  • My Story
    Bought 94 Tourist as dealer demo left over with 900km in the summer of 96. Upgraded to 750 motor and 3.89 gears in fall 2002. Bought Glen's 95 Solo 7/13/06. Plan on making some major changes to the style of the bike but it will all be bolt on so I can change it back. Hence Dr Jeckel/Mr Hyde.

Russian Bike Nut (3/3)

  1. Come on down and get your bike dirty. Our main activity is trail rideing. We'll be at the Brendan T. Byrne State Forest formerly Lebanon State forest in Pemberton NJ. 35,000 acreas of fun in the sand with another 25,000 acres of the Green Wood tract across the street. You don't need specail equipmment the standard Duros on a tourist will be just fine. A knobby on the driver helps alot. 2wd is not needed. If someone gets stuck we go "Hey 2wd Guy, get over here and hook up a tow strap." We have coffee in the camp ground. Go out for breafast in a diner. Ride all day. Do not leave the trail for lunch, bring a sandwich. Go out for diner in a diner or maybe a bar and grill. then relax aroud the camp fire. That's Saturday. Friday and Sunday are more casual. The area is flat and sandy with some water crossings. I think the high point is 90 ft above sea level. There are no rocks. Realy no rocks, I forgot a hammer once and had to pound in my tent stakes with my boot. Pick a site around bath house "A "if you are making reservations. One of our regulars has already taken a dog friendly site 17-32. "Dog friendly" area watch you step. There are Yurts avalable, a glorfied tent with a wooden floor and bunk beds, get a reservation if you want one of those. You could just come down and pick a site near the other Ural guys and avoid the extra 10 bucks for the F'n privateised resevation fee.
  2. Unfortunatly the Ghost Rider dose not ride a Ural. In the opening sequence there is a character named Monreau that rides a Ural Solo and is involved in a high speed chase. They dubbed the Ural to sound like a sport bike. Monreau gets his tires shot out and goes off a cliff, landing in a shrub like Sarge in Beetle Baily. He shows up latter riding the same bike. Ural off a cliff, no problem. Dust that off and go.
  3. The CGI was great. Taking one old real plane and making it into 4 slightly out of since in time counts as CGI and they did do a fair shair of that. I've seen stunt planes do that trick in the trailer. With a 70 year old plane that has cost millions to rebuild nobody is going to do that. When they were new and there thousands of them I bet some 20 year old pilots would do that. P-51's did take out alot more Me-262's than they should have on paper. A P-51 can do about 440 maybe 460 in level flight. An Me-262 can do about 540. But if the P-51 gets ahead and dives on the 262. The Tuskegee Airmen are credited with destroying 2 Me-262's on the same day. That being said the reviewers were right. The rest of the movie is like reading every other chapter in the middle of a book to concentrate on the action and the important pionts. It dose not realy stick together as a story. Dosen't have the narative.
  4. Not quiet fallowing you there Big James. Not finding files to the left. Are you related to Big Larry McClure?

    This opens next week on the 20th. George Lucas says this is the closest to Star Wars 7 you are going to see. It's an action movie with lots of high quality cgi airial combat. A portion of the proceeds goes to the Tuskeegee Airmen retirment fund. I am a big fan of the Tuskeegee Airmen. Here is a picture of Eugene Richardson and John L. Harrison that I had the privilage of shaking hands with.
  6. This guy was working out how to fit a weedwacker motor to it for his kid.
  7. The Siberian Speed Team was a one time only event. They set the speed record for 650 push rod motorcycles at 114mph. Taking the record away from Triumph and doing it with a sidecar attached so they were compeating against 2 wheelers. Robbie Moore, who used to run SpiTS, set the record. Steve Jackson (he started FART) gave me a patch from the team that I proudly were on my jacket. Steve only managed to wind the rig up to 104. Last I hear the world record holding rig was sitting in a garage in Redmond Washington waiting for an honorable place to display.
  8. That's Ridiculous. The farmer should owe you for damage to your vehical for letting his flipping pig get in the road. If your going to have to pay $150 for a pig you should get that pig for BBQ.
  9. I am sorry for your county's loss. I hope the actions of a madman do not turn this into a political discussion.
  10. Come on down and get your bike dirty! The Fall Jersey Devil Hunt will be Sept. 9-11 at the atsion campground in Wharton State Forest, 110,000 acres of fun in the sand. This is an informal ralley. Our main activity is trail riding. A knobby or 2wd helps but you don't realy need it. We eat out in diners. Keep the beer hiden around the camp fire, we are in a state park and you can get a hefty fine if they are hard nosed about it. Sheduel if you can call it that. Friday people start showing up in the early afternoon, early arrivals usually go for a trail ride. In the evening we go out for dinner then have beer around the campfire. Satuday coffee in the campground, leave for breakfast 9ish, have a big breakfast then go trail riding. Most of the time we don't stop for lunch. Bring snacks or a sandwich if you think you'll want something before dinner. We ride util late afternoonish. regroup at the campground and go out to dinner. followed by campfire. Sunday those that don't leave early usualy repeat satuday schedual untill the early afternoon.
  11. I bought this battery charger last year. I think I used it twice. Now as soon as I attach it the indicator light says Charged. The battery was reading 10.2 volts. Touching the multitester to the incoming charger reads 13.3 volts so it's actually charging something. After a couple of hours I'm up to 11.4 volts one the battery. It is charging but I cannot trust the automatic shut off. I called thier customer service line. Pressed 3 for "Technical Support". All they were interested in was did I have a reciept. This is not a technical support line. They only do returns and don't know squat. The Charger is a SCHUMACHER SEM-1562A 6V-12V 1.5amp Slow Charge. I give the charger a 1 out of 10 because it worked per directions the first time and seems to still be charging even though the indicator lighs say otherwise. I give their "Technical Support" a big fat ZERO out of 10. It is a lie to call them technical support.
  12. There is a high probability that I'm coming. Both my bikes need a little sorting out. I'll probably have both going this weekend. Either way I'll be trucking one of them if it's running. I'm bowing out on the ride in. I wish I could, Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge parkway is the best riding ever invented. I don't trust the Tourist enough for a 600 mile each way ride after new camshaft and timing gears plus a Sert I'm putting in this weekend and the Solo has no carring capasity.
  13. I had the privilage of shoot video frome Bob's side car ad the JD hunt 3 weeks ago. Here is Bob attempting to mak a hill with me weighing him down. Here is Bob making it up that hill after I got out. He is riding a 96 Tourist with to original 650 motor. He and his son rebuilt that motor in a weekend after he blew a main bering last year.
