Re: Black glove dye bleeding

Thanks Everyone. I re read my post and damn. The Orange Glo got my HANDS clean. But you all knew what I meant asking how to cure the gloves. Hal, Yes I'm gonna try the soap soak. Maybe use saddle soap I have. The vinegar will be last resort. And yes neutralize it with baking soda. BURP !! :puke: (lo...

Re: EDC, what's your Every Day Carry?

I'm with the OP. I feel naked any day if I don't have my little red Swiss Army knife with the tweezers, toothpick, scissors and small blade in my front right pocket. I keep the blade sharp. It easily slices clean through 1/2 inch 10 ply 210 burst corrugated cardboard. You know the kind of stuff Gun ...

Black glove dye bleeding

Howdy, There is a lot of info from web search but I thought I'd come here to ask. Yesterday after 7+ hours wearing unlined black deerskin gauntlet gloves in mostly heavy rain for 7 hrs, even with rain gators over them, my hands were pretty darn black. Grotesquely black top to bottom both sides. The ...

Re: Why did you pick a Ural to ride ?

Why did I pick a Ural to ride ? I didn't. While I can relate and agree to most every answer above, the truth is The Devil made me do it ! I think I first saw a Ural ad around 1995 in CW. They weren't pushing hacks, just the Solo 650 for like an Introductory $1,995.00 plus fees. Later I saw they had ...

Rain or Shine Tour

Three years ago my wife, soon to be Road Monkey, read my mind and said she wanted to try a sidecar too. She is adventuresome. My idea was a supersonic Jetson type. Hers was a Ural. She won. Twice now. But hey I get to trail ride and have a street machine too. We finally planned a 4 day trip 325 mile...

Re: 2014 M70 for sale $10,500 In WI

The seller, Dean, is definitely motivated. I cant make it a financial priority to ship or drop everything to retrieve it. Not his problem. Perfect for my wife. M70 is her favorite model. I did do a 30 mile test ride on a 2012 M70 about 18 mos ago and can affirm how they handle remarkably well. I'm a...

Re: Forgot insert and dumb question

Lew knows I'm taking a road trip this Sunday-Wednesday. I PMd him. Lew, I will find some crush washers before I leave. Anyone know the size off hand ? Took a good ride, highway and trail today. So far so good.

Good looking out Lew, from another SS member.
Thanks !

Re: Forgot insert and dumb question

Thanks Hal and Rob, Just now put the "top hat" on the EMGO. Tight fit. The O ring didnt fit up, under or in between anything. Just around the rim of the top hat. IIt's my fault. I probably got it all wrong :feelsgood: but I'm on the fence, leaning to Rob and Hal until I see a factory diagram, if the...

Re: Forgot insert and dumb question

Rob, The '07 had been fully serviced immediately prior to purchase 10 months ago. This was my first DIY Ural engine oil change. Off came the round cover with a small O ring in place where it attaches to the filter. The larger housing O ring intact. The filter was stuck inside the cavity. I easily pr...

Re: [Craigslist Find] 2001 Ural with radio in sidecar $3500

Not a lot of leg room... :( Exactly what I thought :? Now there's a Ural owner/seller that had different priorities than most. Small dogs, children, groceries :?: That is a cool little system though. And isn't that a soon to be extinct Retro. Fair price. Looks decent and maybe just a few little thi...
