    True story:

    My wife: "How did the test ride go, did you get it sold?"

    Me: "It broke down while I was giving the prospective owner a ride. I don't think it wants to leave home."

    My wife: "Hahahahahaha"

    Ural. The only thing that doesn't make noise is the horn.

    Ride. Wrench. Repeat.

    Dnepr. Essentially a Ural without all the attention to detail.

    The most fun you can have with your clothes on.

    Handles like a truck with all the left tires blown out.

    Shift pattern: One stomp forward, three stomps back.

    Hardware and fasteners made by Play-Doh.

    Brakes so bad that you have to plan your stops with Map Quest.

    It's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than a fast bike slow.

    Cheap. Fast. Reliable. Pick any two and the other one won't apply. Pick a Ural and none of them apply.

    Also, more fun than you’re legally allowed to have.
