I thought Pag went out of business a while ago...

NADA, at least, doesn't show anything past 2016.

Any current info out there? All the websites seem to be down.

The Bolt is always on my short list of next bikes!  Nice looking one you got there!
Yes still have the stock muffler, but I cut out the end piece to make it louder.

The original tire did not wear unevenly.  Before I buy the new tire I need to take a good look at everything in the back end as soon as I can find some time. Could an improperly adjusted drive belt cause uneven tire wear? The only work I've ever done on the back wheel assembly is new tire, new brake pads, and belt adjustment.
stock muffler? that thing weighs about 20 lb, causing the rider to compensate for the uneven weight distribution by leaning slightly to the left. mine did it to some extent with the stock exhaust as well.
If it is not the tire itself, the rear wheel might be out of alignment.
So I was changing the oil and doing some other maintenance getting ready to ride this spring. Looked at the tires and noticed the rear tire is not wearing in the center. It's wearing about an inch or so to the left of center. So the tread just left of center is almost gone and the tread just right of center looks almost new.

Any thoughts on what would cause this? I didn't notice anything weird or out of the normal while riding last year. Maybe the tire is just bad? The drive belt looks ok (no cracks, splits, fraying, etc.) but it does need tightened. I will take it to my local shop to have the tire replaced, should I have them also take a look at everything in the rear and see if they can figure out what's going on?

Glad you are getting things fixed up.  I bet you miss the Ural, occasionally. ;)

not yet. in fact, I think I've only been out on my Triumph once since the Ural left. once it warms up and I get an opportunity to go play in some dirt I'll probably miss it more, but that will just be motivation to get my dirt bike back into rideable shape.
