Ural on the news.

Sent to me this morning by a riding buddy. I told him Urals run better when it's cold and snowy since it's their natural habitat.

Was driving (car) yesterday and heard on the radio a motorcycle had been sighted riding on a main route in the city. Although he didn't mention sidecar, we've one fellow in the city that's been riding his Ural rig throughout the winter... and I'm guessing that was who was sited. It's been -20C or colder, so that's about -6 degrees F. Too cold for me to brave riding !

Has to be one of our customers. The Ural is one of the best means of transportation in the winter. Not to mention you get to have a blast doing it

Good to see. The opportunity to this would be nice - all I've got is endless bloody rain and some flooding.
Still, England, huh?
