"New Posts" is the no-brainer default when you sign in. Then decide what's interesting to you or an on-going conversation that you may have participated in, even if not quoted.

Re: Canine Co-pilots

Thank you. The Parol is still a fun favorite but has moved into the category of just being one of my motorcycles nowadays. The combination of a dog and a sidecar rig is hard to explain to anyone without. Kids, wives, girlfriends, buddies... all great but it's a very, very unique situation with a dog.

Re: 2015 Gear Up nightmare

"Let this story serve as a warning to all buying their first ________". I could be reading this on any motorcycle, vintage auto, used car/truck site. Not unique to Urals. Sorry for you issues. For me... I would have trailered it right to Heindl right in Ohio and gotten a square repair from them. Hop...

Re: Canine Co-pilots

So, so, so cute, those eyes. I miss my co-pilot.
When and if work starts to slow down we're almost ready to start looking at pups again.

Re: 2013 patrol newb question (low torque?)

You should see what is exactly in there. The factory jets that came with all rigs up to 2013 were lean in order to pass epa restrictions. First thing a good dealer would do or a proactive new owner would be to change out those jets for a richer mix. By how much... well that's owner alchemy and every...

Re: Carbs

Mine does that only when cold. This is not a turn-the-key and go bike if cold start popping and fartng bother you. Just let it warm up for a few minutes. A fuel tank cleaning, flushing the fuel lines, cleaning of the carbs (ultrasonic cleaner if you have one) and then buttoning all back up should el...

Re: Oh man just when you think it’s all set. Electric gremlins....

I say connections check first as well including your ground(s). At least before imagining all sorts of other stuff went wrong. BTW, turn your kickstarter first before hitting that electric start. Unrelated to your current problem but since you said: "Getting out of work the other night I hit the ele...

Jealous. A couple of my 2-wheel buddies (Scotty/Husky 701 & Rick/TW200) that know the regulars in Ural group may stop by and visit today or tomorrow. Not sure where they are camping in The Pines but certainly you guys will be very recognizable when riding in a squadron formation. Have fun and ride s...

Re: Looking for one of these DOGS

Very cool. My wife & I have started to look at a new shelter or pup now. Just too busy at work to bring a new member of the family home and just leave it for the whole day alone.
But we’ll find the time.

Congrats. That looks like a fine breed.
