My new ride - Ural "Gear Up"

I saw Pics, Pics, Pics and read the rules for this forum, and this may be
borderline to post here, but at least there is a trail in some of the pics.

I just got this rig two weeks ago - I have sort of thought maybe I want one
since I saw one in 2000 or thereabouts.

So far I like it even with all of it's quirks & peculiarities.

I had it on a gravel road, and engaged 2WD, but my camera was gonna get
beat to death in the trunk, so I had to keep that off hwy excursion short
But I'll have to go out and do some offroad riding as soon as life slows down a bit.

Thanks.
I'm familiar with Mr Cob's pictures... I have already emulated his heel-shifter
modification, though I will reduce the mod a bit in order to clear the kick
starter and because I can feel the shifter in the side of my boot.
I'll also weld on a control horn for a future hand shifter while I'm welding.

But first I have to build a machine gun replica out of wood for the car &
bike show here at work on Friday

Mr Cob's Uraling in Utah pictures are fantastic. I "borrowed" one for a wallpaper
on my desktop... and had a friend who works with my wife sneak it onto my
wife's computer wallpaper when she stepped away from her desk.

The subliminal message(s) worked; when we found a used gear-up at a great price
($7500 for a 2006 with 990 km) she said "We better buy it - a deal like this won't
come up again" (and she is a financial analyst with an accounting degree!).

But it gets even better - now she is thinking we could take both of us and both
kids camping if she had a Ural too!

I've been trying to justify one of these for a long time.
Since three-wheeling is out of my frame of reference, I don't know where and when I would use it. What do you use it for? Substitute it for any current or past bikes?
And, if anyone out there knows; what are the changes/improvements from '05 to '07?
