You don't sound happy about this.
What is the reason for the sale?
Specs & price?

Well I'm finally at a point in life where I have the free time for the loooong trips I have been planning for 20+ years.I do love the rig but my wife wants to ride her own bike on these long trips so the rig just doesn't get used that much.I also commute on 2 wheels everyday and 60-70 mpg's sounds real good!.
We are heading up to Deadhorse in June and would like to have the NC by then.No it won't get hacked,maybe sometime in the future I will have the means to get the Ural 2wd I want !!.

I can feel another US tour coming on......... Oh rats no spare money this week. Still it would have worked a treat. Hope it goes to a good home or to some adventurous fool.
