I am 38. I don't believe I had ever even been on a motorcycle until I took the MSF class a few weeks ago. Why the hell did I do that? 3 years ago, I saw a picture of a Ural Gear Up and then I read Mr. Cob's report. 3 years later, I still love looking at the Ural, reading reports and watching YouTube clips. I had never wanted a motorcycle before seeing the Ural. The only two wheeler I really like looking at is the Solo ST. So my motorcycle interest is more or less equivalent to my interest in Urals. It is exceedingly rare for me to drive above 60 MPH in my car, so the speed of the Ural is just dandy. I'll be putting a good sized down payment in the next couple of months for a 2011 Ural Gear-Up in Gobi Desert camouflage. 38 year old men should normally not be giddy, but I am.
