I wonder what color Ural would paint their line of snow blowers. What shade of paint is most frequently seen on our outfits? One possibility is Burgundy Satin, as it's been available since model year 2018.

Humorous to consider.

Just back from a short rip today. After a couple days of rain the roads are clear - no salt. Gotta love global warming.

FWIW, I spray the rig down with Salt Gone after every ride when snowy or wet roads. The bottle on the sidecar step is what I have left after 4 years of use (90% remaining). A little goes a long way and it works phenomenal on salt.

Where do you buy that and how do you apply it?

From what I read it was designed for snowplows etc and some videos show how effective it was in preventing corrosion. I spray my bike with acf50 before winter but I use salt away after my wet winter rides. A little goes a long way and it’s available on Amazon etc. I mix a capful with the quart pump sprayer. I spray it and leave it on after rides. I have been using on my truck and cars too. It says it doesn’t remove w@*/sealant and I’m very meticulous with my vehicle care and I do believe it’s an honest statement.I highly recommend this or a similar product if you ride wet salty roads. At the rate I’m using it a gallon will last 10+ years.

So is it "Salt Gone" or "Saltaway"? The link you posted was for something called Saltaway. Are there two products, or are they labeled differently for different markets?

Sorry, this is the proper link. Both probably very similar but this is exactly what I've had luck with.

40 seemed cool in November and snow was enjoyable in December/January. Now 40 seems warm and although the monkey loves the snow I'm looking forward to spring.
