Sheldon’s second 1998 Sportsman

Saturday, October 6, A lot has changed since my last Check out my other diaries at:

to see just what has been on in my life since then. But one is for sure: The more things the more they stay the or another cliche, things go circle.

Those who have me for awhile know that my Ural was a 1998 Ural two-wheel-drive, O.D. Green, my was a 1998 Deco Classic and my one was a 2003.5 Patrol two-wheel-drive look almost exactly my original Sportsman, well for the machine-gun mount and replica Machine-gun.

I had sold first my and then my beloved Guzzi rig Sputnik sidecar frame and police sidecar, (all customized) because I now have Polio Syndrome and riding than about twenty at a time causes massive and the catch 22 is that if I take the meds I can’t ride or I could no longer justify $30,000 tied up in motorcycles to be able to go to the grocery store as now living on Social Security Such is life.

At 6:00 p.m. last a 1998 Ural Sportsman, exactly like my first with only 4,800 on it showed up in my driveway. Really a bit of a Turns out that Dell at St.

Harley/Ural in New Richmond WI couldn’t the idea of my not having a bike and pity on me. He’d picked ’98 up at a very good and made it available to me in a deal was so, so very low that I just not pass it up. Practically gave it to me, and IS in the literal sense. He certainly is one of the guys in my book. For being ten years old the darn thing is like new.

He even threw a set of the tractor in the trunk. To me the bench seat looks quite right on a so I’ll be swapping it out right Dell sent someone all the way to to pick it up, then had to re-wire of it, put on new carburetors as the original ones had swapped for the Russian Federation and he replaced the generator with the alternator and electronic ignition.

He did a bunch of work to get it running, but the runs like a sewing and everything feels tight. I went out to start it awhile ago it on the first kick.

I won’t be to ride long distances I could before, but for taking for rides around going to the grocery store, and general winter goofing off it is to be a blast.

One can’t even how, after 42 years of not having a bike for a whole tore at me. Seeing my friends at was wonderful, but not being able to go with them really and seeing the thousands of bikes pass my house any weekend day brought tears to my eyes a few The doctor bills have depleted my retirement funds and a fun car was a little bit of a relief but I really think that I’d be up on a again. But.

Life is good.

Probably the best to be bopping around on ten old tires so I’ll swap out in the spring, although before I will probably put a set of knobbies on for I’ve got a pair of leg protectors but have the brackets but it shouldn’t be too to work some of them up. I’ll have to look to see if I can find a pair of hand

I had an extra set but gave them to the new when I sold my Patrol. It is missing the gas can from the side of the so I’ll have to snag one of to have the right look. We are in for fun

Oh, and it needs to be cleaned. Looks it has been sitting for awhile and it is with dust and some soil on the tires. Cleaning hasn’t been something I do a good reason, as I used to show bike and cars and had my fill of cleaning with brushes, which is just one of the reasons I was drawn to the Urals. A amount of patina on them seems to make them better.

This bike even with the optional cylinder rust and I didn’t have to pay for it.

I’m glad to be back in the fold. Gotta run. I to line my hat with foil going riding.
