    You don't sound happy about this.
    What is the reason for the sale?
    Specs & price?

    Well I'm finally at a point in life where I have the free time for the loooong trips I have been planning for 20+ years.I do love the rig but my wife wants to ride her own bike on these long trips so the rig just doesn't get used that much.I also commute on 2 wheels everyday and 60-70 mpg's sounds real good!.
    We are heading up to Deadhorse in June and would like to have the NC by then.No it won't get hacked,maybe sometime in the future I will have the means to get the Ural 2wd I want !!.

    So MAYBE I will be keeping the outfit !!.
    My wife REALLY wants me to keep it so if I can swing the payments on the new bike without selling it I will keep it.
