    Prmurat, thanks for the advertising... Soviet Steeds always welcomes new members and you bringing us up might encourage just that when folk who need helpful assistance in repairing their Russian rig, finding out about Russian rig gatherings, sharing ride adventures, meeting nice folk from all over the globe, looking to buy or sell Russian rig related merchandise, learning about cool modifications, and just plain helping people with their passion for motocycles. Thanks a million!!!

    I wonder if we should nominate Prmurat as a SS ambassador of good will?

    Are you really that obtuse?

    I said that I agree with you that there are some vitriolic right wingers. Unfortunatly you have obviously chosen to ignore that, and that there are also vitriolic left wingers, who both choose, like you, to condemn everyone who doesn't think exactly like you.
    Freedom of speech* goes both ways, banning only one side is censorship.The soapbox was temporary suspended because both sides went too far.

    No matter how many excuses and justifications you make, it doesn't change the fact that you are guilty of unjustly stereotyping an entire group of people on this forum.

    You seem to think this is some sort of philosophical debate, it is not, you are spreading hate and intolerance here, you are simply being called on it.

    So, let me get this straight. It is not OK for someone to judge a race by the actions of a few, but is OK for you to judge an entire group of people based on the actions of a few? I fail to see how you aren't a hypocrite.

    He's so far out in left field that he's alone in another ball park, and the only game being played is the one in his head.

    It seems that in his opinion, partisipating on S.S. makes you guilty by association even if you dont hold the oppinions he claims to abhor. I wounder why he doesn't apply the same standards here?

    The fact that he hasn't acknowledged his unjust slander of those of us who are innocent speaks volumes.

    You know Racism is a 2 way street. Seems to me the one screaming it loudest is the biggest racist here. Why don't you go back to what ever 3rd world rock you crawled out from under and save it from mankind.

    Say have you donated all those bikes you own to the less fortunate like you said you were going to on SS. Probably not considering your just a I'm PRMURAT and you the only person in the world who counts. It amazes me even San Francisco can out up with your crap. Maybe if you got a good douche you'd feel brighter.

    When I earlier stated that I enjoyed the controversy and heated discussion on this thread, I didn't mean weak and pointless accusations of racism and hatred. I was referring to motorcycle related stuff.....

    "Troll-Fu" - I had to look that up on the internet. I learned a new word today. :D

    Freedom of speech is great! I also have the freedom to listen or not to listen. If some of you don't like what's on the internet then go to another site. I assume that's also why the inventers of television and radio gave us a choice of channels.

    Then again, some people do like to yell at the rain, it's how they vent what they don't understand about themselves.

    Can we get back to Urals now?????

    I had a Honda 350 in 1972 and one time it broke down on the road and I had to pay a flatbed truck to take it it to the shop.

    All Hondas are junk. Don't buy one.

    Just saying.:lol3

    Well I'm soon to be 60. and the bike 4 years old now and its clutch is worth out I it stiuck open and slipped then it fail to open and pulled the b ike ahead . Think some thing between the plates at times. Got the engine half out but the nuts oh the headers are stuck on real good and are now rounded off . Only two to go but they do not move. Going to use heat to see if that help. One has to wonder why this is happening now, just before summer. Seem its not easy changing the clutch and the engine has to be open up to do so, unlike my old 1980 hawk , So that could be a reason not to buy one. But if you like to do your own work even when new its the b ike for you. Starting with spokes when breaking in to the clutch later on you learn to love it and trush your own work.

    N ot out riding this week or next month waiting for parts.
