Marriage affects people that way, too, at first.
The thing about Urals seems to be you can always find them for sale with low mileage. :giggles

Ural's are like puppies.  Cute as all get out and attention getters when new, but they need endless attention and devotion  to be a faithful companion.  Neglected and left out on a chain they become mangy evil curs that will make their owners wonder what the hell they were thinking.

I watched the video and I had a barely controllable urge to go and buy one. Do I need help, what am I to do?

After building my lowly k75 outfit at the fraction of the cost for a Ural and then riding it with a few of them on a rally I am really glad I didn't buy one. For anything long distance they're not the best machines out there.

They only make about 1000 Urals a year, about 600 for the US market.  They a definitely not for everyone.   :riding:
