This is my latest expensive purchase. I got a 2018 Ural Motorcycle with a sidecar. Yes, I still have my FZ1.



Taking my dog out for a spin:

They really are. You have to be a social person to own one too because it always sparks up a conversation where ever I go. It handles much differently than a motorcycle, so it scratches a different itch. I assume you've ridden one WileECoyote?

Yes sir I have. I worked at a bike shop that sold them as well as Moto Guzzi. I would uncrate and put them together, fluids and test ride. At the time, my daughter was 10 and she absolutely adored riding shotgun. For a demo ride, whe went offroad with the 2 wheel drive engaged. A real beast in the woods.

That looks like a HOOT! How was your track day on it? I assume on a go kart track or other small format venue?

While the board was down a bought a lot of stuff, none of it intended!

The end of July I totaled the Chevy Malibu I bought last year for my youngest to drive to school. Insurance gave me a lot for it and the used car market sucks so I bought a new Chevy Trax for my wife to drive and shuffled other vehicles around.


Then on August 10th we got hit with a storm that had 140mph winds. Had roof damage, siding damage, lost power for 8 days. Bought a Ryobi Generator with Blue Tooth.


Gives you run time left that is very accurate, also lets you monitor load and fuel level. Ran everything we needed except AC, I wouldn't have wanted to find fuel for a generator that could run my AC because everyone was out of gas also. I siphoned gas from the FZ1 and BMW and rode around the DRZ since it gets 70mpg. At this point I probably won't get a lot of of the work done on my house until spring. I need to patach the roof more to get through winter. Really like this generator though.

I also got a free chain saw as a friend had an old one that wouldn't run so he gave it to me and I fixed it up. So now I have a chain saw too.

Yes, I started a diecast model car collection over the last few months. Everything is done from home. It's an addictive hobby. And, of course, I had to make a web site out of it.
