    I think it is a Ural.

    Judging by the trend in membership numbers over the past few years.....not too many ! And I can think of a few other possible reasons.

    But the owner is probably planning on installing a BMW engine in the rig. Yeah, yeah that's our story and we are sticking to it.

    Yes, it was really funny - I'm crying here... Russian hack... Oh I have fainted.


    About Urals... I hear the new ones will have more cooling surface on nikasil cylinders and have new designed pistons and heads with different exhaust port configuration. None of that means anything to me really but, the improvements should make a competent machine even more so. They are popular for a variety reasons. A doctor I spoke with wants a camo Ural to tool around the neighborhood on his way to the jogging circuit. Several folks Ive met with Urals were missing body parts and an inexpensive sidecar gave them the ability to enjoy riding again. We should ask the magazine editor what the idea was. The camo Ural pictured in this thread would have disappeared in the cover photo :-)

    It says- "A sidehack riding the Silverado Trail in Napa Vally". Looks like a Member's picture.

    I'm happy the rider isn't trying to outrun a fire

    from Planet Dirt

    Not used to side cars but I have always liked them, even before I liked motorcycles. My all time favorite is the BMW R 75.
    Made originally ( of course ) by BMW for the German Army. This bike's technology for the year was amazing,.......at the point that the American Army wanted one and asked Harley Davidson to build one ...........but at the end the JEEP was the all terrain vehicle of choice and killed the potential development of an American Motorcycle with side car.
    I think the bike was designed and a few of them were tested, but as soon as the Army optioned for the Jeep, the project ended.
    ......if BMW re-designs and start selling R 75s again..........my wife will not have an excuse to ride with me anymore...........

    .......enjoy the ride.......
