Howdy, folks. I'm looking into purchasing my 1st Ural (an '09 Patrol model) and my main concern regards their reliability. I don't know a single thing about wrenching -- though I'm eager and anxious to learn -- and I'm wondering if I'm taking on too much responsibility in the maintenance department. I've been thinking that my wife and I might do some out-of-state summer traveling. We're major dawdlers, slow 'n' easy is our style, and we'd be taking the scenic route all the way. Is this a realistic expectation? Also, neither of us are small people. So, by the time we load up our gear, might we expect top traveling speeds of 45-50 mph? Even less, perhaps? Any input would be greatly appreciated, as I'm ready to purchase any day now. So thanks for your input!
