Join us at Union Garage in Brooklyn, NY this Saturday, 1/14 at 7PM, for a live multimedia presentation by the intrepid adventurers of “leavinghomefunktion.” Their bikes will be on hand, fresh from the road, and their pilots will be here to tell us about their trip. We’ll have some light fare and cold refreshments. (Shoutout to Sixpoint for sponsoring this event!)
In the summer of 2014 a group of art school classmates set out on an improbable journey. With freshly minted motorcycle licenses and scant collective mechanical experience between them, the odds seemed stacked heavily against them as they plotted an overland route from Germany to New York City—heading East to get to The West.
The effort would be monumental—including engineering a pontoon system to drive their bikes down a 1,600km stretch of river in Russia, navigating a maze of visa requirements, and surviving years of exposure to the elements.
Please do register if you’re interested in making it. Space is limited and we’re charging $10/ticket for this one – with all proceeds being donated to the group’s Patreon.com crowdfunding site.
And if you need another reason to attend, we’ll be using registrations as raffle tickets for door prizes. One lucky attendee will go home with our limited edition Ural Burn bag, a $380 value. Plus we’ll be raffling off other assorted swag.
As they’re *just* wrapping up their trip they still have gigabytes of photos and videos to process, but here are a few snippets of what they’ve experienced so far. This first clip is from the famous Road of Bones in Russia, and the second shows the ingenuity that helped them navigate 1,600 kilometers of river by Ural.
Adventuring together for years, this Belgian couple decided to take their travels to the next level.
They decided to ship their Ural Gear Up to Cape Town South Africa and ride over 10,000km up the Western Coast to Dakar. Let the adventure begin!
Packing prep for months on the road.

Bike arrived safe and sound, now let’s ride!
Field breakfast, the sidecar makes for the perfect prep area while off the grid.
Gas stop at the local village.
UDF (Ural Delay Factor) is very real, especially when traveling abroad 🙂 Prepare for the occasional crowds!
To make their way up the Congo River they hitched a ride with the local fishermen.
Upon arrival they realized there was no crane available to unload their bike. The boat crew quickly jumped to action and had the bike back on solid ground in record time.
The Gear Up’s on-demand 2 wheel drive was perfect for the African roads and mountain trails.
All smiles after finding a quick detour!
Success! After nearly 4 months on the road they successfully pulled into Dakar. Their bike traveled over 10,000km (6,000 miles), most of them off-road through every type of terrain imaginable.
Next stop Marrakesh Morocco!

Tell help raise money for the Movember Foundation, Progressive MC and Ural teamed up to create the ultimate mobile barbershop. Led by the team at Nine Yard Designs, the sidecar has been converted to accomodate a barbershop chair and boot shine station that pulls out from the bike. After your done, slide it back in and hit the road!
Come see this bike along with new 2017 models at the New York Progressive Motorcycle Show, Dec 9-11th!
This year we’ll be at both the Long Beach (11/18 – 11/20) and NYC (12/9 – 12/11) Progressive Motorcycle Shows!
In addition to having some of our newest bikes, we’re also unveiling a very special custom bike made for Progressive’s on-site barbershop, Flo’s Chop Shop!
Every year we invite our customers and fans to come work the booth with our team! If interested in joining the fun, contact us here!
Our factory was born in the midst of the Siberian winter in 1941.
The small town of Irbit on the western slopes of the Ural Mountains became an unlikely hub to supply motorcycles for the war effort.
The first motorcycles were sent to the front lines in February of 1942 and used in the Battle of Stalingrad.
During the war, 9,799 M72’s served in reconnaissance and dispatch detachments in addition to helping evacuate the wounded from battle fields.
As the war ended, the factory adapted to the growing post-war need for practical transportation.
The factory continued producing motorcycles with sidecars, building over 3 million units.
These military machines transformed into the functional vehicles of choice for ordinary folks and young families.
Today we carry on the legacy, building the best Ural yet.
To celebrate we’re offering up to $1,000 of new Urals!
This week Mihai and his family visit Cappadocia in central Turkey. With an ideal climate and sprawling landscapes, this is one of the world’s most popular places for hot air ballooning.
Mihai’s son, Vlad, with the perfect view of Turkey from the 2,000 feet above.
Cappadocia is home to Turkey’s “fairy chimneys”, pointed rocks formed from volcanic ash that rained across the region millions of years ago. Today, many consider these rocks good luck with some measuring over 130 feet tall!
After the balloon ride they were off to visit friends and scout for tomorrow’s adventure!
