21 Russian Legendary Bikes URAL

Russian Legendary Bikes URAL

"Ural" is a brand of Russian motorbikes, which has recently become a sort of cult in the USA for some reason. Basically, this is probably the only consumer automotive technology being imported into the States, and they say that even Brad Pitt has one. Why are they so popular its hard to say, but what is obvious is that this make and model has not been changed since the 50s or 60s, at least visually, and maybe that's what attracts the customers. In Russia, they cost
a fraction of how much they are being marketed for in USA, and this is why: a lot of top notch Western components are being used in those "Soviet" machines: Marzochi, Sanchs, Denso, Ducati, Yuasa, Brembo, etc - all those brands are used to assemble the bikes that now only visually remind us of their Soviet fathers. And here is someone has visited the URAL factory in the town of Irbit, which is in Ural mountains. Here we have it:

10 An Abandoned Interplanetary Communication Link Centre

An Abandoned Interplanetary Communication Link Centre

"Tens of kilometers thru the snow, on foot. Barely walkable path thru the forest. Holding our breath we understand with each step we are getting closer and closer to the object. The place we made all this way is just around the corner". - this is how Ulter1or remembers his trip to this huge satellite abandoned complex deep in the woods. He, is like the other
explorator Armahema, doesn't give away his real name - they explore the places that are often forbidden to enter, so the secrecy might be a must for them. However the photos he bring back are purely awesome. Massive post inside, a huge - over 25 meters (or 75 feet!) in diameter abandoned scientific satellite dish  just around the corner!
