In this post, we’ll take a look back at a fun and busy year, highlighting some of the stories, news, reviews and photos from 2018. Thanks to all of our customers and attendees we met during the shows and adventures throughout the year!
Australian Family Adventure
One of the most memorable adventures we watched in 2018 featured this Perth Australia family of three. They bought a Ural and rode across Australia from East to West. The Velge family (Gwenael, Cielito, and their son Anatole) prepared their Ural cT then set out to log miles and memories. (Photos provided by the Velge family). Click here to read the full article.
Fun Day of Ural Test Rides
We attended Adventure Rider Magazine’s Congregation 2018 held at Green Valley Farm, Tingha, where over 300 keen adventure riders gathered for their annual event. Jon Taylor from Ural of Oz, gave a brief theory lesson on the ins and outs of sidecar riding, followed by a quick run through of their course before letting them take control themselves.

Riders of all ages, some who traveled many miles, attended the event which began with a BBQ breakfast, followed by a theory presentation on sidecar riding by Jon Taylor, experienced sidecar rider and trainer, of uralofoz.com.au.

2018 Ural Adventure Ride
The 2018 Ural Adventure Ride was held on the 13-14th October. Every year since 2009 the annual ride has been organised to gather interested Ural owners together and celebrate the fun of back roads touring on a Ural outfit. It has proved to be a great learning experience for new owners and an enjoyable challenge for many repeat participants. Click here to read the full article.

A beautiful set of photos and a wonderfully produced film were created last year!
