Actually my bro is more famous for take- offs and riding thousands of miles on bikes he paid $100-$300 for.
Low buck touring, keep the costs down and the enjoyment up.

Hey, gotta give him credit! I would just be worried about the bike breaking down under me.

Ron there is a code on the sidewall that gives 4 numbers. The 1st two are month and the 2nd two are year. I may be wrong. You can tell how old that tire is with 20% tread on by reading the code 1198 might be manufactured in November 1998. I could be wrong.

Yes. That's it week and year. Good stuff to know when encountering tires of questionable origin.
You'd be surprised what you find in the take off pile. Eg: guy is going on big trip, wants " fresh tire" for trip. Has 30% tread left( often more) but wants to leave with a new tire " so he will make it back home"
That's when a "fresh" tire hits the take off pile. I will leave home with a poor tire if I am going to USA. A new Dunlop 404 on the Glide was over 4$ Hun in Canada with installation and a set of rear pads. I got them for a hunnerd bucks in the States until a couple years ago they went up to $140 . Tires are easy to find and slap on.

Finndian & Backroader : we'll do a tour down the Sino circuit someday. Hit the best roads, great cheap accomadations and stop to see some competition events where real hardcore bike people are trying to win against their opponents.
The Mille Lacs Grand Casino has a pretty good buffet there near the BIR raceway as well as the affiliate Sino in Hinkley, a good stop after or before hitting the $10 tent sites at Hole in the Wall.

Ron did you catch the price tag on the 2WD Ural? Was it 0 miles brand new?

The Ural is 0 miles, brand new. Much better looking in person than the pictures would have you think.

I'll see if Steve knows what it is worth, he's working there again.

I checked them out in AZ. Very cool machines. Very rustic. An eccentric's ride for sure! Brian? The TWD would be just the ticket for your off season meanderings.

Maybe Steve will chime in with some of his recent ride photos. Still waiting to see some of the pics from Bwokentoof.
I always wanted the 2WD Ural. Still do.

Looking for a new ride

I sold my drz. Not for any particular reason, just want to try something else.
If anyone is selling something or knows someone who is send me a pm.
Want to go bigger on the cc's and still be as dirt worthy as the drz.
Looks like I have a little time to look around before riding season.

Great Pics Heckto, you look like you are having a champagne blast on a beer budget. Can't deny I am jealous

How about a Ural GS http://www.ural-land.com/ural-motorc...s/ural_gs.html
