First test ride after refit ( Moved from Ride Reports )

Normally with every motorcycle I’ve owned in the past I treat it like my baby, making sure to be gentle, keeping it clean, gawd forbid I scratch it. With my Ural, I don’t know seems like the opposite, “ I wonder what abuse I can put this bike through today?” I do have a question I think I know the...

2011 Gear-up Refit progress after 60 days

On January 22 of this year, after years and years of playing with the idea, I finally rejoined the Ural community as an owner. After just a little over two months and a lot of input from members on this page and a few others, my 2011 GU has come a long long way. I just picked up the rig this afterno...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Mostly sat around hoping wishing and waiting for the shop to finish with the tuneup and putting on the new pipes :-/

Re: Rode a 2019 - impression

Oh yes I totally understand and if I could have justified the price of a new fuel injected model, I probably would have went for it, I just have way to many hobbies to put all my eggs in one basket or sidecar that is :-P

Re: 2011 gear up stock exhaust and 2 gallon liquid container for sale

Water can SOLD

The pipes are still for sale, but fair warning when I was mailing the water can, I got the price for shipping the pipes and that will probably be close to 100 bucks or more just for the shipping. So if anyone is able to pick up locally that would probably be the best bet.

Re: Rode a 2019 - impression

Yep that’s kind of what I figured, and considering the price difference from what I paid versus getting one brand new off the showroom floor I think I can live with it :-)

Re: Tell me be honest

2018 M70, Daily rider in the Pacific Northwest, bike sits out all day in the rain, no problem. Basically just scheduled maintenance. Also have a 2007 with carbs, newer is better, end of story. Newer is better, end of story, while talking about a Ural any Ural strikes me as some next level irony :p

Re: Rode a 2019 - impression

The other day I had the opportunity to ride Karl’s 2019 Ural. When I returned from a short ride here’s how the conversation went. Tomcatfixer: “So, did you notice any difference?” Me: “Nope.” Tomcatfixer: “You didn’t think there was any difference?!” Me: “There was no difference because I was ridin...
