Finally decided.

After much lurking and reading of these pages, I pick up a new Ural Gear Up this Thursday. I considered a VStrom 1ooo to hack but had a brain fart over the subframe etc. I have a sidecar which is a Ural copy that I was going to use but jumped in and splurged on a new rig. So anywho its now only 2 sleeps till pick up day. I just hope its not one of those built the day after the red square parade when everyone is hung over!!

I am in the study right now. I must say I was feeling a bit Indian about the Ural. that is to say I had reservations, but having read so much here I feel happy about the purchase.

Right or wrong, you can't be shy on a Ural!!
good luck with it, hope it suits. Keep it off the bitumen & let it dance!

On any outfit you get noticed, but I suspect the Ural will be a little more noticeable. I wont be using it as a getaway vehicle, for more than one reason.

Ural

A new green Gear Up, you're in for a treat. I love my Tourist, but the 2WD will be my next purchase. Even though 2WD is normally not needed, it is nice to have just in case.

From a new Gear-Up owner to a newer one, right on.

IF your not retired the biggest problem you'll have to overcome is going to work instead of driving that rig---ask anyone who owns one they're VERY addictive
