    Oh goody,

    A new thread for the same people to say the same thing.

    Anybody feel a merge coming?











    But since we're being silly,
    Urals rule, customs drool.

    Yes, once "Lucky" and his sidekick discovers this new thread, I am sure he will be over here sh*tting all over everyone.

    Funny, I read the other thread and came away thinking that a Ural might not be so bad as a fun, "buzz around town with the dog bike." I wouldn't buy a new one, but something older, cheap and in need of TLC might be a fun hobby bike.

    Nothing can beat them for smiles per mile. It's the nearest thing to a cure for depression I've found.

    Why not? :freaky



    But seriously, if you need to be "convinced" to buy anything, perhaps it's not for you. Do YOUR research. You'll find good and bad. Make YOUR judgement and spend (or not spend) YOUR money.

    Me? I am happy with my 1997/2008 FrankenUral.

    Bokad? Quite the opposite

    You? Only one way to find out...

    I drive mine hard, break it, cuss it, Swear I'm attaching a gl1000 or k100 to the sidecar... rebuild it, go on a trip, fall in love with it all over, repeat.....



    Oh, and the fact that I busted the crank, front bearing, wrist pin clip (again, got that one figured out this time) and the whole rebuild is costing me about 100$, doesn't hurt the love affair at all.

    Good luck, I put 2 deposits and had 1 air ticket to get one and both backed out last minute. Be ready they are hard to part with.

    Part of the reason I got one was to expand my wrenching knowledge and experience.

    I'll say it again the URAL is the best thing I've ever bought for my wife! She loves it and rides it along with me all over.

    Ten Great reasons to buy a Ural.

    #1 The Ural Mothership will go above and beyond what any other motorcycle company in the world would do for its riders.
    #2 The Ural warranty will allow you to do your own warranty repairs if you like.
    #3 You cannot buy a new bike and add a new sidecar to it for less than what a new Ural will cost you. Even if you could,
    you probably just voided the warranty on that new bike in the process.
    #4 You can ride 3 up if need - try that on any other bike
    #5 If you get a flat you can change it yourself and keep riding. If you get a flat on any other bike, your calling a tow truck.
    #6 Urals are "Chick Magnets".
    #7 Your dog will love riding with you.
    #8 If you have kids or grandkids, they will love riding with you.
    #9 You can have "Two Wheel Drive" if you want for true off road capablility and you have reverse to boot.
    #10 Where ever you go, people will gather around your bike to check it out. You will hear things like "that is one bad ass bike, I
    bet the chicks dig it, I want one too, I would glady sell all my belongings to own one". You will never be just another bike in
    sea of Harleys.

    Do yourself a favor, BUY A URAL, you deserve it and your family deserves it!

    When you buy a Ural, you will constantly grin.

    When you constantly grin, people want to talk to you.

    When people want to talk to you, it includes supermodels.

    When it included supermodels, you hit it off with one.

    When you hit it off with one, you grin even more.

    When you grin even more, your face becomes stuck.

    When your face becomes stuck, you get plastic surgery.

    When you get plastic surgery, the surgeon botches it.

    When the surgeon botches it, you file a lawsuit for malpractice.

    When you file a lawsuit for malpractice, you win the lawsuit.

    When you win the lawsuit, you get lots and lots of money.

    When you have lots and lots of money, you keep your supermodel girlfriend despite your now hideous face.

    When you keep your supermodel girlfriend, you also have a Ural.

    And lots and lots of money.

    Buy a Ural and get lots and lots of money and a supermodel girlfriend.

    My problem is that my face is hideous to begin with, so I am stuck in this catch 22 circle: perhaps I should get the Ural, then find a surgeon to fix my face first, then file the lawsuit, then use the money to get a new face and then, maybe, I would attract the supermodel... Or maybe not, but I would still have the Ural!
