Your bikes look too clean to be at a real Ural rally :)
Looks like a really great time.

I have not been to Gettysburg since a trip with the boy scouts maybe 50 years ago. Your pictures of the battlefield and the tour are a sobering reminder of how brutal, tragic & sad for both North & South. Inspires me to make a return hopefully sometime this Summer or Fall.

That was a GREAT trip. Good to do some Uraling that doesn't end in muddy, wet, mechanical carnage.
I didn't even know these things could be ridden on pavement...

Thanks for arranging a great event Dave VW!
And it wasn't that we were less than enthused about leaving at 8:30am, it was that we know the realities of riding with a group of Urals. Herding flaming cats is easier. But you did a great job keep everyone on track!

Gettysburg. as alway, is humbling and awe inspiring when you consider the sheer scale of the conflict.
Everyone should go at least once, to remind themselves of what it took to truly be a united nation.

Great time and I can't wait to see everyone again!
