What were those guys doing in the woods?   It looks like a section was edited out.

  Clearly a film made by a Ural dealer or owner egging the H-D into a duel.  It pointed out all the features the Ural had that Harley didn't.  Not that Ural is a bad machine but very unevenly matched display at best.  Surprising it was a German clip, since Germans basically are very fond of H-D's.  As far as the edited spot, it was a surprise that only the drivers went to the bathroom.  Will.

I got sucked into YouTube video hades and watched a REALLY cool video of a K-750 Dnepr doing a Louis and Clarke expedition though the woods and waters .... It's hard to beat a pig-iron lump of a Russian motorcycle for that kind of adventure. I'm here to tell you, too - a Royal Enfield bike is not at all uncomfortable on rugged terrain, either! Our beloved little Enfields are QUITE tough ......... I've heard  ::)
Spare the pig iron - spoil the part!

  Exactly the reason I want to find a 350 Bullet, make another dirt/hill climber to run in the woods.  Seems like a logical choice in machines.  Will.
