The Bike

For this expedition we choose a 2010 Ural Patrol. The solid russian construction and the large carrying capacity make it a perfect vehicle for extended overland travel. With no fuel injection, 2 valves, and 50 horsepower this is one of the simplest vehicle available on the market.  After six months of work and extensive preparation the bike is now ready to hit the road.  Discover more about the bike.
 

The Route

The journey will take us through 17 countries in Central and South America. Despite having only roughly planned the route and knowing that many stops are mandatory, we are going to let the road carry us as much as possible. Some of the major challenges will be reaching places like the Holmul ruins, crossing the Darien Gap, and going through the Atacama desert. Take a look at our approximate route...

The idea is simple: drive from San Francisco to Buenos Aires.
It has been done by so many people that is almost mainstream these days.
So to make it more interesting we picked one of the most interesting and unique vehicle ever made...

A Ural Patrol! 

Imz-Ural is a russian manufacturer of motorcycles with sidecar with a long history. Our first contact with the Ural world happened at the Overland Expo in 2013, where Marc Tetreau of Kalaber Creations offered us a ride. It was love at first "ride" and that was the beginning of a year long search for the perfect bike.

The solid russian construction and the large carrying capacity make it a perfect vehicle for extended overland travel. With no fuel injection, no electronic, 2 valves, and 50 horsepower this is one of the simplest vehicle available on the market. The lack of delicate electronic components makes it easy to repair anywhere in the world. The on-demand 2 wheel drive makes this bike capable of tackling the most difficult terrain. After six months of work and extensive preparation the bike is ready to tackle the roughest roads on the 15'000 miles journey through Central and South America across 17 different countries.
