Hello from Croatia

Post by Ivo_Croatia » Fri Dec 20, 2019 1:22 am

Hello people here,

my name is Ivo, 35 years young, father (twins) and housband, electrician. Sorry for my handmade "excellent" english. :cheers:

I´m living in Croatia, the backyards of Dalmatia. Many mountains, rivers, forests and beautiful landscapes here. In former time, I live 27 years in Germany, but since two years I went back to my home, Croatia.

Since 2013 I am a user of a Ural 750 Tourist 2001. I´ve bought it in bad conditions. It was love on first sight and decide to buy it.
I´ve changed several things.
-New Tires Heidenau K37 malte
-compleatly new electrical instalation
-new altenator denso with adapter
-ignition Boyer Bransden modification
-i dont know the name of it: I think camshaft wheel and crankcase wheel new. The two wheels in the front from German prduktion Herzog.
-Keihin carburators rejetting and cleans up 100 times.
-Control section for lights, flash lights from a yamaha, the old russian stuff was bad bad bad
-Sidecar chair new leather
-fuel pipes new
-fuel filters
-fuel tank clear up from rust, so many rust folks....
-car battery in trunk-
-new main supply cables 25mm2 to battery.
-fuse case new (under seat)
-ignition lock undear seat

I love the Ural and the whole Ural virus has catch me, It´s nice to ride a Ural. Also I have a Yamaha XJR1300SP from 2001 an a Yamaha SuperTenere XTZ 750 from 1995, great bikes!

Greeting from Croatia
Ivo

Great photos. On one of our last trips to Croatia, we stayed in a town called Novo Vinodovski. Great diving and snorkeling. on one of our side trips we went down to a huge national forest/park. This is an area where Tito and his partisans hid out from the Germans during WWII. That waterfall shot reminds me of that park. Have not been back to Croatia since 2005 and I hope the back roads have improved. We took the main highway down to Dubrovnik and hit some potholes that would have buried a truck.

The cat is a „european“ cat.
Got it, will call it Euro Cat. I didt like them when I was younger but wound up with 6 or so over the years and enjoy them.

Have not even considered putting ours in the Ural, I don't think it would be pretty.
