Snow and low temps should be no hindrance for the Ural, its FROM Siberia, after all.
This tag shouldn't stand a chance against the Ural.
You are correct. Ive ridden right thru the past 4 or 5 winters...

This was taken on our last ride a couple weeks back now


Makes for a great Snowmobile, Ice buggy ... as well as ATV, puller out of shrubs and of course Motorcycle

Winter in michigan means lots of salt... even with the best of spray coatings to protect (a real pain to clean off in the spring)... salt + metal = rust

The end result of that is this:


Wheels off -

Wheels tore down - Scrapping the old, now very rusty steel rims in favor of new Aluminum rims. I hope to have them by the end of the week....

Ive cleaned and painted the hubs, cleaned and repacked the bearings, once I get the new rims - relace, true them up... and off we goooooooooooooooooooo ... thats the plan anyway
