Hello from Tx -New GU Owner

Post by Tinkerer » Fri Aug 24, 2018 1:05 pm

Hello All
New 2018 GU owner here. I'm not new to Side cars having previously owned a Texas Side car mated to a 2005 HD Sporty...
Gotta say that I really love the Ural! It is a far cry from my old daily driver - a 2008 HD Geezer Glide. I was poking around here getting a ton of info before getting my rig at AF1 Racing in Austin and gotta say I think I was a pretty informed buyer before taking a test drive and making the purchase. I hope to be able to share what I'm doing to make my rig more enjoyable (if that's possible LOL) as well as learn from the experts here.

Super - Greetings! San Antonio and the hill country should have great riding, and of course the sausage factory in Fredericksburg with maybe a brew or two, maybe a glass of the red!

Welcome. I bought my Gear Up from AF1 too. Have bout 1700 miles on it now and no problems. This is my third one and they keep getting better. Did you have AF1 load the off road map? I had it put on mine. Enjoy it.
