Embargo are typically targeted at industries or companies. I haven't heard that Ural is part of one.

This thread is funny because a week ago I went looking at Urals.
They were built better than I thought they would be.

Go for it.  I absolutely love my Ural.  Other than a few very minor assembly hiccups, I have had zero issues with mine.  These things are built to survive.

I'm looking harder at a New 2017 Tenere.
I really don't need it but it looks nice.

It's getting there anyway.
It still should last a couple hundred thousand more. :)


I did have to replace the stock rear shock after it started leaking last spring.
You would be proud of me. :D

I couldn't find a good stock shock and I don't believe in  down time when I could be riding.

Aftermarket! Well I never. Lol

Just messing with ya.
Actually, I kinda feel bad for not paying closer attention. You KNOW you can have anything I have sitting in the barn. I have boxes of parts taken off of every bike.
It's just taking up space.

But, since ya have that fancy shock on there...........is it? You know, better?  >:D

I think you should get those forks sorted to match!
I got the complete internals from mine still assembled. Ship them to the fella (can't remember the name) that did a bunch of them. Then he ships to you.
No down time! And I'll get to raz you forever for upgrading.

For those that don't know, there's a funny story about me meeting Steve.
Let's just say he can ride TBDBITW with oem suspenders where I need help from Ohlins to even contemplate.
