top notch
Best and better than the in competition. First used in 1848 when reffering to a lady friend. Notches in the bed post were used to keep a record of the women you slept with. If she was the top notch then she was the best in show.

It's also fitting in the sense that riding and maintaining a Ural has aspects (mostly in good ways) of going back in time
