Last Ural Ride

last ural ride

Yesterday was a beautifully clear day with the temps climbing into the mid-twenties. The Ural’s wind protection and my heated gear kept me warm and toasty. The days are getting longer now!

It was also my last ride on the Ural. The last ride on my Ural for 2011 that is! You thought I was selling it? Nope, not yet. Still having too much fun with it.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!

PS: I will be riding something else…


  1. You had me wondering...

    Yay! The days are getting longer. That means winter is over, right?

  2. Chris:

    I was wondering about your Last Ride too.

    Merry Christmas to you

  3. RichardM: yup, no more Ural until 2012. might ride something else though... *wink* Yea, winter is mostly over ;) haha.

    Dom: Merry Xmas. will hopefully be riding something else before 2012 ;)

    Bob: Merry Xmas :)

  4. Love that pic, Chris. It makes me think you're heading off to take on some great adventure. You know, riding off into the sunset.

    Merry Christmas!

  5. Beautiful photo. Brilliant with the sun hovering in the sky.

    Who'd guess it was that chilly outside.

    Happy Holidays and the best to you in 2012.

  6. You almost got me... can't imagine you parting with the Ural (just yet). Happy Holidays to you and be safe out there!

  7. The thought of you parting with the Ural never entered my mind . . . I was just hoping it hadn't gone nuclear.

    Merry Christmas and ride on.

  8. Chris,

    Winter is almost over? Those are bold words from a Minnesotan yet to face February if I've ever heard them. You do winter riding right, though, always prepared. Don't keep up waiting too long, what're you hiding?

  10. fuzzy: So perceptive :)

    Trobairitz: Happy holidays to you and yours.

    SonjaM: Thanks! Happy holidays to you and yours.

    Keith: ural seems quite reliable lately. probably just jinxed it now.

    Brady: Wishful thinking eh? A strange winter in MN. temps in swinging wildly from 20-50F. I learned the hard way to be prepared. the first winter of riding was a harsh teacher. New post up.

    len: thanks. I love the pic as well. happy new year!
