Thanks!  I really like it.  It has that old school BMW look.  I wish there was more pinstriping, fenders etc.

One of the Ural's has a telescopic fork, some nice accents, and old school striping on gloss black paint.  It's also lower than all the other models, not meant for off road, and it handles nicer from what I've heard.  Sadly, I saw one up close and it was tape striping, not paint.  For what they charge I think it should be painted.

Is your tank at a dealership ?

Gremlin - not yet.  My tank is still on my bike, which is still in my garage with a sheet on it.  But a new tank and new badges (the 2011 style) are in the works.  I believe the plan is to send the old tank and badges back to the factory as an example...

I like the looks of the B5 with sidecar.  Boy it sure would be nice to have a RE dealer in the neighborhood.  Nearest dealer with any inventory is 200 miles away.  Never seen a B5 in wild.

Oh well, here comes the boss, better get back to work.

Thanks for posting this and I'm glad I did a forum 'search' as I was just about to post the same links!

Looks pretty cool to me. It's actually pretty nice.

I think the badges are actually the same, minus the reflective red tape and color of course. I doubt they would come up with a new form/stamp for badges.

Damn, they could paint these bikes hot pink with chartreuse stripes and they'd still look great.

I still prefer the classic look of gold on black.

Godspeed!

Ya, I know it's slow. But I've always been a little slow. (budump bump!)
