I understand the intrusive-r to occur at the end of syllables when the next syllable starts with a vowel. YMMV.
The only sense I could make out of the ur in turday was a non-rhotic representation of some vowel I couldn't even begin to think how to represent. The eh in behd was my attempt that I probably shouldn't have begun to think how to represent for some other non-rhotic vowel.
