I've been holding off to make a group thanks for all the congratulations, etc. on the ride. It is nice to be able to share with a forum like this where the participants all appreciate the idiosyncracies of Urals and the fact that pushing one around isn't quite like gliding down the road on a sport-touring bike. Especially true if there is a bump or two, not to mention what happens after you pass a sign that says "sunken grade" and don't slow down sufficiently. :wink:
