Just came across the ice run video at the adventurists website. Looks brutal! The image above freaks me out.
I pulled my Ural off the road a few days ago due to a worn rear u-joint. The driveshaft u-joint assembly was badly worn and I just didn't realize how bad it was. I figured it was better to stop riding and get it fixed so nothing bad could happen as a result of my Ural neglect. I'll know to keep an eye on this in the upcoming winters. I think all of the salt and snow did this part in, this winter. I found a replacement that I'll post about soon.
If you want to see how many layers of clothing it takes to do the ice run take a look at the video here.
