Re: Does this count as a Soviet Steed?

Perhaps built by a long term Ural owner?

Re: Missing members.; dneprlover

With Dneprlover MIA (suspected passed away) I went searching for GregAus, as he was another great source of information and seemed to be absent here of late. GregAus last post: http://www.sovietsteeds.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=51213 Looks like this has caused GregAus to leave the forum. Betwee...

Re: Missing members.; dneprlover

As long as we are hunting; anyone know what happened to "Ragman & Froggie"? He kept getting worse, then dropped off the radar. Tragic what happened to him and his partner. Sounds like they were poisoned (CO?) which caused significant psychological and physical impairment and degradation. http://www...

Re: Missing members.; dneprlover

Some leave the forum for many reason's without ever saying good bye. Dneprlover was very active right up to his absence. As for myself; as I no longer own a Ural and have nothing more to contribute, here's my 'Good Bye' :flush: Take care, nice riding with you. Happy trails, Jaybird I'm back (for no...

Re: CL Find - 2012 Yamal $7900 - Albuquerque

The paddle is cool - so cool that I decided to remove it and hang it in my bar for preservation and entertainment. I now keep a Soviet-era shovel (blade repainted safety orange) on the tub instead. Per it's condition (oil stained), the first owner kept the paddle attached to the sidecar even while ...

Re: Missing members.; dneprlover

Funeral services on the 27th. Is it usual to wait as long as 18 days after death to have a crematorium funeral? If not, perhaps the date of death was the 19th (pure speculation).

Perhaps his time was set to a different time zone? Edit: The date time shown is not what others see. It relates to the viewers own chosen time zone in their board preferences.
