hey very nice trip !!!!!!!
... thats a great report ....
Fantastic escapism while trapped in a cube at work! Thanks for the time you spent shooting and posting.
Brilliant trip... especially Moscow sounds like it's worth a visit.
(I know that the rest is worth a trip anyway... )
great report, crazy how others live. you only see it in these reports....thanks
DUDE!! YOU DA MAN!!! Great report!!!
nice report man! my wife is from lithuania, urals are cheap there as well. seems like anything old and from the russians is unwanted by the majority in those parts. i've been thinking it would be cool to pick up an old side car ural one of these days...
That brings back some memories, thanks for posting pictures.
It's a great time to play with the old Russkie bikes while they are cheap and plentiful. Especially if you are in any of the baltic countries. Harley was the same way in the 60's and 70's...Go for it, I say!
Hey Jay glad to see you made it home safe. Made it all the way to Magadon , Back home in Colorado now was glad to see you in Kazak, great ride report.
Hey Jay, Cheers for the RR. I love your wandering off the beaten track style of camping. Pity you're going to sell that outfit - RU sure your daughter won't 'hate' you for it in 20 years time?!
Nice RR! Ones like theese really get the wanderlust going in me.
lol, oh most likely! Can't keep em' all though. Would have needed a warehouse by now if that was the case!
BTW what did it cost at Kirov? Cheers
The asking price just for the bike was 30,000 roubles. So after parts, fees, registration, train ticket there etc, about $1100 usd with documentation. The seller was very nice and threw in lots of tools, 30l fuel can, blankets, service manual, tire pump, jack, food and priceless hospitality...basically filled the empty trunk up with stuff I may need.
An old Ural can be had in Russia for around $200-$500 in Ok condition, but usually no paperwork, which is the catch. Closer to Mosow or St Petersburg, the price is noticeably higher. ALmost all Urals in Russia are older style 650cc models, the new 750's are export only and rarely sold in Russia. It is my understanding the factory only sold only five 750cc units domestically last year.
Don't know if anyone will read this but I now own the Ural from this ride report, it is in Yorkshire UK and just got back on the road today after being SORN'd for a while, would like to contact Jay if I can and let him know how the beast is doing...
Oh wow, that's cool! Sorry I don't check the site as often as I should! Crazy small world! Get in touch....
That's a great trip and RR - kids do love a sidecar.
