Sorry I didn't get back to you,I'm in Vermont it's pouring rain and your my entertainment haha. I did buy my Ural from Ural of New England. So far there service has been great. They replace the clutch lever twice this time 2014 upgrade and windshield I paid a little extra upgraded after market windshield. I also have BMW K 1200LT big difference. I can't fine any rig riders in my area. I'm very new to side cars only one year this July. I'm doing very good with it but would like a rider course. I'll be70 in Oct. so need all the Help I can get. Your rig is a sportster ? How does that handle ?

The sportster does ok, my first rig was an old kz650 which was underpowered. I put the sportster rig together a year and a half ago. So far so good. I use an electronic shifter on it because I'm a left leg amputee. The bike has plenty of power with 1200cc and a screaming eagle stage one kit.
There is a sidecar rally in central ma near palmer in a few weeks. We should take a ride out for a couple of hours. Let me know if you want yo meet up in ct and ride up. We can take backroads into sturbridge and then run rt20 the rest of the way. The rally is at camp stanica and is on the26th through the 28th but you can go in on saturday for 5 bucks so it sounds worth while.

No, I lost it in a head on collision with a distracted driver in an suv. I agree about the technology for our vets being a blessing though.

The weather should clear for you before you leave. Are you taking backroads or freeway home? Urals seem to like backroads better.

Don, I got a new tube set for the Zodiac. Looks almost new. I rode my Suzuki Burgman 400 (with dog) from Maryland to Essex. Quite a trip.

No got them from Defenders, apparently the set available in the world at that time. The guy in Essex, who I think you recommended did the installation. Great job...really good guy.
