He is a tall guy with short arms on a small bike. I sit that far back on standards but my knuckles drag on the ground when I walk so I don't lock my arms out.


He makes that thing look like a pit bike.

Maybe the dude should spend some of that light money on gloves and a better helmet for his kid. And maybe a real vented/ mesh jacket.

Also can a ural actually power all those lights at once?

Seriously though, I'm in theatre, and spent most of my life in a dance studio. It is surprising how much of this shit you pick up.

Yes they can. Under the fairing, there is a small nuclear reactor powered with Chernobyl nuclear ashes.

While she looks attractive (as far as we can see) I think that accessory pillion would probably cost you waaay more than you anticipate.

Things have been busy so going back to add to this note.

For sure do this. At home there are far more things on the list to do than I have time. Still there is bike time. While not a quick as the CRB1000RR my RC is just a hoot to ride. I find I grab it for most rides under 200 miles and if no supplies are needing to be picked up. Longer rides or carrying stuff the BMW gets the nod. So while mileage this past year is way low, it was still about 5000 on each bike. Go for it.

I am a bit passed you now and can get the senior discounts. Not sure why you would wait on this one. I regret that I did.

NCS
