Yep. Blew the Winter gas out of the xr a couple days ago. Today after work ran some Seafoam in a new tank for 20-25 miles then pre-loaded her up for a ride I'm doing in The Pines on Sunday.

The moment I put the last tie-down on we had a wicked Summer-like storm. Ya can't go from 23 degrees last week to 70 degrees today without suffering some sort of circumstances. Crazy thunder & lightning show!

No and No, regrettably. I've gotta' change that. I've hardly ridden in about the last year. I let too many other things get in the way.
Hey Don
:(
I hope the other things are at least as fun as riding your Ural :D

Regrettably, NO! I wouldn't mind it so much if I was actually having FUN!
