If you get a Ural you should be careful w/ day dreaming.
There will be visions of riding down old mining trail & trying to watch your kilometer gauge turn right on 7,000. Then you look up to see an antilope standing in your path. These thoughts are dangerous while riding a Ural. But they are also very true.
Also becareful about young ladies, yes this is another issue w/ these Urals. They are a real honey getter.
My dog is now my best friend, so we have little time for the bitches. He understands the Ural better than I understand it.
You will wake up making strange hand turning movements. You will not get much sleep during the first year of ownership.
Maybe worst of all, you will be the reason so many other riders will also join the ''Ural thinking".
You will just stop careing about get anywhere fast.
Worst of all, you will reach out to make new friends who also like to ride Urals the same way you want & ask openly, w/o shame to sleep in their backyards. This has been a very humble time for my BRO. But he never looks back.
