    Don't know how many bikes total, however only one URal, mostly Dneprs.
    The guy is yanking on the URal from the front fender bumper thingy.

    That's why they invented 2wd. Don't leave home without it.

    From what I can see - most are 2WD. The URal is...

    Howdy All,

    Unless I missed it, I only saw two rigs that had two wheel drive, they were moving much better then the one wheel drive models. Looks like fun to me but then I am a sick bastard. :wink: :evil :lol3 :deal

    I love the first few seconds where they leave it digging while they go fetch the strap. No offence to anyone but that is is just so Russian!

    Apologies, my ear for languages ends at about Glasgow.

    The Russians I've worked with always had a definate approach to mechanical or electrical issues. Until the vehicle stops don't worry. As I spend half my rides listening to imagined noises coming from the Triumph it's an attitude I tried and fail to emulate!

    Not a motorcycle, but would you call this mud?

    Western NSW red soil mud, not terribly sticky but VERY slippery, the black soil mud, sticky as hell, is in the hollow on this area.
    Western QLD is the place for black soil mud, Marris 1800 sedans were popular out there before the days of bitumen roads everywere as the front (drive) wheels could be put on backwards so the tyre was outside the guards and so wouldn't build up with mud and stop turning, sh1t everywere though.
