Intro - The idea

Exactly 10 years ago a group of Ural fans around Czech Ural guru Pavel Kucera went on a pilgrimage to Irbit, only to pick up brand new Ural motorcycles over there and to drive them back to Europe on adventurous routes.

 

Now again!

 

A group of Czech and Slovak friends again will pick up 4 Ural combinations directly from the production line in the Irbit Motorcylce Plant and want to drive them home. But what a difference! It is wellknown that after more than 70 years more or less comfortable Ural production this year the Great Irbit Revolution takes place. In 2014 from the Irbit motorcycles plant there are rolling out Urals with electronic fuel injection, lamda sensors, disc brakes on all wheels and some other incredible modern stuff.

 

How will the new generation of ural will do?
