Scrounger,

The pelicans are mounted via Caribou racks. Very nice, highly recommended.

DD,

Idaho is a great place to ride. Come on over sometime and I will take you on a tour.

Ok,
Everyone is a Noob at one point or another. After riding Honda XR's and HD Street bikes, I got the itch to try something new. The Uly is just the ticket. This pic is from my first "real" outing on the bike. With just over 400 mi on the bike, it was time to test it out.
Total trip length was 400 miles.
Main leg was 200 mile trip with only 26 on pavement, one tank of fuel, just me and the Uly. (no one to ride with in this area) Wrong turn three times even with GPS, one crash and a big %&^ smile when the 6hrs was over. Looking forward to future rides anywhere, anytime possible.

Great info on this forum. I will try to load the route.

A small sample of what British bikers get up to at weekends(incl. Buell pics!)

Ulyrat and I (plus mates) at the Soggy Moggy (Tiger mcc) rally last weekend in Godmanchester,Cambridgeshire,UK.

For all you Buell Hoolies,a noisyest exhaust comp.(only 108db from a Uly with a Remus can sans removeable baffles (the winner got 125ish db-not sure what it was),I was robbed due to where they measured it from-back wheel/most bikes cans exit level with the wheel,not in front like ours-good laugh anyway).

A small burn-out.

Group shot,Eana mcc.

A 'tired and emotional' Hoon near the end of an exceedingly good Sat on the piss.










Have we now seen the muddiest Uly? (A few posts back )
Keep up the good work Ulyfans.

Hoon - that is NOT how you get a bike raked.

I didn't even KNOW you could burn out on grass - well that sort of grass anyway.

When this scorp is cactus baby.

It would really be worth your time if the Packers were playing the Bears. It's always so much fun to watch the Bears beat up on those cheesheads.

Yeah - It's Aussie for 'dicking with the front end'.

In my journalistic pursuits when the topics of efeects of 'rake and trail' come up in interviews - I nod and people assume I have the slightest idea I know what they are talking about. I'm just coming to grips with wheelbases.

And - well la de bloody da!

I shall communicate in a less colloquial manner forthwith, and paraphrase thus:
I say old chap - when this particular Pirelli scorpion sync tyre is close to spent I shall attempt to find a locale, suitably parched, in which to replicate your splendid endeavours. Earnest respects.

Forsooth, Mr. Danger, thou woulds't certainly find thine arse to be sore from a journey of such magnanimous proportions.
