    Wouldn't surprise me in the least. I've seen some pretty unique stuff in montucky. Butte is an interesting town for sure. Evil Knievel days are just one of many reasons to visit. Folk festival is pretty hoppin'.

    Thanks! Don't fret for the lack of forest road pictures. You'll have more than you want to look at soon.

    Its pretty amazing to be riding along on this trip, and then look over my buddy in the sidecar. In my wildest dreams of youth, I never thought I'd be able to go on a trip like this with my dog.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the latest instalment - this is making my summer grounded here in the Pyrenees so much happier.

    I've posted a link on the UK based ABR forum, where there are quite a few sidecar bikers - some still 'in the closet' :lol3 - who I'm sure will love your report too.

    I've also taken the liberty of posting two screen shots of your lead images - if you have any problem with this just let me know and I'll strike them, of course.

    Regs

    Rebel, I just asked my wife if she would get a Ural so I can get a dog. She said maybe!!! :raabia

    She wanted the solo though... "i don't want one with that silly sidecar" she says. Then I showed her the ride report with your sidekick in the sidecar, tongue hanging out, doggles on, ears flapping in the breeze. That's about when she keeled over.

    Love it. Have fun!

    Not being nit-picky, but I think what he had said was probably "dasveedanya" which means "goodbye."

    I'm loving this RR! It actually made me think of getting a Ural! :rofl

    My wife also now wants a Ural, not sure if its because she wants to ride in it with me, or wants to get another Dog (our aged Lab passed on last year). Pet travel should be the basis of Ural's next ad campaign. Love the report. :clap

    Who the heck needs an oar on a motorcycle? Seems the shovel would be much more helpful.

    Loving this RR. I have always had a fascination with the Ural Gear Up.

    BTW, props for the Bruins hat! Are you from Boston?

    I would want some sort of oar/paddle for when I found myself up the proverbial creek. :D

    I had the pleasure of test-riding an Ural at Ural HQ in Austria recently and I have no doubt yours can make the trip just fine :evil

    The yamal was an iceboat, which is where that oar ridiculous grin is from. I think I read that a shovel was an accessory option though! It is a super practical chase rig if you get the winch and the other 6k worth of options...
