    Actually a 3 wheel drive, you can see the side car wheel spinning when he gets it out of the mud hole. Never seen anything like it.

    Looks like a variant of the tried and trusted Cossack Ural - great bikes for rough roads ......

    Funny thing is he could probably have gotten through with a 1wd version at like 15 mph lol.

    Most definitely an Ural, named after the mountain range. (pronounced OOO-Rall, not You-Rall) On some models the sidecars have a drive wheel. I think a lot of the military models had this. I've never ridden one but been up close to a few and they are built in typical Russian fashion, heavy, durable but not very flashy. I myself, would love to have one.

    We have a dealer nearby. The fit and finish in the newer bikes way better. Two wheel drive (rear wheel has a cross shaft that drives the sidecar) in flat desert tan will set you back about 17k, complete with military shovel and Gerry can strapped on.

    Way freaken cool.

    There is a dealer in Ferndale WA wayyyy up near the Canada border ad haven't been to it but there is a dealer in Helena MT that I visited and had a chance to sit on one. And you're right Smitty, they are very cool.

    Heavy, yes, but durable...? I've seen many accounts of horrendous reliability of Ural motorcycles.

    I've looked at them many times over the years wanting another hack, but have been disappointed in the quality. Last year at the motorcycle show up here, I looked again. I saw chrome that was plated so thin, that you could almost see the metal beneath. I was sure if it got left out in the rain, that those parts would have rusted in no time. They have to do better than that for me.

    As a Uralist I can tell you that is not all Ural, the engine looks like a 650 the frame looks to be BMW WWII vintage

    They are fun I have 48,000 on my Ural and have been commuting year round on her since the fall of 2011. Never been stranded. She is an AK47 not an AR15.

    Like many motorcycles you get to meet great people and make new friends. The Ural riders are very much like TW riders a good down to earth crowd.
