I ran in to an old guy on a Harley rig a while ago who told me that he rode his hack every day because it was like every day he had his own parade. I love that description. He also told me that he absolutely was amazed at the number of total strangers who asked him to go for a ride "around the block". he said that after a while he started doing it all the time and he has met quite a few people doing it. He also would give rides to sick children through Make a Wish. Making sick kids dreams come true. At my age I've done about everything I want but I could definately see a Ural in my future!

Ya , i took a ride through the downtown area, and lots of heads were turning.

They even have an acronym for it, UDF, Ural Delay Factor

Whenever you go out, add some extra time for people stopping and talking to you

We sold them in 06, just what your refering to the Patrol, good units, but plan on changing the jets, and we did get them from the next door Harley guy, but I dont recall what size they were. after that it runs great, not good on gas, about 30-35.

Hey Luke, nice to see you again.
It was also nice to meet IronMick for the first time.

Thanks to John, Greg, Paul, and Perry for the extra miles to see me.

Next time no dirt roads, I promise

Got any pics Luke, I didn't even pull out my camera

Always a pleasure Peter. I was pleasantly surpised to meet Mick again.
Also a pleasure to meet your posse too.
I'm uploading them to photobucket now but in the meantime, check on FaceBook.

And by the way, thanks for dinner my friend.
And now the few pics I took.





Nice to meet Mick again and everyone else too.


JohnK




Ury, The Russian.


SportsterPaul.








Im only let them catch up to me so I can take their pictures.






Sprink. And what's in the opposite lanes looked sweet.




I guess I'll have to meet The Dude again, coulnt get a decent shot of him.






I let them feel better about themselves for a while and stayed back.


But I had a plan and needed to be in front.


I had to go pretty damn fast for a couple minutes to get the last few pictures. I needed to make time to make up for a ramp, a stop and park on a bridge. I was unbuckled and the camera in my hand before even stopping. But I think it was worth it.
