Had my 2012 Gear Up for a little over two months now. Bike is a blast. Yea, there is some quirks to it but that is what makes it unique. I've had a lot of bikes over the years that I've bought and sold. I think I'll end up taking this one with me to the grave unless I were to replace it with another Ural. It's that much fun
I've had no major problems and have not been babying it. I ride it off road and in the snow. I don't like to ride it much over 55 mph though. It's made for cruising around on backroads not bombing down the interstate. I don't have any regrets getting mine. If you want to be in a hurry to get somewhere don't get a Ural!
