    Kent, I thought about you this weekend. I took the Ural for a couple laps around the track at Barber. I had a Harley in front of me...AND SLOWING ME DOWN. It was no fault of the motorcycle, but just a Harley rider supporting the stereotype. You need to help your HD brethren out with some riding skills. There is no reason ANYONE should get passed by a Ural on a track, especially on a right curve.

    I'll bet you don't hit that 100mi range with you on it. When we tested those, we found that they were extremely sensitive to rider weight and load. They were awesome for the grin factor, but they need significantly more range to be a viable option.

    I would consider a battery trials bike though.

    I'd find your mailbox and tag it, but then you'd have to take it somewhere else. :D

    yea, the 2013 are sposedly a LOT better than the older ones.
    that said, rode ~10 miles, and was less than 10% discharged, so by that math, should be good....
    some highway speeds, some goofing off, etc.... for commuting, I really only need ~50 miles, (30 to work, plug in at work and use their power too... )
    With 100 mile, I'd probably NOT plug in at home.. :lol3

    Excellent!

    And I know right where the new tag is and if BHW or Schnabba don't grab it, it's mine right after work...

    I like that bike. Only thing I know about it is that it's a BMW. What is it?

    It's my old crappy 92 R100GS bumblebee. It looks better the farther away you get, so try to stay as far away as possible.

    Dang. Saw the name and thought the tag had moved to Apex!!

    Looks close enough for an after work grab if it lasts that long!

    I've got to build up my file tags again. I need to get some on that side of town for sure.

    A little wet this morning. The rain seems to find me even when there's nothing in the forecast or on radar!
