Camping in Raspadalica

One the best parts of owning a Ural is the ability to pack your gear and ride with your favorite co-pilots.  Dominik recently took his Ural Gear Up camping in Raspadalica, Croatia with his wife and their dog, Higgs.

Located 1,800ft above sea level, the campsite makes for an excellent launch site for hang gliding.

Raspadalica doesn't feature access to hot water or electricity but the owners of the property insisted on building an infinity pool at the edge of the hang glide hill. This gives guests an amazing opportunity to enjoy sunsets and views from their own private pool.

After hang gliding, you can take a 45 minute ride to Sipar beach in the seaside town Mošćenička Draga.

Vibrant water and excellent restaurants make this beach town a favorite among locals and tourists alike.

Reports From The Field

This week we're checking back in with Mihai and his family on their current summer tour exploring Central Asia.  Last post they were beginning their journey in Uzbekistan on their Ural Gear Up.

Now 4 weeks later they've ridden the Pamir Highway to Kyrgyzstan on the Western border of China.

The highest point of their journey, Ak-Baital Pass in the Pamir Mountains in Tajikistan. At 4,655 meters (15,270 ft) it's the highest point of the M41 highway.

Up high on the Wakhan valley in Tajikistan.

As the world's oldest sidecar motorcycle manufacture we often have customers sending us pictures of great flea market finds.  Mihai found this vintage Ural badge at a small market in Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan!

Leaving Tajikistan for Kyrgyzstan, everyone was feeling the lack of oxygen during a stretch break on the Pamir Highway.

The mountain pass right before arriving at Song Kol Lakein Kyrgyzstan. 

Home for the night, sleeping in a yurt near Song Kol Lake!
