    Came back home....

    Well I haven't had a T-Dub for awhile, thought I needed BIGGER.
    After going the bigger route found I really missed the TW. So I just traded for one of Plumbstraight's fleet of TW's.
    Now I am off to making the bike fit my needs [can't leave nothing alone]. I found the bigger dual sports were great in the power department, but just plain TO HEAVY to be a lot of fun off road.
    I am excited to be back in the TW world. Here are a couple of the ones I have had:

    It was a GearUp model Ural with 2 wheel drive. Sadly.....it was a POS. I really wanted to like it. It was HORRIBLE quality. Extremely poorly made.
    It went away! My dog however loved it.20161116_193918.jpg20170202_195807_zpsbn0tau7x.jpg20170202_195731_zpsctvncr7e.jpg

    The scariest bike of them all was the "little orange one" BRUTAL POWER that scared the crap out of me. It was the Yamaha RD350. It would launch the front wheel at just about any speed if you were not careful with the throttle.

    I was going to say, Sweet RD! My first street bike was a 1976 RD-400, and yes, it was wheelie prone.

    What year was your Ural? I love mine. One of the longest term relationships I've had with a motorcycle ever. Twelve years just passed from new a few days ago.
    Gone are many Harley's, Honda's, Kawasaki's and "Zuki's.
    Mine is a Carbie 2007 Patrol.

    The transformation has begun...
    Disassembled and all maintenance brought up to date. New HD front and rear springs [gotta love Procycle :=], pro-taper handle bars, gps mounts and power points, folding short levers, LED head light, LED driving lights, spaced up fender, head light guard, trunk, Clark Tank. Still to do, new rear tire and LED tail light.

    I had a 79 RD400 Daytona Special with Micron pipes - an incredibly fun bike to drive and I still regret selling it to this day. Replaced it with an 86 RZ500 when I got back from Germany in 96. Picked it up on a Friday of a long weekend, drove it for the three days, and put it up for sale on Tuesday - that was one scary bike and I knew it was going to end badly. The local Yamaha dealer was kind enough to take it as a trade-in for a 97 XT350. That too was a fun bike, just not fun to start (either it would start 1st kick or the 20th, with nothing in between). Eventually sold that and went on bike hiatus until I bought my 2014 TW new in 2015. In retrospect, would have been a lot better had the Yamaha dealer just sold me a TW back in 97! All that to say... WELCOME BACK!
