Oh yeah? Try this one:

Dzilth-Na-O-Dith-Hle

Its a Navajo word, and town, meaning 'spinning mountain', and/or 'mountain people who move around'...

Just a little trivia...ok...back to your regularly scheduled topics...

Okay, you guys have missed one of the most important questions.... My wife is a sturdy gal. How wide is the seat in the tub? And are all the tubs the same size, model to model? Looking at the New Urals, the cT is my leading choice at this time.

IndigoWolf,all the same ,but the 2017 seat cushions are nicer, also they sell after market seats with extra padding and some extra height in back. my wife isn't here so ill tell you she is 5ft 4"and 180 lbs and loves the seat on my 2016GU, when we come back from a ride she doesn't want to get out,its that comfortable to her. :cheers: :cheers:

I am heading back to the dark side and have Questions #21 and #22 and would appreciate a little input regarding purchasing a new GU.

Over the years I have owned a CJ750 (worked on it almost every time I rode it) and a 2008 GU (still on Ski's home page it was so pretty). Rode lots of 2 wheels. My current ride is a 1992 GSPD.

Biting the bullet next week but would appreciate some feedback.

#21) How does the standard matte finish hold up compared to the clear coat type custom paints?

#22) How does the black drive train hold up? I love the looks. I have wondered if the thickness of the powder coat would have an effect on running temperature (I know, most likely way over thinking).

My first time posting on this forum though I have been reading it for years.

Thanks for any input!
