I would highly recommend OVC in Hillsburg Ontario for you to visit and deal with Andy. Its not that far from you, and they are great guys there. Its a small location working out of an old gas station in town. They are Ural and RE guys there. He imports fully restored 350's and sells them at a around $4500. I hung out there for a few hours bending their ears about the C5 and found them to be a great resource. He even has sidecars and short mufflers in stock too!

http://www.uralontario.ca is the website

... and if you want to see some motorcycles dissapear before your very eyes at their location, scroll the streetview down the street a click and see bikes disappear before your very eyes.

میں نہیں چاہتا کہ ایک اچار
میں صرف اپنی موٹر سائیکل پر سوار کرنا چاہتے ہیں

That's the place I was going to drop in to visit - as soon as my feet unfreeze.

They look like Sportmax Rockets on Urals and the one on the left is a Kymko Xciting 500 Scooter. Check out their website for better pictures of them.

Hi Guys,

     Turns out that I have a pretty decent dealer.

     I am glad I did not slag my dealer by name. They turned out to be quite helpful. Had they not replied to my query I would have been disappointed. Their explanation made sense and they may have told me the same thing when I bought the bike but I was too busy fondling it to listen.

     I respect sales people (Dealers) who are patient with clients who make mountains out of molehills and reply without highlighting the fact that they were not paying attention the first time they were told.

     So, thanks to my Dealer for taking the time to respond to my questions while I was spinning for no real good reason.

     Thanks also to the forum administrators who did not have a seizure after I started the knd of thread that most often leads to no good.

     I am going to be quiet now, change my name and post somebody else's photo in my profile.
 :-\

You'll find this forum is more about solving problems that quashing people's concerns ;)  Our hosts are quite gracious.  Glad it worked out.

And that two tone Euro sidecar is sweet looking!

Hi Guys,

I still say they're a bunch of so-and-sos, but I'm glad they're going to sort it out for you.

Reminds of a small bike mechanic I used to deal with.  The owner and his chief mechanic were the most amazing guys who would go above and beyond - the third guy there was just....a liability, to put it nicely.  I guess sometimes it's just who you deal with.  (And before anyone says it, yes, I know, sometimes it's just the customer, too.   ;D  )
