Glad you got home ok Bully. Did you get the stop light fixed? Not that there is much need of a brake between Adelaide and Perth There are literally 5 turns in 2500+km's from my place to Perth. Did the missus freak out or is she ok with it. Say g'day to Eaglebeak for me.

Good one bully
Is it a 92.
Hard to tell from the pics, has the front brake had an upgrade?
How does it stop?

it is indeed a 92 Russ and NOOOOOO the brake has not been upgraded, as for stopping, a brick on a piece of rope would be more effective

Going to put it into get a full service and all electrics and brakes sorted before I register it over here.

I did the wunderlich bigger disc conversion on my black and blue one it helped a bit, on the red and white one I put a 4 pot K series brembo calliper on and it's way better.

I can take some pics if you want?

Bet you had a few moments when you first rode it

was a lot of fun

Vince at bassendean motorcycles is going to convert the single disk to a twin disc 4 pot setup, should stop on a dime then , also going to sort out the electrical gremlins, I had tail light but no brake light now it's the other way round so going to sort that out and give it a good service before I take over the oil/filter regime. Michael at Motoradd has a few bits and bobs from a HPN project so will also score those, the new chair should be ready at the end of january, Greg at Waspworks wants to get stuck into a few things as well so should end up with a pretty good "ALL ROADS "tourer .

I can feel a WA sidecar get together coming up

Congrats on the new bike - nice looking rig, and having ridden (driven) a Ural myself, I'd say you were wise to buy the bike you did!
