Just do it. Every day spent analyzing is a day not spent riding the toy you want. Throw caution to the winds. I have been riding Urals now for 6 years. Every day was an adventure; stop worrying about something breaking. It probably wont; remember the rule of the internet; if its bad news, you are sure to hear it a thousand times and louder than someone talking about good times.

I've had good times on mine.
