New to me Ural

Post by RTA » Tue Sep 08, 2020 3:26 pm

After years of thinking about it I finally bought a Ural. Its a 2011 patrol with 4500 km on the clock. I'm getting it registered today and will post pictures shortly. Gong to need to do some cleaning and needs a new rear tire. So far i love it!!

Welcome! Since you have a Slash 6, you'll feel right at home servicing the Ural. Both are worthy mounts. BMW might be significantly higher quality, but the Ural is very entertaining, and draws more attention!

It's a good year. Mines been as far north as Ashville (from Ft. Lauderdale). Back roads 99% of the way. UDF all the way :D

Even attracted almost the whole police force in one town who were fascinated by it. Got a great police escort after lunch and conversation complete with intersection stops and smiles and waves. :moto:

If you ever have the engine apart get the new crank and bearings. Mine lasted to 43000 km YMMV

All 3 machines (Albatros L-39?, R90 and Patrol) are nice ones. Have miles of smiles. We need more Urals locally!

What to call it? Since it looks like you are intimately familiar with the L-39, why not call it The Albatross?
