Re: Sarabelle training & ride video

:clap: Wow, well done video Ghengiz! Now, this is for Sarabelle - start teaching Gheniz to wear his helmet :sarcasm: (LOL). Not wanting to start a "Helmet" debate! I live in a state where they are not required, I chose to wear one but that is MY decision. Looking forward to seeing more videos of you...

Re: Sidecar Set-Up

Lean In/Out.. I've got an app for that! I use "Angle Pro" a free app downloaded to my smart phone and check it on a level floor holding my smartphone against the pusher disc. Set mine at 2 degrees lean out, before it was set at over 1 degree lean in! Tracks good now.

Re: Southern Oregon Coast

Nice photos and liked the accent on beer... We spend a week in our timeshare at Rockaway Beach every year and drive south to check out whats happening in Tillamook and drive the 3 Capes route. Good beer stop in Pacific City!

Bad planning on...

Re: Keeping sidecar trunk and passenger compartment Dry

I installed the 2016 and newer sidecar trunk lid weather seal on my 2014 GU, works great.. But then I live in Arizona near Phoenix so what do I know about rain (do travel to central Oregon in the summer)! Also have a little credibility having lived years in the Tacoma WA. area. :old: Santa :old:

Re: New Owner just bought a 2018 Gear Up

Greetings and welcome to the forum. My 2014 URAL purchased from a private party was set up a couple times by the dealer in Scottsdale (they have a really good tech). I bought it with about 1600K but it still pulled to the right as setup. Every one of the sidecar rigs I have owned - see rigs in my si...

Re: Swiss Army Pistol Fits In Russian Tank Box!

My solution posted a year or so back, weapon rides on the foam in its cutout, covered with another foam piece. Modified the lock (converted to a magnet) for fast access no key needed in case the weapon needs to appear quickly (hope it never does) The door stays shut snugly! Weapon does not stay with...

Re: Mounting hardware for Dnepr sidecar

Skillet, I completely agree with "rivers". I have not used Claud Stanley (just heard good things about his work) but my first sidecar rig was built by Jay at DMC, an R100S with Sputnik hack, loved the rig and Jay's work and design is super. I just looked at his web page and he has a mount for BMW tw...

Re: 2018 gear up

Welcome, I live in Sun City and use the Ural Dealer "Go AZ" in Scottsdale. The Ural tech there, Charlie, is very good and their prices for farkles seems to be close to anyone else. I bought several things including my 2/3 bench seat from them, plus when it makes sense, I believe in supporting local ...

Re: Senior and Disability Therapy Riding

Welcome from a "geriatric" 76 year old with nephropathy causing balance issues. I love riding my 2014 Gear Up and having previous two sidecar rigs never used ballast in the hack, (even practice flying the chair so I know how to react if it happens by my error) other than when my bride is with me.

Re: Non-Ethanol Blended Gas

Thanks to all for the information! I will be using "Clear Gas" while in Central Oregon, when we return to Arizona in the fall it will be back to ethanol since I have not found a station in the Phoenix area (west valley) that has the good stuff on tap. Bummer!

Non-Ethanol Blended Gas

Has anyone used clear or non-ethanol blended gas. Any advantage? They pump it (91 octane) at a couple stations in La Pine, OR. A bit more expensive so wondered if there was in pro or cons to using it in my 2014 F.I. Gear Up.
