With nothing more than their horse, a knife, and a poncho, the cowboys of the Americas, or gauchos as there known elsewhere, rambled through the country, living off the land, taking each day as it came, always on a journey towards the sunset. The rebel spirit of the gaucho is very much in the heart and soul of each Ural. Taking to the road, with no specific goal in mind is something every rider longs for…
Introducing the 2013 American West-inspired limited edition Ural Gaucho Rambler, a motorcycle created in collaboration with Pendleton Woollen Mills.
year’s limited edition Ural is a wistful homage to a past age. The
colour is new, chosen by Pendleton, and we named it Pacific Blue. The
bike comes with sunburned canvas upholstery and a “Journey West” blanket
by Pendleton. This is a bike ready for the long road and the
spiritual journey devoid of stuff. No need to pack, no need to prepare,
there’s nothing to do but go!
Gaucho Rambler has the specs of a Tourist model, but of course comes
with extras, which include: a rider fairing, sidecar windscreen, a
Pendleton woollen rug, an enamel picnic set,
canvas tonneau and seat covers, single saddle seat and a rear fender
rack. It has its own unique paint job and there are only 3 available in
and Pendleton are two companies which at different points in time
ventured out to find home in the American West. Both endured,
persevered and all the while managed to preserve their authenticity.
This year Pendleton’s anniversary celebrates 150 years of American made
textiles and Ural marks its 20th in the US. Paying homage to our
beginnings and the pioneering spirit is what connects the two brands
and inspired this collaboration.
West is where we all plan to go some day. It is where you go when the
land gives out and the old-field pines encroach. It is where you go
when you get the letter saying: Flee, all is discovered. It is where
you go when you look down at the blade in your hand and the blood on
it. It is where you go when you are told that you are a bubble on the
tide of empire. It is where you go when you hear that thar’s gold in
them-thar hills. It is where you go to grow up with the country. It is
where you go to spend your old age. Or it is just where you go.” —Robert Penn Warren
