bought a used GS last month...

In the interest of being a good husband, how long should I wait before I buy a Ural?

First, buy her gear... then buy a Ural with a side car.

Depends

If you have a dog get the Ural now. If not, get a dog then you will still have a sidecar buddy.

Buy him a pair of Doggles, the wife will think it's sooooooooo cute and you're instantly approved for the Ural.

Take her away for the weekend one time on the GS. Only give her one pannier to keep all her crap in.

Hey presto: Instant approval for an outfit, on the understanding she can continue to ride pillion, but the car is to carry her luggage.

Feh....If you are the kind of guy who would buy a Ural, you aren't going to listen to good advice anyhow.

If you have want it and can comfortably afford it just go buy it. If it's going to cause some financial strain then maybe you should talk to the wife first.
