Rich Maund » I'm bringing a assortment of bike stuff to sell swap meet style.
I was wondering if there was a swap-meet component to this rally, 'cause I've got a few odds and ends to offer. I guess this answers that question.

Anyway I have been lurking here for some time and purchased the Ural largely due to a lot of the things I read on this forum. I live just south of Winston-Salem and would like to come down, bring my wife and dog, and look around sometime Saturday, hopefully meet some Ural drivers, look at other peoples rigs, and learn a few things. We are looking forward to it if you will have us.

Thank you and take care.
Cool, and I think I know you! Think I met your wife in a place that would not be allowed under current NC law...(if you know Bluemoon Cycles you know what I am talking about and its just a joke, get over it) See you all at CRAP! Eclectic does not even come close to describing this group. Some many square pegs, so many round holes and we all ride Urals! For those heading north here is my route, (that is my paper GPS since my real one just says turn around and head to the slab all the time)

leaving at o dark thirty in the AM, about 360 miles (just like harryball, which makes sense since he lives 30 miles north - which I imagine makes our routes decidedly different!). Vast majority of the ride is backroads in GA, 80 or so miles of slab from Augusta to Columbia then pretty much US1 (and its by passes) in NC and SC. Harryball, what's your route and timeline?

Getting ready to leave. Heading to Asheboro to spend the night with the grandson. Started out 39 this morning, with a little sleet and snow. Blackberry winter! 44 right now, sun and clouds, with occasional drizzles. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

I packed ingredients to make 2 dozen breakfast sandwiches Saturday morning. Some can have extra cheese. ;-)

I'll pack mine. 22 cal pellets! They'll smash through a metal can! Very accurate.

Thanks Rich. Looking at a ride and shoot as part of the games. Only thing they will have to puncture are balloons at about 20 feet from a moving Ural. The accuracy may come in handy.

I'll bring the smaller .177 pellet rifle then. .22's are overkill on balloons.

BTW folks. Dug deep into my collection of Ural stuff. I have a box full of Ural factory engine building tools like dealers in the 90's got. I believe it's 45 of the 50 factory tools from their catalog. The missing stuff is minor. Like ring compressors. All wrapped in cosmolene paper. $200 for the set. These tools were used to help build the first Ural LSR bike back in the 90's. The bike that burned in the warehouse fire. So they have some history to them! First come, first served when I arrive at the rally for them! Got a bucket with turn signals, a ahooogah horn and even a advance unit for a points distributer. Make me offers on the small stuff! I have taxes coming due. Must sell some stuff!

For all those riding in the morning, the weather front here seems to be moving out. Sun is shining and temps are in the 60's. Waiting for Scott to roll in and then we will be up there around 1100 hours on Friday. Will monitor this site if anyone runs into trouble.

I packed the .177 and a can of pellets. It's lightweight and piston spring powered. Had bright solar powered sights.

See y'all tomorrow! All I have left to pack is some clothes!
