I still love my Dnepr, even after rebuilding the engine and trans all myself with parts off eBay, and from Napa. I still love my Dnepr ( her name is Anastasiya ) even after a day of repairing lots of little electrical problems. I am still in love with Anastasiya in spite of her weird way of not quiet going down the road straight, of veering left when decelerating,tending to go right under hard throttle, wobbling , wiggling, and her way of turning completely different right from left. I am kinda a little put out that Anastasiya really likes me to bring someone else along on our little forays. I was warned about some of the sounds that tend to come from this Ukrainian breed, to me it is the music of old technology and being one with the ghost in the machine. I am used to people's reaction to my riding classic motorcycles, but this one attracts a much wider range of onlookers from very small kids to men and woman of all ages and from all corners of the world. A little more refined crowd, seasoned in the ways of ying and yang. I am proud to call my self a owner of a obscure usable piece of mechanical history from a far away exotic land of titans. My arms hurt from trying to control the unexpected gymnastics of the handlebars. My legs feel like I have been riding a horse, but you couldn't remove the grin from my face with tactical nuke! I think my other bikes are going to get a long deserved rest now that Anastasia is good to go!
