BTW I would seriously think about mounting a MG42 looklike (not real of couse). It would just set it off
Yes or even a MG 34.
I have a few seconds of 8mm around here someplace.

Heeheehee

You guys are cracking me up.
The Ural is in Boxborough Massachusetts and I plan on flying out to get it in April. First have to sort out closing on a new property in Milton, which will quadruple my shop floor, quadruple size of dog pasture, and double the current living space compared to current bivouac. Hiring several new people after that since we have 995 outstanding orders. Been swamped, but blessed.

Oooh. Cool itinerary Woods Rider !! Baja in June. Wish I could scrounge the time to do that. Soon perhaps.
1st foray for one of my bikes (not sure which yet) is TAT in August, then onto Modoc CA, and back by way of folks house in NM.

Wink Too funny not to share

I was in Ecuador at the beginning of the month, rented a DR650 from Freedom bike rental. Pretty cool except for the throttle limiter... Anyway I saw this chick in the CRAZY traffic in Quito. Didn't notice she was breast feeding until just after I took the shot!!! I thought my riding was high risk!

DS Ride thru Blackwater and Conecuh Forest

Guys and Gals

Lately I have been exploring North Blackwater and Conecuh National forest along with WoodRider Barney and others...

While its not the Smokeys or Northern Alabama its damn pretty country with lots to see and only an hour away. Low key. Lots of fun.

How about April 20 as a date.

Start at Karick Lake and head North to Open Pond then North up thru Conecuh to 10 different ponds/lakes and Gas and Eat at Wing - 60 miles (not much there but its the only place that works). Then West and South to complete the loop through Blackwater. Another 50 miles.

I will ride the 5hunny but this ride could be done on bigger bikes. Its mostly dirt roads with some pavement. I will leave out all the "real dirty" stuff for another ride. I would plan on lots of stops... 10 ponds!!! and bring some food along.

All day ride. You GS guys might ejoy this one.

what say you all....

BTW I will probably ride up there again this weekend if anyone is interested in splorin and lots of turn arounds...

Did I heard GS?

I might just hop along. Flight school should be mostly done by then.

BTW, speaking of GS's, anyone have a set of street tires they aren't using? I'm driving from Perdido Key to Milton every day on my Scorpion Ralley's, which aren't quiet or that fuel efficient, to say the least. I'm talking throw-away tires, mostly worn, but still some life in them.

Oh, and WoodsRider... that's way too much fun for someone that isn't terminally ill. Needless to say, I'm super jealous.

Cheers.

Eric

I'm out for the 20th also. Rotorhead and I rode Brox on Sunday in the beautiful weather and it was f-ing awesome! Just as good as it used to be when we rode it all the time and we really didn't see ANY closures.

I'd had found a website that sold all kinds of Russian Military add ones for the Ural's, Gun mounts, mounts for AK-47 that go inside the side car. Ill try to find it.
