My '08 Ural Gear-Up!

Purchased it a couple weeks ago. I had never seen a Ural in person until I was at a dealership in Chicago about 6 months ago. Ever since then my motorcycle fetish just ate away at me until I found a dealership out here. I love learning to ride it and it's definitely the most fun steed in the stable. Just put on my raceway reverse shifter too!
Turns out people in Los Angeles are actually nice....you just have to buy a weird ass bike to witness it....

RE Gear-Up

Concratulations! They're a neat machine. The recent change to black wheels really looks sharp. If you've not familar with the various Ural related sites,check out "Russian Iron" and "Soviet Steeds";
there's also the factory sponsored website(but they're kinda sensitive to
anything less than positive comments).

Congrats on the new Ural. I bought 2 2008 Patrols about 2 months ago. Bought through TriQuest Motorcycles in Santa Clara, CA. None of my business, but where did you find yours? Happy three wheeling

Got this one @ Boss Hoss in Harbor City, CA. Salesmen don't seem to be very keen on the Urals but the service guys I talked to made me feel ok buying from them.

I'm on both RI and SS but thanks much for turning me that way in case I didn't know.

Well, that's good if the sales guys made you feel comfortable. Hopefully the service guys can help you with any questions about your Gear Up. Ski Jablonski of TriQuest Motorcycles of Santa Clara does nothing but Urals. I think he can help you with any questions and parts if you need them. Very knowledgeable and very helpful. If you want I can PM you his information. I'm not pushing him on you, but just like to give you more options. Don't let the distance deter you from him.
Happy Three Wheeling

P.S. Love your avatar picture
