Ural Pilgrimage 2010

In summer 2010 the 6th Ural pilgrimage will be organised. A trip to Sibiria for Ural motorcycle insiders and those who want to become Ural motorcycle insiders.
In the last 6 years many Ural friends from all over Europe and America have participated, many journalist joined and many televisions teams from England and Germany made reports.


In 2010 ten new sidecars will be ready. All our rental bikes will have sidecar drive. Due to the bad Russian road conditions and additional due to continous demands of the travel group to drive off-road – the sidecar drive is here the best equipment.

An extensive factory visit is included and also a visit of the Ural museum is of course compulsory.
The nights are mostly spent in tents, always in an absolutely quite and romantic place on Russian lakees or rivers. The only neighbors are mosquitos, and there are loads of them.

The whole equipment, tens, kitchen, meals, beverages incl. cook, interpreter, mechanic is inside the red bus of Sergey Ziranow, the former Russian sidecar motocross champion. The trip is accompanied through the organizer of the tour, Birgit Krassnitzer, employed by the Ural importer in Austria. Birgit of course driving her own Ural.

Because of many requests, it will be possible for the participants to buy „their“ own sidecar. Very simple at the Ural dealer of their choice. Either before the trips start – in this case it is of course possible to choose colour and model, or after the trip, just in case the rental bike becomes your best friend.
It is of course very special if you can pick up a new Ural sidecar directly and personally in the factory and at the same time run the bike in, on Russian soil.

The transport from the factory to the dealer of your choice will be organised throught the Ural importer from Austria. Within 14 days the new Ural will be at your house together with the Russian dirt and soil.
