I'm loving the reports, Golg.
Wish I was there with you both.

Keep the photos coming!

G'day Luke!
Yeah, we're loving it down here in NZ. It's hard to believe that it's been almost 7 years since we moved here. Crazy how fast time flies.
Now that I'm following tom's ride report, I'm thinking about adding some of my own on here. (I just went on a great 5 day trip around the south island last month.

You may not believe it, but I was just thinking about you yesterday. Seriously!
The local newspaper had the results of the giant pumpkin growing contest. I'll always think about you and your dad whenever I see humongous pumpkins!

Nice!

Great report, sir. I love seeing Urals rolling all over the USA. Keep it coming.

By the way, I love what you've done to the nose of the hack. My wife has really wanted to do something similar to our own rig...

I just wrote out an entire report and the internet went down.
I don't have it in me to spend another half hour to do it again.
Here is the California coast from where Rt.1 to Gualala.
Last night I contacted ADVRider and SovietSteeds member Ivan Rider who lives on Bodega Bay. We'll be heading down there shortly. He very graciously is letting us stop by to change the oils and swap my rear tire with the sidecar tire. Yesterday's twisties got the rear tire to about 25%. The other two are at 80% or so. Julie says it's because I'm sliding the ass end in some of the turns. A Ural drifting machine?
See you guys tomorrow.

It was nice to see this old stuff in such great shape. My kids will be happy to see that I found these places.

Ohh, I just got caught up on the last few days worth of your posts and photos and it's literally bringing tears to my eyes. So many of your photos are the exact same that I took less than a year ago! I'm glad you two are having so much fun- I know precisely how amazing it is.

On the home front, the dogs and chickens are doing wonderfully. We've been getting up at 5 a.m. every morning to go for a walk around the property- they'll be trained and getting you up nice and early when you make it home.

DRIVE CAREFULLY and take your time (now I get to be the parent).

Livin the dream

Looks like you and the wife are having a fantastic time. The pics are great, keep um coming.
How is the Ural running? I have always thought about getting a Ural to ride in the winter months.

Stay safe

Hi Dennis,
We are packing up and heading your way shortly.

Subscribed! My all time favorite bike was my old R60/3 with /5 forks, so
the URAL looks just right. Maybe one is in my future.
Thanks for the ridealong.

Wonderful trip!! If you like big trees try to make a pass through Sequoia National Forest if you head inland California. It's filled to the brim with the biggest trees you'll ever see!! Also, Yosemite is a must-see if you're in the area. Wish I could ride out to meet you but a bum back keeps me indoors this week so I'm living vicariously through your report!!

Well, the ride is continuing to be great, but technology is biting me in the ass hard tonight. We got a room with WIFI again so I could do this RR. First was an email from Photobucket saying I had to pay to keep going. No problem. I went to their website and paid. Now it is set up differently than the free account I was using. It refuses to let me into my pictures so I can upload them to Photobucket. great. Then I get an email from my CC telling me I need to call them right away because of my last transaction (Photobucket!) I have no phone service out here on Point Reyes. No room phone either. Let's see if I have a functioning CC in the morning.

Point Reyes. I knew you couldn't resist staying on Hwy 1. Sure enjoyed our visit today. After watching you change your fluids and swap the rear tires I'm confident you will not encounter anything on this adventure you can't handle. Have a great adventure and keep the ride report going.

I thought you might like an update from the home front. This is what's been happening nightly after the second walk around the property:



Vicious beasts.

Good morning Dennis, Becky, and Lucy. Thank you so much for your time and Ural lessons. Julie and I enjoyed your company and the views from your property. You guys are blessed to be living where you are. Most people don't dare to dream of waking up with that for their yard.
We stopped for gas shortly after we left you and went over the map once more. Rt. 1 and Point Reyes pulled at me. Nothing has been left off our places we wanted to see yet and I didn't want to start yet. (Yosemite is likely the first goner. Too cold.)
Still no luck with Photobucket. With a lot of luck it will turn out to be a poor internet connection here on Pt. Reyes. Half our emails are also unsuccessful.
