Well much thanks to Bill & Brian (sorry, I don't have the correct online names) for giving it the old college try with on the fly repairs for the Ural. Especially Brian, you are one crazy guy (I mean that nicely!) and one determined guy to try the towing thing!

Anyway, despite all of that, it was a fun weekend everyone! Thanks for the idea and for waiting on the slow sidecar rider ;) Next time will be better!

stranded

Nah, we are fine. Me and Gulliver have just been hanging out at Christopher Creek restaurant's patio. Dave is on the way with the truck and trailer. Gotta love the ADV folks, they are always so awesome at helping and always multiple offers of help!

Man that sucks! I am really sorry to hear that you are still stranded Karla. Make sure you call me if you have problems. I am going to dinner with my kids, but I always have my cell phone on. Good luck to you guys. I still feel bad, I was just a few miles away. -Paul

Another Ural?

Hope you get back ok and get the rig up and running soon.

Bonnie still has her's but hasn't ridden it much lately.

We should go for a ride soon.

Brian

Okay we are all loaded up and ready to hit the 260 and home.

Yes Brian/Brain, another Ural and yes, we should go for a ride. Well, soon. Once the rig is fixed up again. Where do you take Bonnie's for service? Anyone you recommend?

What A ride

I just got in and I have to say this was an epic ride

Despite some change in plans I had a fantastic time and would like to thank everyone.

Dave and Karla, I very pleased to hear you are all set and heading home

I will post my pics tomorrow


Bill

Sounds like I want to ride with Crown Royal! I mean both the user and the beverage.

Silver lining of being up there later than planned:

WOW the milky way tonight!!!
Saw a cute little fox. Saw several big elk and they were even courteous and didn't try to kill us by dashing in front of the truck or anything! Also heard them bugelling or whatever it's called. Never actually got to hear that before.

Bill, we'll be watching for those pics!

WTF... I dropped the Ural off at GO AZ today and I cannot for the life of me make the bog down happen again. I even rode around for a 1/2 hour on the loop 101 hitting freeway speeds, climbing up on ramps and not a problem. No the hell is up with that rig.

Left it at the dealer and asked them to do their best guess . That will be an interesting bill

Paul, Thanks for the offer of help.

Brian, Thanks for the help and attempt at towing.

Bill, thank for posting the ride. Was a fun couple of days!

Brain, yes we will have to get together for a URAL ride soon. Maybe even a snow ride in November?

I am not a Ural mechanic but I have had bikes that have had major bogging issues in the past. The things I found wrong:

KLR Fuel vent hose kinked or my weight more than the mechanic and pinched the tube. Resolution slash cut vent hose and several other holes in vent tube.

Loose fuse holder on my BMW. The wire connections were intermittent in the fuse box area. Tightened all up and added dialeectric greese.

Honda 360 bogged badly above 5,000 feet and wouldn't run worth a dam for quite a while after. Changed to NGK plugs and new plug resistors and never happened again.

Just some things to check. Oh yeah, does that have an oil bath air filter? I had a VW bug with an oil bath filter. It always took some time for it to clear up after I had tipped too far. The plug would take a bit to clear out the foul from the oil in the chamber.

All problems seem to compound when you are at altitude.
Good luck, let us know if you need help. I have never torn a Ural apart.
