Yes indeed, Nanc LOVES the chair. She keeps asking me to take her out for a drive. Fiona needs an oil change and new wheel bearings. Other than that, she just keeps chugging along.

We can't make the Chelan rally this year. But, I'm leaving in two weeks for the Overland Expo outside of Flagstaff. then will be spending a week hiking southern UT looking for more Anasazi ruins. I need to get a hack that is more gravel oriented!

Is your wonderful Missuz still running/bicycling? She is a very amazing lady. We both struck gold.

That winch looks really good! Can you remount it on the back of the hack too? Need to get that black beauty back up and on the road!

not your everyday setup. previous owner had modified one of the chinese xmoto xb31 bikes into a trials bike. then thought his wife might join him if he made a sidecar for it. he did a good job of it but she wasn't interested.

On the Cherohala today at the wash out repair site.



Then met up with three dual sport riding buddies for some gravel forest service road riding.

Good on ya for getting out there and putting on some miles! So glad to see the rig is not just sitting gathering dust and taken out on Sundays for a half-hour ride.

Thanks, love riding here in the mountains of Western NC. Perfect for a Ural, lots of gravel and curves.


Out riding with some guys on their dual sports yesterday and the Ural held her own just fine.
