I just had Hannigan put a Bandito on my 2006 R1200RT. Expensive, but is a very nice looking rig. Their paint shop does an excellent job of matching color and finish.

Don't get wrapped up in torque settings on a Ural. You will wind up regretting it. The lawn mower you traded probably has more technology than the Ural. It is one of those kind of bikes that if you...

Thanks Jay. I like your rigs, especially the M72D on a BMW GS. You are on the "left coast" and I am on the "right coast". At my age it would take a lifetime to get there.

Thanks for your input. I am wondering how wide the whole rig would be? Lots of questions. Canbus, ABS, it looks like I will need professional help.

Choice - Claude or Hannigan for the install?

Many of the changes are dictated by EU requirements. If you think it is now "too modern" then perhaps you will buy my 2007 Patrol. That would enable me to replace it with the "Uber-modern" 2014...

I too have a 07' Ural Patrol and I have the original battery and have never "trickled" charged it. It still works great. Stating the obvious - don't screw with it, have the dealer fix or replace.

That is a very "clean design"! I love it. Did you make it yourself or buy it? If you bought it, who did you buy it from?
