2019 HUG Rally - Dec 7th 2019 - Holopaw Florida

Post by BigJames » Mon Dec 09, 2019 11:00 pm

That was fun. Rode the '19 Gear Up down and yes, got rained on in Georgia on the way home. 401 miles - 7 hours (repeated both ways) on a Ural, but i digress. We had fun, lots of Urals, kids and dogs. Plenty of food, all that was missing was some of the regulars and a few folks who said they were coming and did not make it. hope all are ok. Here are some videos for those of you who missed out.


This one is 360˚, leave the screen small, looks better, or view on your phone. If you click on the arrow thing in the upper left corner, you can use your "arrow" keys to move the video around. The smaller the screen the better the video...weird, but true. Looks great full screen, until I upload it...



Warning, at one point had to do some self censoring here, you'll know why...

Between dodging Spaghettios and squeezing in bath time I got some photos edited.

I'm dropping web size images here, if you want any in full resolution just shoot me a PM.

I had a blast at HUG!

Gotta love the pics. Looks like everyone had a blast!

Couple pics there with a spare tied up under the car. Whooda thunk? I took mine off because it's way purtier (gotta have priorities, eh) ...

Image

... but it'd be nice to have the spare on the bike. Wonder if anyone's used the stock spare tire mount under the car? Seems to me you'd want to add a reinforcement plate inside for strength.

But ... I digress. Carry on ... <G>

Looks like a lot of fun was had by all, and a good turnout to boot

Great pics!

If I remember correctly the ones I saw there with the spare under the hack were tire only. No rim or anything, just the tire.
