Russian Bike Nut (3/3)

  1. I found the same as Ragman. my mileage increased with windscreen. Just tested my 2007 Patrol..26.5 mpg My 2005 tourist used to get between 28-31 depending on passenger or not
  2. Here are some pics. I just noticed that even though this CJ has been in my bike barn under cover there is a little surface rust on the spokes and a few other places. I do have matching rattle can spray . Mostly just dusty. If interested do not be afraid to make and offer. Thanks Kevin
  3. Scrinch, I this just a sidecar? You don't have a CJ bike to go with it do you? Chris No just the hack. I do have a Honda CB750 that I was working on to marry it to. It is pretty much at the reassemble stage but just don't have time. Looked at a few BMW's R90's but ended up just going for the Ural Patrol instead. Rather ride than wrench.
  4. I should be able to muster up a few shots tomorrow
  5. Thanks all.... You still running that CJ Chris? I gotta give you lots of credit cause I know you drive it summer and winter. Yu guys from that side of Maine are a tough breed. Well the Raven fell through but undaunted, I had a back up plan, so am getting a 2007 Patrol Wed out of Ct. It is much closer than going to Philly and a better bike Can't wait
  6. Sold my 2005 Tourist , bought a Harley Road King Classic with Liberty sidecar, then ended up in a Toyota MR2 Spyder . Long to short.... the MOST FUN was in the Ural so I just recently bought a Raven 2006. I am going to pick it up this week in Pa and can't wait to get back in the Ural saddle. Glad to be back !!
  7. SOLD I have a rebuilt --refurbished CJ sidecar that I don't need any more. It was a project bike situation but ran out of steam and time to finish it. Also if anyone is interested 1980CB 750..Rebuilt carbs lots of parts Spare wheels $1600 takes it all. or $1300 for the sidecar alone. I live in Midcoast Maine so realize I am a long way from anywhere, but pick up the rig and have a vacation at the same time !
  8. I am interested and right next door to you in Midcoast Maine. Let's set up a time to look at the bike and talk. Scrinch AKA Kevin White
  9. I have seen a number of these around here but IMHO they are BUTT UGLY. Also are these made by the same people that make SKI DOO snow machines? If so, after my experience with one of those I wouldn't want one from a mechanical standpoint either. Just my 2 cents worth.
  10. You are missing all the fun of going out in 0 degree weather, pulling the enrichers, giving the starter a short blurp and listening to that cold sleeping beastie come to life. Then you know that you got it tuned right! :thumbsup!:
  11. Thanks for the heads up on that IceQueen. Wow 10 outa 6 isn't a great percentage. Sounds like my 70's VW days when I kept two or three engines around just to keep one VW bug on the road.
  12. Old Ural habits die hard. I have noticed on the Harley Road King I still : Try to turn it off with a non existent key near the head light Try to find neutral by pushing on the non existent reverse lever. Shift by picking my foot all the way off the floorboard and pressing firmly on the rear of the shift rocker Haven't passed a car Haven't gone over 60 mph Worry about noises that I have not noticed before. :thumbsup!:
  13. Yesterday we turned our Ural 2005 Tourist over to Mark Allen. We will be riding a Harley Road King w sidecar from now on. But, every time I jumped onto the Ural I would again fall in love with her. She was just a really fun bike and I would have kept her if time , space, and money allowed, but I feel good knowing her new owner will take care of her and have a great time. May the force be with you, and ride safe.
