My 2004 Retro is still going strong, 46,000 km on it. I don't put as much mileage on it since I retired (I used to drive it to work) but it has been a good bike.

Good Luck!

Fuel + air + spark. There's not much more to it.

 

Our Son has our original 1998 Ural BC Classic, upgraded with an early 750cc engine.

It's almost at 100,000 km, so we'll have a little celebration soon.

 

And my 2007 Retro runs perfectly, and was ridden by our Son last weekend while they visited.

I'm still unable to ride, with my arm in a sling from a shoulder rebuild. Doc's orders.

Frustrating seeing all this gorgeous riding weather sliding past. While I age...

 

So all you who CAN ride: Get out there and enjoy it for me, please.

I had an opportunity to ride 2014 Retro M70 from Los Angeles to Las Vegas and back 600 miles in about 11.5 hours. Left home at 4:10 am, with stops and gas up every 100 miles or so got to Vegas at 10:10 am. I ran out gas at 167km without low gas yellow light indication. I had three 1 gal. Plastic jerry cans of gas in a box in sidecar.

Started return trip from Vegas at 2:10 pm and got back to LA at 7:10 pm. with stops for gas up. Ther were more downhills coming back home, so the speeds were more excessive (over 70 mph constantly). Lost about half a quart of engine oil from the right valve cover spraying my boot, chaps and all surroundings in between the bike and sidecar. Later placed a rubber washer under that valve cover nut.

 

600 miles in one day. This was my first ride after I sold my last bike - 1998 Honda Valkyrie with Champion Escort sidecar more than 8 years ago. Urals are getting better, but they are still Urals.
