Horizons Unlimited rally and ride

Left the 10th for Nakusp, BC for the annual CanWest rally. Averaging 36mpg, which is great considering I have crossed the Cascades twice!

Pictures and complete report when completed. So far I have seen no other Ural, so UDF is alive and well#

Returned home from a 2,032 trip to Canada. Attendance was smaller than last year, but that happens!!
The Gear Up averaged 33 mpg, which I thought very good considering the elevation changes we had.
During an offroad ride up a REALLY long, steep, rocky road it totally lost power. I had a monkey and heavy cargo, so maybe just too overloaded. I restarted twice and same thing. I deduced that it must be overheated and, not wanting to risk a seized piston I opted to turn around and head downhill. The road climbed 7,500 feet in 7 miles. After coming down the hill had no other problems at all. Thoughts from anyone? It is a 2018 Gear Up.
After editing I will post a few photos.
