Re: Hwy 1 question

I always find a trip more fun and relaxing when I dont preplan my stops. Takes the pressure out of just HAVING to get somewhere. Also allows you to take side trips or stop longer if you discover something interesting.

I currently have a 2003 Speedmaster. I have also owned 2004 Sprint RS, 2002 Trophy and a 2000 Spirnt RS. All were solid bikes that rarely if ever saw the inside of the dealer for other than scheduled maintenance.

The new Trumpets are excellent bikes.

Russian Urals

This is a link to a guy I know who is riding around the world. Yes, I know its another Adventure Rider link, but this guy is not a Uralist or side car guy. However a lot of photos of Cusomized Urals (or at least what appear to be Urals) show up in his pics. I thought you might enjoy. Yankee Dog http...
