The whole body tilts back as the rear wheels auto-deflate and you just ride it on.

Highly recommended reading. That had to be the adventure of a(two) lifetime(s).

Yup. Urals are heavy, and can put a hurting on some tires. They are far from performance machines, but they will take an amazing thrashing and just keep ticking. If you're going to toss it around in the twisties, you have to be ready to punish both the rig and yourself.
