Are trailers OK in Europe for Ural????

Ranger Gobi:
Camouflage cream-beige-brown. At introduction to the market in 2011 it became the number one on the popularity list of Rangers. The Gobi is not as military in appearance as the Nato, much milder. Even old-hippies bought this bike.

Yes they are. You can also tow a trailer with a solo.

So Ural warranty is different over there? (I was not at all on the legal side).

From the Ural FAQ: (http://www.imz-ural.com/faq.html) I have seen a small trailer that can be towed behind a Ural, are they available?
No, we do not offer such a trailer here in the United States.

Yes.

Actually the warranty in the owner's manual says nothing about trailers.
It says.
"4. Use of bike for towing purpose will VOID warranty"
So don't tow any broke down Harleys, Hondas, BMWs , etc .

There is nothing I could find about towing at:
http://www.imz-ural.com/warranty.html

But this statement from there covers a multitude of sins.

"These Warranties Do Not Cover:
2. Parts or accessories affected or damaged by:
Unsuitable use in an application for which the part was not designed"

I towed a 1924 Model T roadster with my Ural when it would not start. It will just barely do it.

Photos or it didn't happen, love to see it.
I had a 1923 T model roadster when I was a kid.

Sorry, thought you meant LEGALLY, not warranty wise

Sorry can't post pics direct.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/4/3408/5...eb2916fb33.jpg

Should show a WW2 era BMW R71 military Biwagen with Anhaenger. Or Sidecar with trailer.
I have seen lots of these about over here in Europe with nobody paying that much attention.

Trailers are not uncommon here, with both two and three wheel people.

One of the UK importers made and sold a small caravan for towing behind Urals.

I guess the warranty is worth what it is worth.

When I got my first Ural from CSMI in 1999 I also had a VW Rabbet that was less reliable then the Ural. I towed the VW home with the 650 Patrol about 1/4 mile.

Wish I had pictures of towing my wife's Model T. She was driving the Model T and I was on Miss Ural with a 10 foot nylon strap between. We had unloaded the T in the street and needed to get her in the garage. The coldest night of the year in KC and once I got her moving it was all about building speed to get up the hill into the garage. One person cannot push a cold T as the transmission bands drag so the motor turns as you push.

Bweber,
Oh yeah, I remember the pictures of your wife's T Model as we use to call them.
Searched for the photos but couldn't find them.
