The S10 was ok, but i just couldn't connect with it. Lastly, the Ural. Wow! I never wanted a funkier machine in my life! Sitting on it was similar to sitting on an atv or lawn tractor. It just seemed so utilitarian. Simple, yet beautiful.
So my pick for today? The Ural. Tomorrow? Probably one of the two Italian beauties (well, maybe the Stelvio is a beast).
I checked the Ural sidehacks out pretty good last year. Just looked them over I mean. Didn't ride one though. I have no idea how I'd get along with one in the real world but I will admit, there was a certain appeal that I can't really explain. If money and garage space were no object...
