Have a 2012 GU at almost 7000 km. The hardest thing to do so far is adjusting the valves and that is no big thing. Anything you want to do to your ride or maintenence is available on Soviet Steeds. Break it in right and then drive it like you stole it.
I cruse at 100kph and can push it it 120 but it no like to stay at that for too long.
If you do not like to talk to people, dont buy a Ural
If you want to go fast, do not buy a Ural.
If you are not comitted to doing the maintenance, do not buy a Ural.
