Well, actually, I'm an ADV noob too, but that's beside the point. I got my KLR and I've finally ridden on what I'd call a long ride (Cromag and back) and I've set a goal for myself to acheive in the next 9 years. I wanna go to Alaska. Problem is, my 12 y.o. son wants to go. I immediately thought about Urals. Granted, by the time I'll be ready to go, he'll be old enough to ride his own bike (though he seems to lack any interest), but I was thinking in the meantime, there are plenty of places I could take him. So in short, what I'm asking is what sorta things do I need to consider when riding/packing/travelling w. passenger. I've seen there are schools for sidecars. What about cost? Edumacate me, please.
