Actually that's kind of why I bought the KLR hack. Although the Ural & KLR are different critters, they're fairly similar in their simplicity compared to more modern multi cylinder machines. I've really come to enjoy farting around cruising gravel country roads. The thing with bikes like the Ural (and KLR rigs) is that you can't be in a hurry (you're not going to cruise at 75 mph), and shouldn't expect them to be something they're not. Never know... maybe if the right deal came along, and the stars aligned correctly, I'd have a Ural someday. Never thought I'd buy a KLR either, or enjoy it so much!
