RPOC

Been thinking awhile about a more economical vehicle for my grocery supply runs.  Something with character, perhaps.  Several friends of mine have Russian Ural motorcycles with side cars.  My friend Jim Wright up in Marathon recently decided to sell his and I just couldn't pass it up.  Good for rugged off-roading and street legal too.  Took a drive north today with two "foilheads"(Chuck and Jessie) to check it out and seal the deal.  Don't worry Ara  http://theoasisofmysoul.com/ , I wont be getting a pit bull....and no - Benita will not fit in the sidecar.  64,79,35,0,C

Way to go, John. Those Urals are so cool. They have character in spades. Glad you jumped in.

Ok Hwa and I came by today. You weren't home, so we left a note on your door. Will try again tomorrow.

If you don't have a Tx motorcycle endorsement on your license you need to get one quick. Great idea for quick trip transport.

John, These are great BMW "sisters". They have been proven in several different arenas. You will love it. Is yours a 1 or 2 wheel drive? 2 helps in the loose stuff, especially if you take Benita along.

Careful now, John. Next thing you know the Two Fat Ladies will roar up your driveway, dismount, and, Bob's your uncle, cook you a fabulous meal. :)
