Tractor weight

My little 35 hp tractor is pushing 5 tons, I'd venture to guess that big tractor is closer to 12 to 15 tons.

My experience

Not a lot to do to a WR seat, except SeatConcepts....too narrow a set to do much.

Thanks for the educational VIDEO.

You're lucky it wasn't worse. Little pink ribbons were barely noticeable until you were on the ground.

Do yourself a favor....

Get any accessories, skid plate, crash bars, jackets needed...if possible. Many dealers will give you a 20% to 40% discount on accessories when you buy the bike...mine gave 30%.

They'll probably break....

One drop and the plastic will probably split open....you're better off with pelican or storm or one of the look-a-like plastic boxes that are more durable....but personally hate side opening cases.

Look out for yourself first.

I too like to give a fair price. But considering 59,000 miles on a '74 you know you will probably spend some $$$, tweeking and servicing a few things...and be closer to a 2012 or 2013 Ural, that has...

Pelicans

Takes patience but you can also find used one on eBay,AdvRider, craigslist, etc in $40 to $50 range. I'd rather have one Pelican or Storm box than two ammo cans.

I have two of those, good to keep ammo dry but the lids will easily blow off on a motorcycle and will only store about 1/2 of what a Pelican case will.
