That would be fine. I'm still trying to get the hang of the sidecar, so twisty roads aren't on my agenda yet. Of course, it's a /5 so WFO is only about 65 - 70 which (I would assume) is slower than you plan on traveling.

there's a good mix of bike's at Poe's. you get a few sports guys, a few HD's, some of the local bmw club meet to stamp monthly news letters, there are some old bikes and LD riders.


the nicer the weather the more the bikes . I suggest eating breakfast somewhere else. It won't kill ya, but there's better out there.

It's been turned off due to performance problems, see "Ask Baldy Blame Fish"

Cross linking it in from another site is the only way right now.

The location looks like the small park on the Maury River (that's Route 60 on the bridge). It's on the west side of Buena Vista, VA heading towards Lexinton. No??

We have a Ural dealer on the board, so I don't to be too negative. I know a couple of people who have owned them, and basically they compare favorably to pre-evo HDs. If you want a bike to ride AND futz around with, they're not a bad choice. If you want one you can simply get on and go, I'd recommend you do what I did.



I paid $2500, and I'm looking at about $500 of tires / tuneup / fluid change / etc. I'll note that I recently missed out on a '73 R75/5 that went for $1500 and that needed nothing, and I saw a Velorex sidecar up in Ohio go for $700, so for $2500 you could have assembled a solid starter rig that will be almost as good as a new Ural that will cost you 2 1/2 times as much.

The next time we run into each other you're welcome to take mine for a spin.
