If you can sit on either I would do that. After I sold my 2005 Patrol I had it in mind to get a Retro. I went to Holopaw Gene's place and I sat on a Retro and a Gear Up. For me I just was more comfortable on the taller Patrol style kind of rig. It's a personal choice. The Retro has 18" inch wheels and is a little quicker than the taller rigs (Tourist, Patrol, T, gear Up, Etc.) handles a little better on the roads. Also keep in mind that the seats on either bike can be modified which people have done. My personal favorite limited edition rig that Ural made was the, "Red October" it had 18" inch wheels, a Retro type frame, and leading link front end. That rig was quick (Relatively speaking) and looked way cool. It's all good. Happy hunting.....
