    I've only got 400 Km on a Ural under my belt and I can slip it into and out of reverse with my foot. It's stupid easy!

    I assume you know that you can leave it in first when you do it? My 2010 Gear Up (and I assume all other Urals) goes into neutral from 1st just by putting it into reverse. I have a tank shifter and find it easier to find neutral doing it this way as opposed to using my foot shifter.

    I'll be taking my first "trip" on my ural this weekend, only had it a few weeks but I'll be riding 200 miles north to the catskills. On my bike this would be a relatively mundane ride, but since it is my first longer Ural ride, I am really looking forward to it.

    We followed this thread instead of the "shouldn't" thread. Good choice. The wife's 2012 patrol, purchased last month from UralNE (great people):

    I am blown away by how much smoother and quiet it is than I expected it be.

    It's a real blast.

    The borscht flavored kool-aid maybe stronger than the orange kool-aid the KTM riders drink. Still, not as strong as the feeling of superiority that belongs to the motorcyclist master race.

    Dirty communist Urals!

    I want one ._.
