Hey Congrats, pickup my '08 Gear Up today and it has been sitting for sometime so, need to work the battery and clean the carbs, but still took it for a short spin this afternoon.bgenest wrote:Hey All,
I've been lurking here for a few months to do some research on Ural's to see if it was the bike I want to ride off into the sunset on. Also, to see how the guys & gals treat each other, some sites can get real nasty but this seems like a friendly and helpful group. From what the members have posted, the help and support you give each other I figured, what the hell, if I am going to jump in this would be the group I want standing on the sidelines to help support this endeavor, I will try not to make a fool of myself.
So I did it yesterday, dropped the hammer and bought a new bike. As a retirement (7 months away) present to myself I bought a 2015 Patrol (burgundy) from URALNE. It was a good experience, everyone I worked with at URALNE was knowledgeable and friendly, it made the decision to purchase much easier, they are only 45 minutes away and they gave me a free T shirt!
I've been riding since the sixties (old days) and still have three other bikes, which I will sell this spring, a 2003 Suzuki Volusia, 2006 Aprilia Sacarabeo 500 and a china scoot for around the camp. I had a total shoulder replacement last year and it is starting to get difficult to ride and hold up the heavier bikes.
I have absolutely no experience with a sidecar rig so this is going to be interesting. I am going to have to learn all over again and that's okay with me. I just got a copy of the Yellow Book and will start practicing once the weather improves, my older bones can no longer take the cold. I will also sign up for a three wheeler course.
Thanks for reading this and I look forward to learning to ride again. Hello from the Boston area.
