Once in a blue moon, the thought of buying an Ural creeps up to me. I browse some second hand sites, and find one that doesn’t look too bad, and start imagining riding through deep mud with the two-wheel drive axle engaged, or smoothly cruising the French countryside…
These short honeymoon-thougts always end when I remind myslef of it’s horrible build quality, awful fuel mileage, bad dealer coverage, low topspeed… 
Still the bike appeals, it’s a sidecar you want to be seen on, you could compare it to the landrover. It is a motorcycle with huge pedigree, dating back to even before the second world war. Soviet spies stole the blueprints of a BMW R71, and tried to copy it as best as they could. How’s that for a gaspump story?
The Urals are still being made at the original plant, located in the town of Irbit, at the outskirts of Siberia.
