On the way in to the Motorcycle Show Saturday morning, I saw Doug Wothke walking on the street. I recognized him from the Horizon’s Unlimited DVD series. I waved. He waved back.He followed me until I parked the Ural. He told me he saw it on Friday night, but didn’t know who owned it. As we walked the rest of the way to the show, we talked about different bikes and his trips. He has a Dnepr at his place in Bulgaria he wants to put a Harley engine in. Cool.
The four motorcycles parked near the IMS Show above. Ural T, DualSport, Gold Wing, and my Ural Patrol.
He just finished riding to Magadan, Russia on the “Dirtster”. The Dirtster is a Harley Sportster with dirtbike suspension he made. Very cool.
Doug talking about his trip (below). The BMW isn’t his.
I had to buy the t-shirt.
Since the coat check wasn’t open when we arrived Saturday morning, I didn’t have anywhere to put my gear. He offered the corner of his booth. He’s a great guy. Check his site out.
