Ural Yamal
 
Have you guys seen this? Ural mentioned it yesterday and I have decided that it will, without a doubt, be my next bike. Even without pics of the thing, I'm that sure it will be awesome! I blogged about it today if you care to read about my excitement!:rofl

I guess there is nothing there that you couldn't do yourself, but that isn't really the point. They will get there, just takes time. It's not like they have BMW's R&D budget!

Neat Factor
 
Am seeing a lot of major improvements in all Urals over the last 5 years.

Neat factor is that the average guy can keep things running w/ their very complete tool kit.

Great list.....skid plate, fog lights, 3m...:deal

My Ural has had these for 4 years now...:clap:clap

Thank goodness Ural doesn't have BMW's R&D budget. Ural needs to just keep making quality improvements.

KISS, we got enough ugly over tech-ed bikes on the market now.

Yes, I got the email from URAL Yesterday. An oar, really! What's the point of that?

Urals limited editions traditionally are a years end model, not a new year model. The new stuff comes out later.

They're just having fun with the theme of naming it after an icebreaker. Considering how hard other motorcycle manufacturers push image and lifestyle, I think its refreshing that Ural isn't taking it too seriously.

I'd have to see it, but it doesn't sound like anything to get THAT excited over. So it's a regular Gear Up with a different paint job, some liner sprayed under the fenders, and some bolt on accessories - no big deal :scratch

orange Gear UP
 
i have seen this same color somewhere before, but for the life of me, can't recall where.:evil

My excitement stems from a motorcycle manufacture including all the things on the bike that one would put on there anyway. Heated grips may possibly be the only addition, but I will run heated gloves so the point is moot.

What else would you guys add to the list of stuff on there? Am I missing something obvious?

Wow man, you excite incredibly easy. So you're excited because a manufacturer is including things on the bike (i.e. Ural made bolt on parts) that a customer would potentially put on there anyway?? Would you be equally excited if they released a purple tourist without the passenger windscreen? :rofl

5 forward speeds, retaining the reverse gear

So I'm easily amused! I just think it's cool that they are doing the farkling exactly the way I would anyway. Makes my life easier, and I don't need to find someone to add the shark graphic to the sidecar!

I've never rode a Ural, but would they even have enough power to push another gear?

All things in time. It's not like they are selling 20,000 bikes a year and could justify a million in R&D to add more power, fuel injection, 6 speeds with reverse, 3 wheel drive, low range, a heated sidecar, and still keep it under $15k. :evil

I have. No they don't have power for a higher gear, but it's a pretty big jump from 2nd to third, and another to 4th. 1&2 are close enough, but 3 more close ratio gears above that would be a huge improvement over the 2 wide ratio ones they have now. That's the biggest single upgrade they could make, even before more power, or disc brakes all around...IMO
