after 70k of road they stopped by the factory for a gasket... but were treated to a complete tear down and rebuild!
On his epic summer adventure Mihai and his family recently visited our factory in Irbit to see where his Ural was born.
Unknown to him we had arranged for his bike to get a full work through, giving it some love after over 70,000 kilometers on the road.
"I told them I only needed a gasket for my alternator and the small switch to turn on the rear brake lights. Then in 30 minutes my bike was completely apart and the guys started replacing all sorts of stuff on it.
I was there with my eyes wide and could not believe what is going on... I kept adding up the parts in my mind, counting everything they replaced, and started freaking out at what it would cost..."
"They saw my face and started smiling. Relax! It's on the house!
We stood there in disbelief, really, it's beyond my ability to put into words... it's the biggest surprise I've had since I bought the bike. I just want you to know that this means a lot to us, and we are deeply thankful for this. I still can't believe what happened. A thousand thank you's for that, and I still feel it's not enough."
It's original owner died, and his widow sold it. But, she sold it to a unlucky guy whose wife is a total PITA, who refused to love this car because it wasn't her shade of red.
Seriously, she told her husband to get her a red classic Mustang. When he found this perfect in all regards 67, she refused to drive it due to it's color - and he had to sell it, it then spent 8 months on a used car lot.
Then the woman above, Monica, bought it and took it on a trip from her home in Connecticut to her dad's home in Seattle
Some say that all of those signs have the same default password. They rarely get changed, because so many people have to use them. And it is easy to reset the module to the default.
others say Utah DOT has control interfaces that a central dispatch uses to update these overhead signs. They run all up and down the I15/215 corridor. They're used to alert of accidents and as of lately, little catches phrases. All done remotely on a computer, they cannot be set by the side of the road. Updates have to be called in.
In 1969, Art Nordstrom built a one-of-a-kind Ford 8N tractor used to push-start sprint cars. It was a staple around Garretson, S.D.-area racetracks from 1969 until the last Cheater’s Days race at the Sioux Empire Fair Racetrack in the early 1990s. Art also was an official at Huset’s Speedway and Interlakes Speedway and the tractor was his way to get to the wrecks fast. During races, Art would fly down the back stretch or front stretch going at speeds up to 100 miles per hour, putting on a show for the crowds. With his wife and kids, he spent every summer weekend at the track.
Art was inducted into Huset’s Hall of Fame in 2010 for his work with the Street Stock Class and racing and promotion of racing in the Midwest. The Nordstrom kids had the tractor retrieved from the shed, where it had lain dormant for 10 years, and surprised their Dad with it at the racetrack.
A mother, father and their 6-year-old son were returning from a trip to Disneyland when, according to the survivors’ family, a man in a pickup truck turned a corner, smashed into their car and sped off.
The crash happened on a Saturday in San Ysidro (San Diego's southern most area on the border with Tijuana) The family was a block away from its home when their car was struck by a truck that blew a stop sign.
The 6 year old spent 3 weeks in the hospital with a fractured skull, and returned home. His child safety seat was the most impacted location of the car.
Royal Oak, MI – The Royal Oak City Commission unanimously voted to make it a civil infraction to have music or noise coming from vehicles that can be heard 50 feet away. The penalty for exceeding the noise limit is a $100 ticket.
Royal Oak is a hotspot for motorcyclists and people with souped-up rides, particularly in the summertime as Woodward Avenue is lined with people out car-watching and Downtown is filled with visitors.
The City of Royal Oak, which is centrally located during the Dream Cruise, received complaints from these residents. They also heard complaints of the motorcycles that frequent downtown Royal Oak on Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
In response to the complaints, in July of 2016 the city council passed a loud vehicles ordinance, under their disorderly conduct statute (Sec. 278-35(q), that states that any unreasonable noise that is plainly audible at a distance of 50 feet that disturbs the peace and quit of other persons is subject to a civil infraction and a fine. If, in the officer’s opinion, the noise causes “public danger, alarm, disorder or nuisance” the penalty is a misdemeanor and a fine up to $300.
This ordinance is plain violation of the state law that states a vehicle shall not be operated on a highway with a speed limit greater than 35 miles per hour if the total noise exceeds 82 DBA at a distance of 50 feet.
State law also plainly states that any city ordinance that is not identical to the state statute is unenforceable (MCL 257.707e(2).
City attorney Mark Liss said the new ordinance was modeled after one in Farmington.
“We have always had an excessive noise ordinance, but it was a misdemeanor punishable by a $500 fine and required proof that someone was exceeding decibels of acceptable noise,” Liss said. “The police department only had one piece of equipment to use to obtain those findings.
On Aug. 15, divers contracted by Michigan Department of Transportation to clear a pond of barrels of unknown origin found what seems to be a 73 Buick Electra 225 with human remains inside at the waters' bottom.
By the week's end, forensic scientists will examine the remains to determine who the person was, police said.
The man-made, 20-foot-deep pond is located between I-75 and Saginaw Auto Recyclers.
It was created sometime during the construction of the nearby Zilwaukee Bridge, said MDOT spokesperson Jocelyn Hall. That time frame places the pond as being built between 1979 and 1988.
this makes the 5th car I've posted about that was found underwater with a body in it...
A 69 Coronet was pulled out of a Florida canal, two teens went off a road after a concert in 78.
A lake in Oklahoma had a couple cars pulled out, both had simply went straight instead of around the corner, a 69 Camaro and a 55 Chev, bodies still inside.
And a 68 Catalina missing since 72 in a fishing lake in North Carolina

Yesterday an issue was found with 'a pin' in the Hawker Hurricane's Rolls Royce Merlin engine.
The BBMF said the plane, along with its iconic Spitfires and Lancaster Bomber which share the same engine, would not be flying as a 'precaution'.
The fault has already caused huge disappointment for hundreds of thousands of 'warbird' fans hoping to see the BBMF, which takes its planes all over the country during the summer.
He said: 'A routine inspection has highlighted a fault with one of the Merlin engines in a Hurricane aircraft.
'We are currently investigating the fault and as a precaution, flying of Merlin engine powered aircraft has been paused.
