Hi all,

Looking to get my first Ural. My family has always had Triumphs (since the late 1950's) but I'm a bit too vertically challenged to be comfortable on the Adventurer (especially with loaded bags) and the high pipes on the Scrambler are just too close for comfort. As my wife and I near retirement, we are looking for something new to take on an adventure(s) and the Ural seems to fit the bill. Going to be doing lots of reading in the near future. Happy to be here.

2003 Triumph Speedmaster
Hopefully a Ural soon
Too many cars to list here :D

welcome, you will find out after riding a Ural that its good exercise especially if off road. riding a bicycle is healthy, but a Ural will give your arms a little workout also. :cheers:

Hello all. I am pleased to be here. I have already introduced myself in the Newbie Questions area; but I wanted to say hello here. I am considering a Ural as I approach the day of not being able to ride two wheels safely. I still want to do adventure rides and the Ural looks like just the ticket. I have been riding two wheels for 60 years and have previously owned and ridden two rigs.

Hey everybody! I just purchased the 2013 Gobi Gear Up from fellow Soviet Steed member, CaptainSlow. I'm exceptionally excited to start riding as soon as it gets here.

I've already ordered a personalized license plate for it and thought it would be a nod to fellow Ural pilots.
