Amazing the way they get better as they wear in. I'm at 7200km and loving it. Do oils at 2500km intervals to keep things happy.

Check out Sovietsteeds on the newbie forum. Lots of questions answered and everyone is willing to talk and give advice.
Also a Floridian. Spray your linkages/exposed metal/rust with ACF50. Repeat once a year.

I also agree with Marty. Go to the ural rally and talk to some owners. Then buy from Gene.
