I've been looking for a Ural for a few months now and while several very nice rigs have presented themselves they were usually too far away to make for easy collection. Then this 2007 Gear Up pops up 20 minutes from my home. Hmmmm...had to do it. It was a little dirty having sat in a barn for the last 18 months or so, but with a charger on the battery it started in 3 kicks with 18 month old fuel. No smoke and a decent idle so I dragged it home on a trailer. So I got it home and began tearing into it to clean, adjust, service and replace anything that needed replacing. Painted the exhaust as the NY winters had not been kind to the Russian chrome...and who puts chrome on a camo motorcycle? Got my daughters to clean up the seats in the car, ordered a bunch of little things...painting the floor of the trunk today and should be able to start putting it back together later this week. Should be a fun toy.
