Seductive, yes...and temperamental too. If the Ural looks "right", what do you think of this? <table style="width:auto;"><tr><td><a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/Kv6iKrAZjveDVEXsXBdxk-kxeW-WPEx-AyaSXgtXDKo?feat=embedwebsite"><img src="https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-4EcjpjSw8h8/Tupsng2pi4I/AAAAAAAAAHU/HE0FWF1zIJc/s640/DSC02117.JPG" height="480" width="640" /></a></td></tr><tr><td style="font-family:arial,sans-serif; font-size:11px; text-align:right">From <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/101775235076020229665/NewSidecar?authuser=0&authkey=Gv1sRgCPOP1PW9j_jdIg&feat=embedwebsite">New Sidecar</a></td></tr></table> A Ural type tub that is 4" wider, which is a ton more space for the monkey. Maybe pick up a used 1150GSA or 12GSA for the tug and go with it. I say GSA because of the larger fuel tank and extended range. Cheers and good luck. Edit: The reverse thing doesn't seem to bother me. I carry a reverse gear in the sidecar (meaning my monkey). It's easy for either of us to back it up without any trouble outside of being stuck in the mud.
