The Ural - 1972

Pic above was taken at the 2011 Elefant rally
The outfit was purchased as a project - for some reason I fancied doing a winter rally on an outfit - I had never ridden one before so it was obviously sensible to buy one the other end of the country and learn how to ride it on the way home ! riding this contraption through Carnforth I was wondering what the hell I had just brought.
Go it home in one piece and did some modifications - ok a lot !
I changed all the lights to LED as the dynamo only makes around 60 watts - I wanted to run my DIY electric shirt which uses 25
some of the additional lighting below

The Box on the back cam from B&Q - I knew I would need to take some kit with me this seemed like a good and cheap solution
