Hi comrades, my name is Claus and I live in Hamburg/Germany. I bought my ural rig new in St. Peterburg /russia in 1993 and ride it since.
Meanwhile I have learned alot about russian bikes and it's still great fun to ride it. Would never sell, because it has become a family member.
And over all the years it has become a very reliable ride where I can smell or feel when something goes wrong before a serious damage occurs.

I joined this forum after reading for quite a while and I like the way you guys help each other.

Greetings, Claus

Greetings denizens of the forum!
I didn't want to be here. I swear! I was looking for a job and read my forum Oppozit.ru. But somewhere on Oppozit was a link I clicked. After reading some topics, I realized that there are the same as we are just on the other side of the earth. With same as our interests and concerns. We have only two differences: most of us are younger than 40 and most of us have URAL as the first motorcycle in life.
I will be glad to offer my knowledge in the field of repair and maintenance motorcycle. As well as reveal a few secrets related to the topic of magic and Ural starting wizardy. :bow:

In advance sorry for my English, use an online translator and knowledge from school.

Welcome! I agree with you that we are all basically the same and we have more in common than many due to our love of the Ural. I look forward to learning from your experience.
