Congratulations. As for maintenance....these bikes are easy to work on and something your son and nephew could pick up easy. They would thank you years from now for the experience too.
Miles aka Kilometers

Uralless for 3 years and regretting it the last 2 years I have owned a Doberman. Thinking of coming back rather than hacking the Harley...there is just something about Urals, this forum, and the 2WD I used infrequently while camping.....

Formerly owned 2007 GU, 2014 Patrol, and 2016 GU

Newbie also from NC. Coastal southeastern. Attempted to deal with the dealer in Charlotte. Couldn't get any interest from them. Ended up ar Blue Moon Cycle. I would like to build a good relationship with them though. Went online to request a set of valve cover gaskets and was never contacted.
