How Hacks Ride

After you figure out how to ride it, they are not to bad. I now enjoy mine a ton. They are really fun, and can go almost anyplace. I would put my Tourist almost on par with the KLR. I had an 03 KLR and the Tourist can go and do almost anything the KLR can. The major plus is that you never need to put your feet down! :)

Off road is where the Ural comes to life. The bike is a blast offroad, can go over almost anything and is very much like a tractor. The low end power is very good. It's nothing special onroad, it will get you there, just not fast. Mine is still breaking in and seems to have more power each day. Today I could cruise at 65 without much trouble. Good enough for me.

06 Tourist

Imagine if you had the 2WD like the Patrol & Gear-Up!

I have never used 2WD, mainly because I haven't had time to go
off-road exploring, but I'd imagine it is impressive in some situations.

I do wish I had a 3-point hitch and a PTO on mine... then I could
build that BMX track my son wants. But then again, hard work won't
hurt him, and if he really wants it, he will do it himself (I would have
when I was a kid!).

Got rid of this one about the time the TX650 went away. I had to make room for the 1978 SR500E I'm building.

It is isn't it...? And Yup... My first Guzzi was an '80 SP that I rode for about 60K and sold it to a friend to buy a new LeMans... I never forgot that friggin' thing.

Many moons later when this one came along I did not hesitate. Dual plug heads, lightened flywheel, Dyna III with Hot Coils, K&N's, it makes great power and it feels so good...!

I was not crazy about the Red & White pattern but it is growing on me.

This is as old as my school gets.

My first bike, a great runner. 1955 R50
This little number, with it's superior 6 volt electrical system, was twice as good as the old 3 volt Hendersons. Not to mention the unbeatable stopping power of dual drum brakes. I love it, I will never sell it.

Behold the mighty Deerpuncher, in all it's glory.
A 1977 R100/7 wanted by Supermodels and Rock stars.
Another bike I will never sell. I am going to convert it to a faux "S" this winter.
