Man, I NEVER see any sidecars! You guys are lucky, I want to hack my GS but don't have much real-life reference other than a ride in a Ural sidecar.

I saw one in 2005 (a Ural) and one in 2010 (a Goldwing).

There's one in my garage just waiting for me to get it running..

At rallies, I expect to see one or two most times(often the same ones). Other than that maybe 4 a year out and about.

I'm also in Seattle, and have only ran across a few. i see a red Ural in Pioneer Square every now and then. i passed a camo gear up on Westlake this summer. And at Backfire Moto there are always a few, but usually less than five. Last month I noticed a red Ural Patrol with a ADV sticker. I never did see the owner.

I'm in Billings and don't see many hacks here. Saw one sitting solo in a car port this summer.

live just off the BRP and ride it almost every week, rarely see sidecars but see trikes daily. Seeing a lot more Can-Am Spyders, some from a long ways away. Still haven't seen another Ural on the BR, must not ride enough.

My wife and I rode our rig into Portland a couple of weekends ago.

While we were eating at McMenamin's on NW 23d two hacks drove by: A Ural and an old BMW airhead with what looked to be a Sputnik or something similar.

Of course I see Vernon Wade in Hood River occasionally, and once in a while a young chap on a Ural - don't know who he is or if he is just out visiting the area, and one of my wife's co-workers has a Ural.

Other than that, hack sightings a scarce.

That's because you didn't come to BURP!

So far I only see them if I call the other owners and schedule a ride.

I never see any unless I ride to a M/C event, even then they are rare.

I have seen a Ural up near Wolverine, MI twice in the last two years, and someone parked a GS/Ural rig on my street a few years ago. I usually see one or two at the Brit bike show in the Detroit area every September.
