New 2010 Ural GearUp Owner


Recommended Posts

I got my motorcycle license in November last year just before the weather turned and I finally got my GearUp this week and couldn't be happier! I have a lot to learn but I'm taking it slow....baby steps.

 

Here is a small write up about getting the bike earlier this week:

My ride report from yesterday (first real ride):

My ride report from Today:

I'm slowly building confidence and look forward to the day when I take on NJ traffic full force. I also look forward to being able to drive it far enough to find some dirt to play in. New Jersey is a little different from Texas where I spent most of my life... I'm sure I'll find some good places to go off road and have a whole new experience with the Gearup.

 

Most of all I can't wait till I have enough experience to safely take my dog Jack with me on some long rides. He seems to be taking to the bike as if he's been in it for years.

 

 

Words cant describe how cool the Ural community is... It's made this new venture much easier.

 

More ride reports to come.

Congratulations. I got my 2010 Patrol on the 6th and have reached the point of being comfortable, but not over confident, in most situations. I have progressed from the first "can I make it home alive" trip to riding on quite city streets and now the highway, which is a means of getting to the really nice secondary roads both paved and dirt.

Yeah, but William the Fifth is learning how to ride in East Orange NJ, fer crying out loud! That's like being assigned the ice cream delivery route in Hell!

 

Talk about learning under pressure!

 

My hat's off to you William :beerchug:

 

If you can trailer it somewhere (like the Pine Barrens) let me know and I'll meet you there.

 

We can get that rig muddy too!

East Orange does seem a bit scary.

 

As soon as I have a trailer option I'll take you up on the trip!

 

Here's my 4th ride report:
