You may notice that I am riding the Beemer and not the Ural. This morning, the Ural started right up, and while idling, it backfired a couple of times and shut off. It won't start up again. I suspect that it is something with the ignition system as there is no spark from the plugs. It could be a variety of things possibly the interrupter for the hall sensor.
When I started the Beemer, it ran great then started to run on only one cylinder. Hmm, curious. After a few moments, I noticed that the petcocks were still closed. The Ural has an automatic, vacuum operated petcock so I'm no longer in the habit of turning them on (and off!).
We ended up just riding to a fellow airhead members home (BobK) and sat around his immaculate garage talking and enjoying his coffee.
