Ghost, check this rig out,but if you want one you'll have to get another job or two.

I wonder how controllable it is...I would like to have a hack one day...I like the idea of 2 wheel drive but Urals just seem so shoddy

I love the look of a Ural Gear-Up but I cannot imagine a worse choice for me.

I'm pretty sure most everything on a Ural can be fixed with a BFH.

I rode with a fella last weekend with a red and white GSPD. Really nice. I told him that I want his bike with one of those painted to match off-road sidecars. That to me is the ultimate hack rig. I'll get one some day.

Well, my pogo stick is back home and the new shock works...but I'm tip toe again. Guess I got used to it sagging a bit. Seems to me it'll break in a bit over time too.

Found this motorcycle ergonomics "calculator". It gives stock ergos of your bike then you input height, bar and seat adjustments etc.
