Had one of those "What are the odds" days today. In our small little New Hampshire town, I just pulled into my sons house after taking his dog for a ride and about 10 minutes later I see someone drive by taking his dog for a ride.

Here in Payson, AZ there are two Urals. 3 about 6 months ago until he went to the dark side on a Spyder. Since the population is around 15,000 we think we have the most per capita in the US. :lol:

I know of 2 others in Northwest Indiana, but never seen in the wild. One guy has a green camo bike and takes his sheppard for rides. Other one is white camo and the father of a former co-worker. 1st time I rode the bike to work everyone was gawking, he walks up "Oh, you bought a Ural?"

2019 Chicago Toy's for Tots parade was 30k+ motorcycles, guy pulled up a few bikes behind me in a Yellow & Black mid-80's Dnepr with full import paperwork. Previous owner shipped it back with him after some travel, but never could get it titled in Illinois. This guy titled it through his summer house in Michigan.
