    The Yeti showed up from the Ural Mountains!





    <HR style="COLOR: #575757" SIZE=1><!-- / icon and title --><!-- message -->My wife's Artic Gear UP LE showed up on April 7th. We have been so busy with work and stuff we have only put 250 cliks on her. My wife LOVE's it! She has been riding to work on it putting her laptop and briefcase in the trunk.

    Ok so we did the ADV package, Demon windshield, reverse shifter, head light grill, trail tech sped0 with trip computer in miles and more farkles to come.

    I posted these same pics over on this thread http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=300825&page=4

    They have been sighted all over the world even the happiest place on earth! They can cover large distances and have a large territory/roaming range, this one we got even crossed the big pond.

    Our ped slicer is on the way with the Yeti badge. Yeti is just a play on the whole snow/artic thing if you havent guessed.

    She rolled 1,1xx killometers on the ride 258 miles total on this ride. She did better than I thought on the off road stuff. I used the Two Wheel drive feature 3 or 4 times and if I didnt have it I would have been stuck. The reverse gear Priceless. Over all I am very pleased with its performance. 52-59 miles per hour on the highway to get to the forest (Has more power but that was fast enough). Dog slow on the incline (2 & 3 gear), but i was aware of this prior to the purchase and willing to work with in the Ural's paramiters. It does all I ask and off road it does it well.

    I was dead tired when I made it home. Its a lot of work to muscle this thing around corners.

    That looks well.


    Is that a stock exhaust on that model ??



    You`ll probably get less tired as you get more used to riding it....you use different muscles riding combos than solos,and you`ll learn to relax even in gnarly riding siuations.

    I had the adventure kit and pipe put on before it was brought home. I was told they are hard to come by from Ural, we just got lucky. The only things its a plus on are its not chrome and when backing up or crossing streams no water or debris collect in the low pipe. It dosnt give much inch or two maybe in ground clearance. Sounds good too a bit deeper than the P shooters.
