I wonder if she sits back there, looks at them spikes and wonders "what if?"

OTOH.....How about the blower on the bike! Spends big money and has shit for gear.

Nah, he will lay her down before he needs to make a quick or sudden stop.

I'll be here for six months. Our grass needs cutting.



Got it all unloaded and went for a ride before the rain came today. Dogwoods are still blooming.



Rode down the mountain to see my friend Jim Tom (aka moonshiner) at Thunder Mountain Store on 143.
First ride for me on my Ural on gravel and she likes it. Nice to be in the land of curves and elevation changes.
I'll hit the Dragon on my way to a sidecar get together at Iron Horse close to Stecoah tomorrow.
Don't worry, I'll use the turn outs unlike some yahoos.

For sure, and he looks like the real deal.

I did a quick and dirty search for "war pig" via Google and turned up a mishmash of hits, many about a Ural. I seems to recall that this guy has an interesting story...

Body position was horrible, bad lines, I expected to see the low side several times before he actually finally lost it. He kept trying to sit up straight and just lean the bike... He was obviously riding someone else's ride.
