. He said it has been reliable and never failed him. He must have gotten the one they put together right. :lol: :bow:

Bill is still the only one who has wrenched on my 2011 Ural besides me. I have usually contacted him by email. He does have a full time job and does other work on bikes part time.
Still like Charlie Chaplin's 1940 talkie "The Great Dictator"; had to abandon it as the inspiration for the theme of my Ural's paint scheme. People can't seem to tell satire from support. Too much public education.
