Patience John.... I was told this about 100 times when my rig spent more time at Gene's than my place. I was so aggravated I had the cycle trader ad filled out and was ready to hit "send" but did not.
She has been running like a champ since April and all the gremilns were exorcised. It took 3 solid months of breakdowns and trials on my "new" 2006 rig before she started running worth a Sh*t.
I still think it's a load of crap that a "new" rig has all these issues. Someone plunks down 8 - 10 grand on something... it should run.
I still gotta backup Ural. If this was my only rig, I'd be a lot more agitated.
Glaser was joking with me that since I got two rigs, I oughta tow one Ural with the other, so if one breaks I can ride the other on and tow the broken one! :lol:
Gene is shipping me new parts. They should be here tomorrow. Maybe this will cure it? :huh:
I agree with ya. For $10K folks in the US expect it to work without gremlins. Yeah, I know from time to time a lemon rolls offa the Mercedes assembly line, but that's the exception and not the rule. With Urals if you get a bike that's totally gremlin free, thats a rarity. >
I kinda knew that going in. I was hoping I would be wrong though.
None of this is Gene's doing, it's on the factory IMHO.
But I have no plans of ditching Vorona, When I do ride it, it makes me smile! :D
