Pathetic! The top reason why one should not buy a Ural. A bike named after a chain of mountains and these riders have to use every ounce of energy to cross a stream. Really pathetic! I could ford that stream on a tricycle pulled by a couple Great Danes without as much effort. Truly one of the most pathetic videos I have been subjected to. Hog Wash......Ural Trash.......Climb that POS up a redwood and I might buy one. Soviet Steed my ASS!
Don't hold back now. Tell us how you really feel! You should give a Ural a test ride some day. I have never met anyone whose ridden one who didn't end the ride with an aching grin on their face.The Ural, much like any other motorcycle out there is not the end-all, be-all, evolutionary pinnacle of motorcycling. It has a niche that it fills quite well though. It was never designed to cross rivers like the one in the video and that's one of the reasons the video is interesting.Cheers,Dan K.
I don't understand the animosity toward Urals. I don't either, I have three bikes in my garage, a 2000 Enfield, a 1994 Ural w/hack and a 1959 Harley FL. I love them all, along with just about any other brand motorcycle. Their all cool, some just more than others.
Funny, I want a URAL just so I CAN do stupid shit like crossing over a raging river. Well, that and so I can take my Bulldog for rides and dress up like Indiana Jones for Halloween.
