Ah, Yes... Balvenie. I love just about everything they make, but have to admit I'm more of a Glenmorangie and MacAllan fan.

I was born into a Scottish family, so the "Water of Life" was introduced to me at an early age. I actually worked in the liquor business for a short while, but it was always my Father that taught me about "The Whisky" and instilled my love of single malts.

Nothing much better than a really good quality cigar and a wee dram of the whisky after a long day's ride...





That's some wonderful Glenrothes there in the pic... And yeah, yeah... I know what you're thinking... "ICE? WTF?"

But hey, it was a hot day and had been a long ride!

Got no problem with the ice. Sometimes its just nice to sip it chilled. And the cigar completes it.

Nice picture. Contains everything it takes for an epic day.

An adventure ride that ends at a nice camping spot with a view. Then a campfire with a small glass and a cigar. If alone, I soak in the quiet solitude. If with lover or friends, end the day with some chat and laughs.

Holy cow I need the weather to clear up. I know we need this monsoon crap to clear the 2 year drought. But a nice weekend would be a fair break.

Hay Pluric, I hadda Velorex sidecar on a Honda Nighthawk set up for rough stuff(offroad).Used it in snow up here ,10 inches would stop it. Always meant to screw bolts into rear wheel but never did. That Russian bike (forget it's name)has a 2 wheel drive sidecar outfit.Tempting as heck. All that snow you got down there, you ski? That's what I been doing lately, lots of snow up here. .

Laugh Ural's...

~


Personally I have absolutely zero experience with Ural motorcycles... But I do know a couple of Ural jokes.

- Ural - When you're just too pissed off at it to spell out UnReliAbLe

- Ural - Named after the mountains, because neither ever moves

- Ural - The actual mountains may be faster

Ha - you got KLRd by the sales people. Jokes on them - a lot of Tenere owners are either current or former KLR owners.

Laugh Ural-mazing...

~


Hey guys...

Note I said I had absolutely no experience with Ural motorcycles, and I've got no axe to grind against 'em. In fact, I've always thought I'd like to own one somewhere along the way. I've ridden a couple of hacks, but never owned one. Looks like it'd be fun.

I just said I knew a couple of Ural jokes, and passed 'em on... Ya' know, like...

- "Harley-Davidson - Made of tin. Ride 'em out, and push 'em in."

- BMW - B-ring M-ore W-allet

- Bultaco (or Montesa or Ossa) - Quality, with crank bearing made from the finest mahogany available

And don't get me started on Lucas electrics lines...





And I've owned Beemers and Bultaco's... And I currently own an H-D XR1200...

That's always what I thought - that they'd be a lot of fun, but low-speed, just bopping about fun.

My girlfriend's finishing up her CRNA clinicals right now, and when she's done in about a year we have plans to move to a small coastal town near here to slow down and chill out away from the city hub-bub. I've always thought a Ural hack rig would be great for just slow cruising around there and along the cool little roads that hug the bays in the area... Never getting more than a few miles from home.

Plenty of room to carry, as you say, a cooler full of beverages, or groceries, or any other Sunday afternoon relaxing gear one might wanna' carry.

It's kind of an cool, funky, eclectic place over there and I think a Ural hack rig would fit right in!

Thanks!

Dallara
