You'll learn how to.....

If you buy a Ural & actually ride it enough, you will learn the difference between a rachet & a hatchet, but you'll also need both. That's why the thing has such a big trunk.

Oh & your left (wave) hand will get stronger from returning the near constant openning waves you'll be getting from all types of people, even LEOs.

And some come with a shovel to bury your shit already attached. It's Russian.

Yeah but that's true with ANY sidecar, I know I've had a Ural and I get the same reaction with my new rig.

Oh goody,

A new thread for the same people to say the same thing.

Anybody feel a merge coming?











But since we're being silly,
Urals rule, customs drool.

Yes, once "Lucky" and his sidekick discovers this new thread, I am sure he will be over here sh*tting all over everyone.

Funny, I read the other thread and came away thinking that a Ural might not be so bad as a fun, "buzz around town with the dog bike." I wouldn't buy a new one, but something older, cheap and in need of TLC might be a fun hobby bike.

Nothing can beat them for smiles per mile. It's the nearest thing to a cure for depression I've found.

Why you should buy a Ural

Why not?



But seriously, if you need to be "convinced" to buy anything, perhaps it's not for you. Do YOUR research. You'll find good and bad. Make YOUR judgement and spend (or not spend) YOUR money.

Me? I am happy with my 1997/2008 FrankenUral.

Bokad? Quite the opposite

You? Only one way to find out...

I drive mine hard, break it, cuss it, Swear I'm attaching a gl1000 or k100 to the sidecar... rebuild it, go on a trip, fall in love with it all over, repeat.....



Oh, and the fact that I busted the crank, front bearing, wrist pin clip (again, got that one figured out this time) and the whole rebuild is costing me about 100$, doesn't hurt the love affair at all.

Good luck, I put 2 deposits and had 1 air ticket to get one and both backed out last minute. Be ready they are hard to part with.

Part of the reason I got one was to expand my wrenching knowledge and experience.


And it has.
