    Lenin Still Overlooks This Russian Motorcycle Factory

    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    I like the "Rough n' Ready" look of the factory. Sort of reminds me of my workshop.

    Those are cool bikes. An ADV member who lives near me has one, and he actually trail rides it.

    Maybe order one w/sidecar, take a tour of the factory while your rig is being built, and then ride it out of there, and ride it home.
    Hmmm....You may be on to something.

    Keith has sold me on the hack concept. It'll be a matter of time before I have one.

    Thanks guys it is a lot of fun and really extends the riding to year round. Now I just need to get my Ural stripped, rust removed and repainted. Winter salt really took its toll on the old Russian girl, she may be ugly but I still love her. Of course like I keep trying to convince my wife variety is the spice of life.

    I saw one that had a shaft going to the front wheel from the left side of the engine.
    Was I on drugs, or is this true?

    We had a dealer in the next town up from us and I dropped in a ton of times to day dream about them.
