Re: Holopaw Ural

Holopaw Ural's trademark antique sat on the concrete at the entrance to Gene's ex sales office (the building near the highway before you reach the
metal building) for many years prior to being hoisted into the tree. It is rumored that beer and possums had something to do with it.

Re: A big thank you!!

K-28's in the 18" size are tough to mount. One of my 2018 CT original 28's at the pusher had a torn in two bead with the wire ends sticking out. Wires were rusty and had to have been a factory induced injury. Luckily the bead didn't slip off the rim. After mounting my first one I could see that happ...

Re: 2021 Daytona Bike Week Sidecar Day

I am not going to sidecar day due to the general lack of interest plus the covid factor. We just past 10 days from our second vaccine shot but are still limiting exposure in crowds. We don't want to become carriers and expose our grand kids and friends. I did go to the Sunshine Chapter of the Antiqu...

Re: I was told by JohnBG, "NEVER w@$# YOUR URAL"!

Everyone thinks JohnG has a Special Edition Raven Patrol, when in fact he has an extremely dirty desert tan Patrol.
That explains why the rig does not have a "tool box" gas tank.

Re: Water Injection Cooling #2

The use of water or water/alcohol to suppress detonation in aircraft engines goes back a long way. It is only used at wide open throttle for a limited time. Your system will inject water any time that vacuum is present at the port. Check with a vacuum guage to see if vacuum exists at the port you ar...
