Oh No, an embargo on Russian Motorcycles?

Woke this morning to this headline on the Washington Post!

Then there's this from FoxNews:

You know, there'd been rumors of such actions by the U.S. government as they deal with the ongoing crisis involving Russia and the Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula but I didn't think it would really affect the imports of URAL Sidecar rigs and such!   Click the links above for the full articles:

Let's hope URAL USA has lots of parts on hand. And that Uncle Sam doesn't come to your house and confiscate contraband...

My more analytical, less emotional side though senses a scam in this news...

What is the date today???

Steaming mad!?!?!

Good one

One could hope it was an April Fool's joke, but with more than one source reporting it, probably not.

You'd think they would find something a bit more hard hitting, unless of course this is one of the most popular money making exports for Russia.

There are some who say that of one who buys three Urals...

I don't know what to believe. Those snippets look so real.

Hope you don't have any problem with parts availability

I also thought about April Fool's joke. And honestly, it wouldn't be a good one either.

...Dom you got me good! It has been a long time since I used the F word and GD word like that...geez, you would have enjoyed my reaction. On the other hand, Sun figured it out instantly (while I ranted and raved)......

Just got a new engine, I was thanking my lucky stars that I got my engine BEFORE this happened. Funny now that my heart started working again! Starting to scheme on how to get even! Cheers..GlennandSun
