Welcome!  I have a sister ship to yours.  It's my favorite machine. 

There is another member here from Moscow who has posted many photos of his trips.  The Russian countryside is beautiful and looks like a great place to ride.

Hi and welcome!

I am another 1991 K100RS 16v owner, I complain sometimes about the heat of riding mine in Costa Rica but I cannot imagine riding in Moscow in winter.  I have visited Moscow a few times over the years and always seem to be there in December and freezing my ass off!

I look forward to seeing some photos of your bike.

Welcome!  I have become quite fond of one of your county's motorcycles,  funny, when I've met Russians their response is usually "why would you buy one of those?" Sometimes I wonder that myself.

My first motorcycle was URAL with a stroller, I drove it 20 years ago. Then it's a cool bike ball. It's almost a copy of the BMW R90, if I'm not mistaken?
Ural Gear-Up, generally looks cool. Do you have an army style?

That's for sure. You do not know how sometimes I want to be in Costa Rica, looking out the window of my house from November to March.)))))))
