 Rasputin right after the Buff. Mrs P and I love the URAL and for me the best feature of the Ural is the reverse gear  :ricky: no need to push it like a

 shopping cart  :lol8:  Come on Humfree do your thing!!

Where can I read more, like a road test on the 2014 model? Is it an upgraded model (so it seems) of the old or current version?

Ask Humfree to give us an update. He should know as he is the vendor.
