Re: WTB: Trailer hitch for Patrol or GU

For awhile back Gene at Holopaw was selling a few custom little trailers that were very cool. Goes without saying he probably was selling trailer hitches too. I'd give him a call to see if he has any still lying around. I'm not sure if he was fabricating them or having someone else make them for him...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Finally got a chance to install and finish my poor 2WD linkage that I broke on the New Years Ride. The initial new short-shaft yoke was defective or ever so slightly bent not allowing a proper installation of the new u-joints. For these reasons I order from someone I know and in this case it was Ter...

Re: First Video with DaVinci Resolve (HUG 2019)

Nice. I gotta start attending these low-impact scenic ride gatherings rather than keep breaking my rig in Battle Of The Bulge-type rally's :)

Hey, kudos to your 8 year old daughter for her videography. Nice steady cam work, a real Hitchcock.

Re: Dumb A$$ Attack - Parking Brake

I've ridden away with the old drum type parking brake on many a time. After re-adjusting and making sure the pads had not glazed over they were fine.
I always leave the bike in gear, specifically reverse as a reminder along with the parking brake.

Me too Rich, SS Spokes from Buchanan but I have them all-around. Never have had to tweak or adjust. Have stayed true all these years.

Re: New 2018 Ural Gear Up Owner (Engine Heat Question)

I’m the opposite of you... have had very few water cooled bikes in my time and my first one, a KLR650 overheated in NYC commuter traffic. I was cursing the thermostat & fan Gods. Never had that problem with any air cooled engine. I had to laugh, you don't know what an air cooled bike is doing as it...

Re: Saddam Hussein's Ural?

Last big military order was from Iraq. A few were "liberated" right out of the crate they say by our troops.
Is this one of them... who knows?

Re: Notice from Rich's Cycle Upholstery!

Sad to hear Rich. Your craftsmanship and quality are unsurpassed. Wish you the best with health issues. Wish I could have bought another carpet set from you but this one just won't wear-out no matter what the abuse is. Still the same since 2007 and far superior to the factory OEM stuff: IMG_4412.jpg

Re: Air Hawk

Agree 100%. I was literally leaving the big vendor village at Bruce Russmeyers Destination Daytona dreading the ride home to NY (riding solo BTW). I had seen the Air Hawks before and always considered them "Old Guy A$$-Pads". Well, whatever I perceived or what they are... they really do work amazing...

Re: Idea: January/February Southern Arizona Rally in Quartzsite

I'm interested. Have to check dates vs. work schedule.
Kid is at A.S.U. in Tempe (Phoenix) so have an excuse with the wife to go out and "visit".
Tried last year but was in contract meetings at my job.

There is a similar thread and group from the TW200 Forum as well. Most of them say all Winter.

Re: Oroooga Horn

Somewhat related to the Uber mentality... New Years Eve my daughter is home from college for the month. We have a big family and friends party that she and her friends are attending too. At least till around 10-10:30pm when they decide to go to a club in NYC (about 20 miles away). "Why would you go ...
