Re: My Gobi Swag

Re: VASKA vs. WASR 10, thoughts?

I’ve had a WASR for many years and love it. It’s a tank, but for me still accurate and a ton of fun to shoot. I’ve ran about 5,000 rounds thru it and the fun just never seems to wear off. I have the folding stock version, bought a wood pistol grip to match the rest of the gun and varnished it in Rus...

Smart Helmets

I’ve been looking into Smart Helmets lately, primarily to find a helmet with an integrated heads up display. Anyone here have any experience with these?

Re: Sean's R3W Steering Damper kits ready to ship

Mr W, I had the stock damper on my 2014 for a few months riding, not really paying much attention to the tire slap over bumps, what not. What made me look into getting Sean’s damper was riding it daily 40 miles to the Pentagon and back, not the bumps but more constantly having to hold tight on the h...

Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

Mr W, just thought it would be cool to see if you’re ever in the area!

Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

Mr W,

If you’re ever around Bedford/Hitchins I used to live near there in the village of Arlesey, when I was stationed there in the USAF. Would be great to see a “Ural’s Eye” video of what it looks like now!
