This well travelled Ural 750 has turned up at a few events that I've been at over the years, but this is the first time that I've ever had the chance to speak to the owner.
Having made a number of small, but imprtant modifications to it over the years he reports being very happy with it. It's never let him down and the few problems that he has have all been pretty minor.
He believes that it's reliability is down to how he rides it. It's not meant to be a fast bike, so he doesn't ride it very fast.
55mph gets him most places he reckons and, as he's retired now he's rarely in much of a hurry anyway.
