We are excited to see you.
More Than Motorcycles is a family-owned business with over 20 years experience in the motorcycle, aircraft, and all-terrain vehicle business. Our founding principles include honesty, integrity, fairness, and making you a safe and informed Ural motorcycle enthusiast for life.
We are a stocking dealer for Ural, including a full complement of parts, custom accessories, and genuine, old fashioned service with a smile! Please feel free to give us a call to experience first hand, the beauty and usefulness of this unique mode of transportation.....Let's Ride!
The main bike models built in the plant today are the heavy-duty Ural sidecar motorcycles, designed with rough Russian roads in mind, and the custom Wolf. There are many places in Russia where only horses and Ural motorcycles can be used to transport gear where you need it. Ural motorcycles are equipped with four-stroke air-cooled flat-twin engines, a four-speed gearbox with reverse gear, shaft drive, two disc dry clutch, spring shock absorbers, and front disc brakes, and drum brakes on rear and sidecar. New solo and sidecar models have been developed recently to better suit the tastes of Western markets.
Ural is the only Russian manufacturer of heavy capacity motorcycles, and one of only a few manufacturers of sidecar motorcycles in the world. Besides sales of Ural motorcycles on the Russian market, they have also been exported to Australia, Britain, the United States, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Greece, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Germany, Egypt, Iran, South Africa, Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay, and numerous other countries. Over 3.2 million motorcycles have been delivered since the first M-72 rolled off the production floor.
The future looks bright for Ural, constantly improving its role as a versatile and economical form of transport that is fun to ride and easy to maintain. The story is far from over.

Air Force Blaster Classic
Metro’s classic Air Force® Blaster®has taken the motorcycle industry by storm, quickly earning a reputation among professionals and bikers alike as the most powerful and efficient dryer available. With a body of steel and powerful 4.0 Peak Horsepower, twin-fan motor, it blasts water off bikes in seconds cutting drying time by 75-80%! It leaves no spots or oily residue and completely eliminates Afterstreaking™, those annoying streaks that appear out of nowhere when you start riding caused by hidden water drops. With the Blaster®, water has no place to hide™! The Blaster® is also safer (great for older bikes and expensive customs) and more efficient than compressed air or leaf blowers
Air Force Side Kick
For riders who want a high-quality, high-performance, American-made, super-compact portable, Metro is proud to introduce the all-new, all-steelBlaster®SideKick®! It features a powerful 1.3 HP motor that pumps out 18,000 feet-per-minute of warm (25-30 degrees above ambient) dry, filtered air that will thoroughly dry a full-size road bike in minutes. Yet, at a mere 9.5” high and weighing just a hair over three lbs., the SideKick® is small enough and light enough to ride comfortably in a saddlebag. It plugs into any standard 120-volt outlet and is equally at home in the driveway or on the road. Priced at under $100, the SideKick® also makes an economical pack-along to complement your home-basedBlaster® or Master Blaster®!
Air Force Master Blaster
For those who want even more power and versatility, there’s the Air Force® Master Blaster® with its two, twin-fan, 4.0 Peak HP motors (total of 8 Peak HP) capable of delivering up to 58,500 feet-per-minute of clean, dry, warm, filtered air! Each motor is controlled by a separate switch that allows you to select any of three different airflow and temperature level combinations. The Master Blaster® also makes a great touchless car dryer.
Was it because of my early association with BMW motorcycles that I was drawn to Ural Gear-Up motorcycle, or was it because a Ural looks like it’s poised to conquer the Sahara? I’m not sure, and it doesn’t really matter. Bloodlines or aggressive posture aside, it’s really the adventurousness of the Ural that’s appealing. The can-do, pioneering attitude that’s ingrained in the American psyche and the urge to see what’s beyond the horizon makes the allure of this boxer-engined two-cylinder machine magnetic.
