    Hey guys,

    I`ve recently come home from the '2008 Ural Pilgrimage' where I visited the Ural factory,borrowed a new 2 wheel drive Ural Gear Up,attended the Irbit Motorcycle Show and then spent a week riding off road and rough camping.

    I think this Pilgrimage has been featured on the site before.....but if anyone is interested I`ll spend a while one evening writing up a Ride Report.

    Hi....Yes some of us are new members of this website, and would really like to hear a report of your resent visit and rides. I will never be able to go out there for a visit, so a first hand account would be just brilliant.

    Best regards.....Johnny W.

    You never step in the same river twice, and no ride is ever the same ride. Please do up a ride report, looking forward to it!

    Yes but I have a good excuse :evil

    I had to feed a USMC detachment from Whidbey island today. 500+ from Boeing tomorrow and 1,200 National guard shipping out to Iraq next Tuesday. The troops eat for free, Boeing pays. Saturday I have to teach a BBQ class. The boss/wife of 20 years has been keeping me out of trouble since I got back.

    The final drive held up fine with regular checks and a quart of wally world gear lube in the hack. The left exhaust pipe came out but that was easy to put back in. The right had not yet gone forward but did need tightening.

    As soon as I get the pictures through Photoshop I'll post a ride report.

    Sorry about the delay guys...I AM going to write the report VERY soon.

    The delay is due to my having to provide holiday cover in work...my rostered set of six 6am - 2pm shifts have become seven 6am - 6pm shifts in a row. I`ve not quite felt like spending several hours at my PC when I get home.

    Watch this space after Sunday though :deal :deal
