    I hope that Ural didn’t stay on the lazy path and just reverse engineer Chernobyl for the power plant.

    The year must have been 2001 or so. I was at a gas station in Custer, SD filling up my truck when I heard a couple of motorcycles pull in that sounded interesting (in other words, not the typical HD that permeate the Black Hills). When I finished I walked over to look at them and to my surprise they were a Honda GB500 and a Vincent Black Lightning. I chatted with the Vincent owner a bit, they were from Cincinnati and on vacation. He said that he was a member of a Vincent club there and was the only one who actually rode his bike, which struck me as kind of sad. Unfortunately I didn't have a camera with me that day so no pics....but there's no doubt that will probably be the only time I'll ever see a Vincent on the road.

    That Vincent gets ridden fairly regularly, but he has another one that is just a show piece. He also has several of the kind T.E. Lawrence died on, the Brough Superior. When men were men...

    I added a Yamaha WR450F to my stable this week. I rode it around the block a couple of times and DAYUM! does that front end get light easy. I think there will be a set of supermoto wheels in my future...

    I spent some time working on the suspension, steering bearings, painting plastics and replacing the handlebars on my old G650x this winter, then bought a house and spent every spare minute doing the basement. First real ride of the year tonight. Glorious evening here in southern Manitoba.

    Someone had a Bultaco when I was a kid—one of the adults I knew. I thought it was amazing that a bike came from Spain, and I loved the lettering on the tank. I only knew Japanese dirt bikes.

    Always loved the Spanish bikes. Had a unique sound to them.

    Bultacos were big where I grew up. My neighbor had a 350 Sherpa T and I owned a 370 Frontera for a while. They were a PITA to start though, the kickstarter was on the left side and they were notorious for 'kicking back'....a friend I met later in life broke his leg when his 175 Pursang 'kicked back' and sent his leg into the handlebar.
