RD,
Thanks for the info, I'll contact him. No problem with the wait, my Ural has taught me patience.

Any sign/banner shop should be able to make that star.

Chicks dig the Ural



Owning a sidecar translates to stability, willingness to partner, not placing yourself first, patience, aptitude, adventurous nature, disregard of passing trends, etc.


Ural = sexy

This is what ADV is all about.
A great many thanks to RidingDonkeys.

My good friend and fellow rider was stricken by MS several years ago. He is wheel chair bound and has been a member of ADV for quite a long time.

Ridingdonkeys loaned me his Ural Gear Up. gave me a few lessons on ridin it.
Well last night he was back in the saddle for a 100km ride...rain and all.

I haven't seen him this happy is years.

Thanks again Jeff.

Good on you for being a good friend. And good on RidingDonkeys for doing his part to make it all happen. And good on your buddy for being up for the ride!

May we all be so fortunate to have friends and a community like this!

Ural for fun and adventure



We rolled to a stop on the gravel track. Our dust cloud caught up with us and swept passed. I raised my helmet shield and tasted the grit in my mouth. It savored it. The dust told me I wasn’t on pavement, I was in the woods, right where I wanted to be.

The other six riders in our mini convoy of Russian motorcycles took off their helmets and commenced to shoot the breeze. Some lit up smokes. The day was gray but the colors still sang on the trees. Nobody was in a hurry.

This year, for our annual fall campout and ride, we were in the woods west of Oquossoc, near Big Falls in Upper Cupsuptic. I arrived after dark the night before after narrowly missing a moose on Route 17, south of the Height of Land. I came so close I could have reached out and grabbed a tuft of fur on his rump. Luckily, I was fully loaded for camping and going uphill. My underpowered soviet steed was only making 35 mph in third gear. Still, I left skid marks. I won’t say exactly where, though.

That had been the only drama of the trip, so far...

Click the link for the rest of the story, a video and an original song. Sorry to link offsite, but I make part of my living blogging about my rides.

He'd probably use a vodka bottle cap.

2011 Patrol Oil leak

new user with some oil leaking questions.

Just purchased a 2011 Patrol 2WD with 1400km that has been sitting in a garage for the last 1.5 years. When I trailored the bike home there were no oil leaks/seeps anywhere, I immediately changed the engine and gearbox oil, cleaned out the carbs and flushed the fuel tank. After getting the unit started I have noticed two oil leaks that are significant enough to prevent me from going on long hauls.

First, there is an oil leak coming from the clutch release button on the left/aft side of the gearbox, I assume all I need for this is a new o-ring.

Second, there is an oil leak dripping from the bottom of the engine/gearbox seem and accumulating on the top of the engine oil sump cavity. Is there a way to determine where this leak is originating from without separating the gearbox and engine. Also, since this machine was sitting idle for almost two years is there a higher probability of which is leaking (gearbox main seal or crankshaft main seal).

Last, now that I have two definite oil leaks within the first 200km, what else is likely going to go. I'm assuming this has happened because the machine sat for so long and then was started up so I gouged/tore the seals when I cranked it over.

Thanks.
