Come on Chapharral and UPS! Don't leave me on the outside looking in. I know my kid well enough to know she'll be sleeping all of Sunday daylight so as long as I get a tire , I am in!

something is not right in this house.........the old hag is trying to bait me to go out with her by telling me I'll get my Christmas present.......I told her what I wanted from her....Lone Star has a VERY nice cold weather shirt...(DROOL!!!) "I'm not buying you anything for your motorcycle...I don't approve of that you'll get what I buy you"..........REALLY....!?!?!?!?

And I have signed up for a dirt class with poor Brad.........

Should we already print flyers for SOG and Ghost or wait a bit longer.......????

Ghost, check this rig out,but if you want one you'll have to get another job or two.

I wonder how controllable it is...I would like to have a hack one day...I like the idea of 2 wheel drive but Urals just seem so shoddy

I love the look of a Ural Gear-Up but I cannot imagine a worse choice for me.

I'm pretty sure most everything on a Ural can be fixed with a BFH.

I rode with a fella last weekend with a red and white GSPD. Really nice. I told him that I want his bike with one of those painted to match off-road sidecars. That to me is the ultimate hack rig. I'll get one some day.

Well, my pogo stick is back home and the new shock works...but I'm tip toe again. Guess I got used to it sagging a bit. Seems to me it'll break in a bit over time too.
