Motorcycle Industry Job Op

Since I worked in the motorcycle industry when I was younger, and since "transportation" job opportunities are infrequent, I thought I'd re-post this position with the Marketing Department at Ural Motorcycles USA here. They're located in Redmond, Washington. Odd that they listed it in Craigslist, bu...

Re: New ride ... Lmo Edition.

Re: New ride ... Lmo Edition.

Even if I can't relate to the romance of buying a Dnepr. Es ist eine Krankheit! And they ARE essentially an agricultural vehicle, AND not often taken care of. The Dneprs that show up over here are "kits" imported into the US as parts and assembled for resale. This one is a bit ahead of the game in ...

Re: New ride ... Lmo Edition.

Ural has been quite successful in placing their brand into the media. SQGomTk6JI4 c-yDnf9izD0 It's particularly fitting that they brought the "caveman" back to the front with this machine. Ural and Dnepr both are not sophisticated machines, crude might be a better adjective. They were designed for c...

Re: New ride ... Lmo Edition.

What does he military livery look like? Dnepr (Neper) went out of business in 1992, and Ural (who is still in business and whose machine you're probably seeing lately) both built, essentially, the same motorcycle for the soviet military with a few differences. Virtually all of the major components ...

Re: My 2nd Kickstarter: A watch made of MARBLE

I could not care less about your product, as it is offered in KickStarter. As a designer, reading a discussion forum, I would like to see the progression of the product from it's conception. How did you arrive at the end product (the "process" yo is speaking of)?. i.e. I would much prefer to see han...

Re: New Mazda campaign: Driving Matters

Aww ww w ww The Miata was the first reliable British sports car, wasn't it? I like the shadow of the dart board, surrounded by holes, on the garage door. Another roadster would be fun... might even consider another Fiat 124 Spider, since it wouldn't be my sole means of transportation this time. No p...
