Talking wishing and hoping

Wish I had checked the thread yesterday. Would have loved to join the ride today.
Any rides planned before the DV Noob Rally?

Thumb ! Ural !

SWEET ! .

I have Urals too , only Solos .

Once you try one you'll be hooked , they're the most fun you'll ever have with your pants on .

Plus , Wives , kids and dogs all love 'em .

They really do go anywhere and are very reliable , mine have never left me afoot .

sean, the bike was flawless. light @ 250#, nimble and with decent power. don't need more. throttle is very crisp.

still stock suspension and was soft, but it didn't bother me.

14/52 gearing is great. stock was 14/45. bike and rider are happy on 3rd gear. 60 mph on pavement is ok,

i will be installing a 5.3 gal tank and an aftermarket exhaust next.

after the suspension job (3/4 lower), a steering damper will be nice.

52T on the rear! I run 14/50 on my 310 and it's got plenty of grunt in the tight stuff. Mine is lowered just a smidge as well.

Wait until you drop a Rekluse in that thing. So happy for you Joel. Really really fun little bike.

Thanks for the heads up! I actually rode with Rider914 at Lytle Creek with my newly acquired 07 450exc. HS what a blast that bike is! Feels like a giant downhill mountain bike that goes uphills real fast too - awesome day. I'll subscribe to this thread and try sift through the chatter so I know where and when to hook up in the future.

Thumb Urals

They can be had with either the tractor seat(s) or a very good bench seat .

Parts are cheap and plentiful , I don't find the need for many parts .

Be aware these are not made for going 75 + MPH .
