Because everyone should want an 800 lbs., 40 HP, 60 year old technology, vehicle that gets worse gas mileage than a modern car?

I was talking about Ural, not Harley.

Oh, wait.

Hell, I don't want to own one, I just want to ride one.

Congratulations, solo. You got #15k

Are any of you going to the camp/ride at the end of March? I'm thinking of driving out to hang out and have a few beers by the fire.

DRZ400E with a MX71 front/D739 rear and stock gearing, and a GSXR that needs fork seals. Hour forty-five to Scottsdale.

Yep. I'm driving.

Pretty sure I'm going. May not be camping since my wife will be out of town and I will need to take care of the dog but I may be able to get someone to watch her for a couple of days.

Sounds good. Y'all stop by and have a chat, can't miss me, older suburban with Alaska plates. I was thinking of bringing my trailer just in case anybody's bike gives out. I can also haul anyone's gear since I'm not riding.

You mean that Russian turnip truck - those things really are lame - I have reason to know.

Seeing as how the chance of rain is about 100% for Saturday in Scottsdale I think I am going to pass on my chance to ride the Russian Turnip truck.

Does anybody know of a GPS tracking app for an iPhone that works like a SPOT device?
