Pissed Why you should buy a Ural

Ok the thread for why you should not buy a Ural has gone Viral!!

Here's why you should buy a Ural!!


It's the only motorcycle sidecar combo you can buy as a new vechile 2012!!

You can finace it $250 a month for 4 years!!!!

A personal bank loan or LOC will finance whatever you want it to, and the rate is better...

Our "T" was purchased to let our 80 pound chocolate "lab" Brutus join our motorcycling adventures. What a great choice the Ural was. We just returned from some of the finest motorcycling in the country on Michigans far north U.P. Brutus and his Ural continue to bring smiles to everybody's face but mostly to his. Make no mistake it is his motorcycle. Reason enough for me to buy a Ural.

1v 2WD:
I have a Patrol w/2 wheel drive. There is a road near me with multiple water crossing in the 3-6" range. I only switch it into 2WD when there have been heavy rains and 3-6" turns into more like 6-10". I'm pretty sure I would not really need it even then but there is no way I want to find out, mid-stream. Basically unless you are doing heavy off road riding in deep stuff I doubt it would be necessary. The exception to that as Windmill points out is snow. In snow and ice it can be very, very handy which is why I bought it

Dog Size
My lab is 85 pounds and he has plenty of room. I've also had 6'6" guys in there who are pushing 250 so I doubt a 100lb+ dog is going to be a problem. Actually one of the not-so-obvious benefits of a Ural is the amount of stuff you can carry. A well equipped touring bike might be able to handle a few weeks worth of kit. A Ural could carry a month or two's worth to say nothing of a weeks woth of groceries, a keg of beer, firewood, tools to build a log cabin and just a out anything else you can think of. If no one is sitting in the chair there is a whole lot of space for carrying stuff and that's before you even open the trunk.

Are the wheel bearings "old school" and not sealed?

Even with sealed bearings, I really hate water crossings. It wont bite you today, but 8 months from now, when it's dark, and raining, and ccccold...

Nope, they are special deep groove sealed bearings. I ride every day here in the wonderful wet northwest, plenty of slush/snow riding, even an occasional water crossing, and mine are all still good at over 70,000km.

Can you post photos of those sealed bearings and maybe a link as to where we could purchase them?...

Thanks and be well... Ara and Spirit

I would agree, from a maintance perspective, they are likely not a good idea. From a fun perspective, however, they are a riot, particulary with an unsuspecting monkey on board. My '08 tho has likely seen a few hundred of them with no I'll effects to date. Just try to avoid getting in to water deeper than the tub, that sucker makes for a pretty good boat which doesn't exactly help traction

Ural in BMW Land

Took my 2005 Ural Patrol to the BMW Rally in Missouri this year. You wouldn't believe the dirty looks and razzing I got

from the BMW sidecarists every time I slipped it into REVERSE


as they pushed their rigs backwards.


Priceless!

Yeah, we can't believe anybody is so friggin lazy that they need a reverse for something so easy to push!

Urals are okay if that's what you're into. Personally, the thing I like best about sidecar meets is that there is so much variety, so much experimentation (trial and error) among the hacks. Urals? Sort of like the HD of the sidecar world. They're pretty much all cut from the same mold and I rarely see them far from home.

But whatever floats your boat.
