    Dad, why is this speed limit sign at the corner yellow?

    Well son, those are called Ural signs.

    I bought a stick on type at our local farm supply store (Murdochs) and cut it to size. Was easy to do.

    Although it took a pinch more effort that I anticipated, I ordered (but haven't yet affixed) a pair of the [vehicle's] speed limit stickers that are used in England. Done for the novelty value, and sized for easy application on the rear of the sidecar.

    If I could buy a reflective sticker that was 1/2 that size (8" wide x 7" tall instead of 16" wide x 14" tall), I would buy one. I just dont want to make my bike less aerodynamic by adding the big version...

    And now... Back to quotes about Urals.

    A bike so slow, you want an optimally sized slow moving vehicle sign.

    Regarding the vehicle speed limit stickers over here.
    Thanks to the widespread use of 20mph limits in residential areas there are now three speed limits my 650 Ural can easily exceed.

    20.....30....and 40. :D

    The 50 one is only attainable in favourable conditions. :D :D

    I highly doubt that a sticker on a Ooral will change its aerodynamics. :rofl:rofl:rofl

    It is like a Citroen 2CV: ugly-cute, slow, noisy but... more fragile!

    A Ural is like a Ford Pinto, only without the sophistication and refinement.
