    I assume you don't have a Ural.
    They are the complainer species of the 3 wheel genus of the motorcycle family of the wheeled vehicle order.

    Another way to describe them is that they are the Malamutes of the motorcycle world...Large, loud, slow, but can haul a lot of stuff and generate a lot of smiles.
