Not yet , still building it. Installing 18" all interchangeable
/5 rear wheels all the way around. Including the spare.
using a Continental Twinduro on the rear for aggresive traction.
And will be using an older Ural hack. Gonna have alot of goodies.
Still will not look as good nor have the handling your bike has due
to all the special work Perry did on your rig.


I also have two other rigs: 2005 Ural Gear Up
1937 BMW R12 w/dnepr hack

And yes , i was there while ya'll were. I was picking up a bike from Perry.
I'm approx. 4 hrs. south of Ft. Worth.

Australian R100RS + Ural hack . . . basic black

ACE; I have to admit YOU have the prettier looking rig! Mine's more a beast . . . R100RS with RT Bars, deep sump, & 75 final ratio.


But earlier this year I had the steering mod from Perry fitted!

Eek Turn the Front Rack Around?

The rear is aligned in that way. Would doing that make any luggage on it less likely to fly off under acceleration?

That steering mod made the rig so much easier to steer than my 2005 Ural Patrol was. Good idea on the deep sump! I had Perry put one on mine.

Is your sidecar really on the left side? How does that work for you?

Sounds like it will be better suited to off-pavement than mine. Do you find many situations where you need your Ural Gear Up's 2WD?

2wd

Only in deep mud, sand and snow . Uphill under those conditions would
be really tough without 2wd. I ride lots of dirt roads around here and
only use it when crossing a muddy stream , pulling another rig out or
a log out of the road. You might use it all the time up in N.M.

Truth on the steering improvement. Formerly one had to maintain so much away-from-sidecar handlebar effort that the forks seemed to be twisted from axle to bars!!


Sidecars commonly are fitted to the LEFT in LH drive countries - countries that drive on the RIGHT are mainly where what Napoleon wanted, was deemed important! Then again , Napoleon was LEFT-handed!

Did the United States ever drive on the left?


Yes. The evidence we have been able to collect is mostly indirect, but it seems almost certain that in the early years of English colonization of North America, English driving customs were followed and the colonies drove on the left, gradually changing to right-hand driving after independence. Kincaid quotes an English author writing in 1806 as saying, "in some parts of the United States, it is a custom among the people to drive on the right side of the road," implying that in other parts, people still drove on the left. We also know for certain that the colonies farther north along the coast drove on the left well into the 20th century (see the question about Canada below). I have read that the first law requiring drivers to keep right was passed in Pennsylvania in 1792, and that similar laws were passed in New York in 1804 and New Jersey in 1813, but I don't yet have primary sources for this information so it is possible that these states weren't changing sides, but only codifying existing practices in law. Other anecdotes from various sources also support the conclusion that most states drove on the left until some time in the early 1800s. American cars had their steering wheels on the right (the best arrangement for driving on the left-hand side of the road) until the early 1900s (see the discussion of this below).
However, Kincaid is not convinced that left-hand driving was ever widespread in the American colonies. He points out that the colonists were not exclusively English (for example, the Dutch settlers of New Amsterdam, which later became New York, would have been accustomed to driving on the right), and says that the first vehicles used by the colonists were carts and postilion-control wagons such as the Conestoga, which are best driven on the right. Wagons like the stagecoach (best driven on the left) were not introduced until much later -- too late to change the established practice.

How does that work for you?

It means that I have to mount from the right, and that left-handers are the corners where flying the 'car is a danger, baring speed-reduction or sufficient ballast in the 'car.

Earlier kickstart model BMs could be difficult to -- kick! You have the hack bodywork at your backside.

Ural GearUps with 2WD are not road-registerable.

It WOULD be nice but the Mobec kit is too rich for my blood.

To run a cross-shaft to the RIGHT (as that is what's wanted in RHD countries) you need a singlesided rearend where the swingarm is on the LEFT, like this 2008 Honda CB1000R. The hub rotates, and is unobstructed, so makes a suitable place for fitting a universal to power a samespeed shaft to the RIGHT. Of course, a declutching system is required for hard pavement as the Ural GearUP also uses.


The R80ST Monolever is suitable, for this conversion, in LHD countries.
