Re: Should sidecar wheel be vertical?

To get the sidecar as level as possible side-to-side, I adjusted until the sidecar wheel was vertical. Is this correct? Someone has suggested sidecar wheel should be leaned in. here is my take on this issue, I asked the same question once on the forum and after much hand wringing and worry decided ...

+1 truly a golden boy in the golden age of American dirt track/road racing. the riders of today in both disciplines are great, but IMO don't compare to the old days. R.I.P. Gene :(

Re: Rear wheel not aligned, possible fix?

I've been fighting issues with the bike pulling to the right in spite of all alignment specs being correct. I've noted that the rear wheel point slightly to the right. With a staightedge against the front an rear tire about 6" off the floor, I see a gap at the front of the rear tire of about 3/16"....

Re: Ural as only bike?

at 66 I'm not quite ready to give up the BMW, but likewise I reach for the Ural keys far more often. I think I'd rather get rid of the VW than the Beemer, except the daughter needs the car for college. at 66 you have a way to go before you need the security on the third wheel crutch. I saw the ligh...

Re: Thank you Ilya, IMWA reworks my rig.

And more fun than anything on 4 wheels! My mother at 88 had a knee replacement. Usually that is iffy with the age and mobility going anyway - but she was a walker and was still doing 3 - 5 miles a day at it. She asked what we thought and it was unanimous, go for it. She did, two brothers were able ...

I am trying to do my last minite prep for that, so I'm not sure how much of this I can get done between now and then. I might motor the Ural over to my local dealer and have them t...

Re: Full battery dies in 8 days or less

My 2018 GearUp has about 3300 miles on the original battery. When I started riding in the winter, the battery would be so weak even 48 hours later that it couldn't get the bike started. As I mentioned in my winter gear roundup, I started running a battery tender on the bike just so I could ride to ...
