    Ural Curosity l

    Folks I have noticed several of you also ride a Ural I have an opportunity to get a used gear up I believe. Know for sure it is 2 wheel drive. Question is are they as terrible as some of the hype suggests I’ve heard it said the motor will not live to 10 k miles That you cannot keep u joints in them eat ect. If you have knowledge of these bikes I sure would like to hear. Bike has some rust but I bet it would be a lot of fun in the winter I can’t believe they can be all that bad and still continue to sell also seems they hold their value pretty well

    Might want to check the Ural forum:

    https://www.sovietsteeds.com/forums/

    I was at a Ural rally in Virginia years ago, where most of the riders spent the weekend doing repairs.

    The newer Urals (fuel injected) are supposed to have greater reliability.

    You might want to try riding (driving) a sidecar rig before you purchase. It's nothing like steering a motorcycle.

    Motorcycle Consumer News (bike magazine) has done a couple of tests on the Urals... They basically said that they are the worst bike that they ever tested... WW2 technology...
