Ural Solo More Reliable Than A Ural Hack?

Right now I'm vacillating between a Ural M70 sidecar and M70 Solo. Would the Solo somehow be more reliable than a hack due to much less physical weight and stress? The bike would be outfitted with a BMW engine conversion.

Bloody, Nora. At this rate you are going to give Tarka an aneurysm

Can you riddle us what the advantage would be in sticking a bm' engine in a Ural if there is no sidecar, as apposed to just buying the entire bm', riding it, and be done with it ?

I'm one of those fellows that likes having a custom motorcycle project just because it's a project that's custom.

Tarka, bless 'im, can indeed be sensitive about questions getting asked on a forum where people digitally gather to, you know, ask questions.

Admit it, you think he's dreamy. Besides, I'd wager you enjoy your nemesis's contributions

A dealer near me in Crystal Lake IL (Scoots4u) has a new 2010 Ural solo for $4999. It is nicely setup with windshield and flat seat.

Why would one want one ? The engines almost industrial for use as a tug , they sold almost none of the singles the market has spoken, for 5k one could find allot of alternatives.

I know I guess I shouldn't have quoted you but the questions still the same the motor is an industrial design and it's about having torque to move a sidecar not zip around on a single.DB

But not a one of them would be a M70. You know, I could have married my wife, or just some other alternative.

It would be fun to try a new solo. Never ridden one or any BMW for that matter so am not an expert on them. Maybe later for me.
