Fantastic, sorry for the delayed response... been slammed trying to get ready for the move.

The Ural is a special bike to own. You can haul anything just about anywhere, just not very quickly. Fire roads are great for the Ural.the kids would love it. Also a great bike for those that like to camp due to the amount of stuff you can haul.

Maintenance seems to be something this bike likes to have a lot off. People that like to tinker with an old school design will be in heaven. If you don't like to tinker then be sure you have a good relationship with a mechanic and roadside assistance :-)

Ride Saturday

Lets do this we meet at the original time and depending on who shows and what riding levels we have we can decide weather to attempt the Crown King side or opt for the easier plan B. Either way I will be happy just to get out and do some riding.

Bill

Help me find some fuel line plz!
I'm trying to source some clear fuel line.
Hardware stores only have clear vinyl, not sure if it is okay for gas.
Napa, BAP, pep boys, cycle gear...nada.

One place I found it, a landscape power tool dealer wants $3 a foot!

Anyone...
Thx
Jeff

$2 a foot, 0.25" diameter. But you'll pay shipping.

Hey Jeff,

Just wanted to say Hi and see how you are healing up? Too bad that they totaled the bike but have fun getting a replacement.

Saturday

I would love to join you guys on Saturday if there is room? I am assuming this is more of a dual sport bike type ride as opposed to a big bike ride? I live in Carefree area so I think I am fairly close to the meeting location? Kinda new to the area so i may need some directional assistance. Thanks.

You are more than welcome

We have 2 potential routes, one easier than the other. What kind of bike are you going to be riding?

Later

Thanks Bill!
I'm getting better everyday. Hope to trick the Dr into giving me medical clearance on Thursday Got the replacement bike shortly after being released from the hospital. Yesterday, found another bike, so now I have two to choose from. Yes, I am a man of priorities, though my wife is questioning the sort order of them Hope to be back on the trail soon!

I did a quick Google search for 'clear fuel line' and J&P cycles sells Vinyl...
$2.99 for 3ft...maybe try GoAZ HD......or other bike shops.....

What is local? Where are you? The local shop by my place on Pecos & Sossoman carried fuel line. I'm sure other shops carry them as well.

I ride a CRF 250L and ride mostly close to home, no truck or trailer. I work retail and have only 1 weekend a month off so I don't make a lot of the group rides.
Would be great to meet up for a ride sometime. If you can ever ride a weekday let me know, I go out a lot on my own and usually have the riding area to myself. I usually ride Lake Pleasant, Table Mesa, Jomax, and Boulders OHV.
Boulders on a weekday morning is fantastic, tons of fun trails all to yourself and maybe a work crew and 1 or 2 other guys.

I'm over in Ahwatukee. Looks like I just gotta bite the bullet on some $3 line, even though it is a ridiculous price for extruded plastic.
