    Lusting for a Ural

    I've actually gotten to the point financially I can afford a new toy without trading in my loyal K.

    Rigs have always intrigued me. Had a Flexit on the K75 years ago but I wanted a solo bike also.

    i love the simplicity of the Urals, not to mention I'm closer to a Ural dealer than a BMW.

    The engineering reminds me of my '72 TR Spitfire which I bought new at the tender age of 19, it was about 20 years obsolete then but damn, was it fun. And I learned alot about wrenching (out of necessity)

    I have a 12 and 6 year old that are not interested on riding the K, but the sidecar would be "totally cool"

    Always been attracted to offbeat cars and bikes (Citroen ID-19 was my all time fav) and the Russian bike fills that bill.

    And I want a new factory rig (I deserve to mess it up all by myself!) But not a HD.

    I like the idea of developing a new skill set, and the possibility of playing the the mud and snow with the 2WD I'm leaning towards. Anti-lock, FWD, and slide control take all the fun out of driving in snow nowadays.

    Any thoughts from all you hack pundits out there?
