If anyone takes you up on the offer, let me know and we can meet up. If I had some hack experience and more time, I'd roll the Ural out there for you and back. The idea of piloting a strange and unruly craft through Chicago traffic makes me a bit uneasy. Plus, I'll be burning some slab through Ohio and I'm not sure how the Ural would handle that.

I do but my time and gas budget is pretty restricting.

Not sure how I could get it down here to Indy ahead of time to get acquainted before DOOM. Plus, I think it would double my gas budget. I get about 44mpg on the XJ.

The trick would be to put that Yamaha motor in the Ural.

Scooter rally hasn't been the same since some yahoos showed up and broke a mothetfucker's face a few years back, now they don't let us have any fun.

We may have a hack for DOOM. I was looking at used motorcycles online because Mrs. Skkot has shown an interest, and I came across a 2002 R1150 well attached to something solid, and all in an aesthetically pleasing (to Mrs.) color. She could fit two poodle carriers in it. Going to look at it Monday. :)

Cool! If I get the hack, the PKM will be available as a loaner. I also have a staging area 45 minutes or so from DOOM

Rench, now I know exactly what you meant. The hack is weird, and the hack is fun. What you see before you are two bottles of Buffalo Trace White Dog wheated mash whiskey sitting in an ARMEC sidecar attached to a 2002 R1150R. One bottle is to drink in your honor this DOOM, and the other I hope to share with you and Mk3 at DOOM 2016.

Thank you! I don't have nearly the death-grip today that I had on the bars yesterday (not sure of the appropriate verb here - driving, riding, piloting?) the hack back from Bob's BMW. :D

I expect to be proficient with the sidecar in time for DOOM, which means the Ural need not winter over in the East, and the PKM (2004 R1150 GS) could be arranged as a loaner for someone flying in.

That, good sir, is a thing of beauty in every measurable way. :mrgreen:

And yes, the death grip does subside after a while. I believe "pilot" is the vernacular.

Really, just spend a lot of time with it. Since you're already a very experienced rider, you'll adapt pretty quickly. The trick will be going back to 2 after you've gotten used to steering the hack, and then back and forth between the both of them.

Thanks, all, and yes, it does have electric start :mrgreen: Only thing woogly seems to be the left turn signal relay in the car. Rode it all around yesterday, including a trip up the curvy mountain rode to Hagerstown via Thurmont & Smithsburg. It does 80 mph ok, but the side and back roads are most fun. I was going to garage it today and pick the 2-wheeler back up from work, but I may immerse myself in this machine a little longer to make sure it sticks. I know I'm getting used to it because by yesterday afternoon I wasn't putting my leg down at stops.

Ha! That's a big difference. Can you fly the chair yet? It's not just goofing, its good to know how and when that happens as part of the riding style. I've gotten the chair so far up I can start turning left on 2. The Ural board fellas had nothing to say to me when I was asking for any ways to alleviate the hard contact when leaning left. :mrgreen:

-Rench
To some extent, but I mostly disagree. In my experience it's kind of like adapting to using a GP style shift, riding an older pre-standard bike (right shift, left rear brake), riding a scooter with hand shift, or even going back to riding a bicycle with the "backwards" hand brakes... once you get "fluent" at it, it gets compartmentalized and while you need to make that mental shift, it's kind of like putting on a different pair of gloves.

...or maybe that's just me. *shrug*

So far I haven't flown the car. I'm driving around with 3 sandbags in it for ballast, and it's fairly low & wide so I'm not likely to do it unintentionally. I do intend to try it at some point, when I find an empty parking lot to mess around in.

Just start turning right in a nice big circle and slowly increase the throttle. I guarantee it'll happen eventually. :mrgreen: Before you know it you'll be popping it up on every right hand turn just to see how long you can hold it.
