This was of the not so successful attempts, I was doing just fine until the snow packed UNDER the rig and lifted the front end up and floated the rig on the skid plate and underside of the tub.



This was about five years ago, again doing OK until the cylinder caught the snow and pulled me into the snow bank, two wheel drive and reverse in such situations are a very nice thing.



Yeah, that's 15 inches or more of water, made it through but I wouldn't want to make a habit of it.



Side slopes, yes done a few of those.



Done some pretty steep grades, gets a bit harry sometimes.



Welcome to ADV-Rider and the hacks forum, post of some photos of your rig in action we like seeing folks do crazy stuff.


Dude, whats the story on that hill climb? Thats frigin awesome!!!!
Was the clutch "smoakin" when you got to the top?

Howdy planzman,

The clutch that was and still is in the rig at the time that photo was taken was if everything goes well and the "company" plan proceeds as I have been told will become a production item within the foreseeable future. No, it was not smoking or slipping, I really hope this new experimental disk soon becomes avlilabe to everyone, it really is that MUCH better then the old disks.

Biged also posted on SS, but didn't get flamed there.Then again he didn't ask to get flamed like he did here.

One thing for sure, the folks here are more than willing to flame you when asked or tempted, and sometimes just for amusement.
Advrider is a bad place for a noob introduce themselves with braggadocio.

Howdy Roger,

I think I know "why" you gave ed the vacation, I saved the email notification of what he either posted and it was pulled or he deleted before most folks saw it. I don't think anyone was really harassing him, I know I wasn't, I was just jerking his chain for his grand entrance. Let him back in, if he plays nice I am sure we can.

I just don't believe it, thats just so awesome. (I ain't callin you out, its just so non-Ural) and I am impressed.
I have trouble climbing out from the bottom where my deer stand and feeder are, i have an inclinometer to shoot the angle, will do next time, and i have to feather the clutch to keep moving, and that means, clutch heat up. My son tried to ride out with me, like 75 yards up hill, and the rig just would not move with him in the sidecar, i had hoped to not have to drag the deer out this year, may have to build a new trail with a switch back just to keep what clutch linings i still have until the new clutch linings (when, and IF they) become available as a retrofit.
either way, go man go.

p.s. Yet another reason to Hate Mr. Cob

p.s.s. you would not happen to have a video on this amazing climb?

Cob, Just so you know, Gene and various ebay ural parts sellers are enjoying the effect you have had on my driving. 40,000 km since my first rebuild in 2011 on my 650 tourist and I am still beating it to death after seeing pics like that. I just started copying your intake so I'll quit suckin water in from the creek. I'm going to have to get one of them new fangled 2wd sebenfiddies one day soon.

Howdy Matt,

Well...................I sure wish I got a percentage on the replacement cost of all the parts folks have destroyed over the years because of imitating my three wheeled idiocy.

Hey planzman,

I also have that "special" clutch in my rig, while I don't push my rig as hard as Mr. Cob does, I can say without reservation it's every bit as good as he says.
