Keep us posted. (Ride report....) Some of us might meet you along your route.

I'm leaving AK on "Olga" in late June or early July so if you come through Eastern WA near Spokane when I'm here you can have a Ural friendly place to stay for a night or two and a big shop to do the routine fluid changes.

Thanks Norm! I might take you up on that. My final destination is Camano Island, Wa, where my uncle in laws live. Also,there will definitely be a ride report. I should also mention my father is going to ride in the side car for the trip also. This ought to be interesting.

more importantly....
can't wait until you can ride it

You already bronzed your pipes? How long were you riding that for?

Check with your dealer and make sure you read the fine print about assembling the bike yourself.
IIRC, from when I worked for a Ural dealer, if the dealer does not set up ( ie uncrate and assemble) the bike, they ( URAL) can void your warranty.
And with a Ural, you don't want that to happen.
Interesting color. Glad to see they are expanding a little.

I didn't assemble the bike. I watched and learned. Being new to Urals, and with such a long rode trip in my future, the dealer thought it would be a good idea to watch the assembly process, so I wasn't in the dark if i had a issue on the road.

That's a beauty! I'm normally not into stickers but those accents look really nice on yours. Have a great trip to Camano Is. If ya make it to the Olympic peninsula drop an email. I may be on the road but I'll get it via phone. If I'm not home you're welcome to pitch a tent anyway.

All powder coat, no stickers. Almost too nice for a 2wd Ural.
