Ural gets animated!

Meet Hari Hackman and his Ural as they adventure and make new friends.  This animated collection from Ural Motorcycles Europe is full of tongue-in-cheek fun.  Hari gets the girl, wins over the bike gang, his dog tops the podium, he camps, he wrenches, and he hets the groceries!  The best part?  You can submit your own ideas and they might animate them!

What Ural Motorcycles Like

Mud. Dirt. Sand. Snow. Water. Air.

First of all you are going to want to find some mud, throw on the 2WD and really make sure to get some stuck in places that can’t be washed off!  Urals love this and it is necessary to keep them happy.

Once you have a lovely layer of mud, you are going to want to give it a good dusting with some nice loose dirt!  Have fun in the corners, drift a little, live a little!

Don’t be scared of the sand at the bottom of that ravine, stay the course and charge through.  The ups and downs of washes are your new play ground…  Or try this at the beach!

Snow.  Who needs a snowmobile when you can have a Ural?  While everyone else is at home in the 8″ that fell, you have the perfect city sled!  Whip your motorcycle around like the Tasmanian Devil in a field and kick up a rooster tail that will make people a mille away wonder what is that?

Of course, sooner or later you are going to need to wash you Ural, try driving it through a knee-high stream or use the sidecar as a boat!  Sure you can use a hose, but it isn’t as much fun.


Finally, air.  It is nice to breathe and your Ural likes it for combusting and staying cool, but we recommend getting air and lifting the third wheel.  The following video is an excellent assemblage of the best ways to treat your Ural!

The Ice Run

The Ice Run is a 1,500km race across the frozen Siberian wilderness on old school Ural motorbikes to the only town in the world sitting on the Arctic Circle. The first batch of riders have just finished the race!   The first in were brothers Andy and Adrian from ‘The Real Arctic Monkeys’, shortly after their convoy mates ‘Snow Worries’ limped in, towing ‘Sub Zero’ followed by Patrick and William from ‘Coole Runnings’ pushing their Ural with a bemused team of local journalists in pursuit.  For a finish line interview and full run down of the event, check out The Adventurists for vicarious adventuring!
