Re: What would you choose?

It is my first rig! I started researching Urals while dating my (now) wife long distance. I registered after I moved here to Minnesota. I did a fair amount of research, read some things about poor regional dealer support, had some financial hardships, and put the idea on hold. I started to get inte...

Re: What would you choose?

My new 2017 GearUp holdover was delivered today, courtesy of Richard from Pittsburgh Ural. They were fantastic to deal with every step of the way. My wife took a few pictures of me talking my 12 year old stepson through all the switches, levers, and pedals on the Ural (I put my gear on before we ro...

Re: Increase Tire Life and Grip with 303 UV Protectant

Re: Teeth look normal??

Would be nice if the shoes could be turned down or filed whatever, until they the same shape and match the actual curvature of the drum. They can be, with adhesive-backed sandpaper. It's called "arcing the shoes" and there are several threads on the subject in this forum. yes, good call T...

Re: Increase Tire Life and Grip with 303 UV Protectant

Why, in the world, would you put any kind of "protectant" on the tread of motorcycle tires? We need all the traction we can get. Ever used Armor-All on motorcycle tires? Did you watch the video? I had the same thought at first. He explains how it works. Basically makes the tire softer, in...
