I came across Urals and was curious. They were not available in Australia, but a local guy had decided to import them. The following year I was close to my nearest dealer, 1,500km from home, a saw my first Ural. Got to look and touch it. Six weeks later I was still on the east coast and had a second look. I buy bikes with my heart, and not my mind. Of course I just had to have the red Tourist. First ride was 10 days later when it wad mine, and I had over 2,000 km in front of me to ride it home. In the back of mind I thought I might not be riding it much once we made Adelaide. 30 months later we have travelled 63,000km and I've never enjoyed road travel so much. Buying this bike is one of my better decisions.
