I ran this in my signature on Zombie Squad. Just need someone good with photoshop to change Zombie Squad to ADV and the word "fight" to "ride".

+1 - very true. At least thanks to folks like you I get to enjoy some wrench free Ural Adventures...even if only through my computer screen...

Reality show...

Dude call one of those reality show cable channels. Seriously, I dunno what you do for a day job but a guy riding the country on a Ural with his dog in a sidecar would be a total hit!

Great story, thanks.

VikB, that pie army graphic is priceless. We may have to start our own pie specific touring section. Forget Alaska, link together rides with pie shops and dirt roads.

Maybe we can call ourselves 'The 3.12 percenters'.

Nice shot! But no... not going to be doing it on a hack...although that would make my Dad green with envy....he loves em! No...I'll be doing it on the back of my 990 Adv. A bit swanky, but its what I got

Thanks again for the report, it was a great ride

Hi RP.
I just rode home to Atlanta after completing the GDR. Great ride.
As I was riding, I was wondering how the Ural handled New Mexico. Everything previous looked doable until NM. The section from Cuba to Grants was especially challenging--there had been a lot of rain, and there were many wash outs. You must have had some different tracks than I did, because I spent the afternoon building ramps so that I could get my KLR out of the washes. I could have really used your shovel

If you get your tracks squared away, I would like to look at them. I want to put together a set of tracks which are fun to ride without some of the bike breaking/dinking around sections.

As an aside, I ran into your merry band of tweakers in Columbus, MT. I was eating breakfast in McDonalds, and a cute young girl with matted hair and Grateful Dead clothes was pan handling for gas money (we need gas, almost home!) I offered to put $20 of gas in her car when I gassed up my bike which she balked at (was looking for cash.) We had some conversation and I put 2+2 together, saw the van, and told her to have a nice day. She was the happy face of the group--the rest looked pretty scary. Somehow, I doubt that these are kids out for some youthful indiscretion.

Great ride report. I have really enjoyed it. Thanks for spending the time to share your story. When you get done, make a PDF of the R/R and save it for when you are old. It would make a good read for you some day.

Cheers,
Doug

This has been a great report, awesome pictures and writing. Most of all, you've inspired me to find a way to ride with my Springer who is my pride and joy. Watching Lola was priceless!

Thank you!

Gerry

This was from the trip home to So Cal from Washington down Hwy 1.
