We were approached by BMX legend / stuntman Mike Escamilla to provide a Gear-Up for a new commercial he’s shooting. After reading a script that involved cliff jumping, skydiving, and a sidecar chase we we’re more than happy to send a bike to California. Here’s a few shots from the past week.

We love when our customers dedicate blogs to their Ural adventures and share their stories. Minnesota rider and blogger behind Everyday Riding, Chris Luhman journeys his adventures from Minnesota and beyond. One story, however, was a bit “off the beaten path,” took place right in his hometown and we enjoyed it!
Each year in Luhman’s neighborhood, there is a community block party in the parking lot of a local church boasting all sorts of family oriented fun from ring toss to hay rides. Some Ural owners and friends got together and offered free sidecar rides to kids, while other helpers got the kids set up in helmets and goggles as they waited in line.
Luhman said, “We rode in formation slowly around the neighborhood. It was a sight. The kids loved it; they were giggling and laughing the whole way. We had a good time. Looking forward to next year.”
