Recently, I logged more than 1000 miles on a Ural Gear Up. Many of those miles were spent on pavement, however, some of the most fun I had was riding it off-road. Bouncing the big three-wheeled machine through dirt trails and over rocky stream crossings was a blast. Something I didn’t have a chance to try while on the Ural, though, was riding on a frozen lake, or frozen anything for that matter.
