Yes, the Ural is a ton of fun, plus, very addictive. However, the 2006 and newer models are much more reliable.

Ural ownership is a Sickness

Yep all us Ural owners suffer a sickness. I've owned 8 Urals since I bought my first one new in 1999. 2008 has the best upgrades but '99 was a good year too. I currently have a '99 Patrol and an '07 Arctic GearUp. Go for It.

I have to interject that it's only a good sickness if you are able to medicate it!!
