Rebel, I just asked my wife if she would get a Ural so I can get a dog. She said maybe!!!

She wanted the solo though... "i don't want one with that silly sidecar" she says. Then I showed her the ride report with your sidekick in the sidecar, tongue hanging out, doggles on, ears flapping in the breeze. That's about when she keeled over.

Love it. Have fun!

He ended the conversation and walked away just as quickly as it had begun. As he drove away, he shouted from the window Du-sudanya! which I think means “Good luck”.
Not being nit-picky, but I think what he had said was probably "dasveedanya" which means "goodbye."

I'm loving this RR! It actually made me think of getting a Ural!

My wife also now wants a Ural, not sure if its because she wants to ride in it with me, or wants to get another Dog (our aged Lab passed on last year). Pet travel should be the basis of Ural's next ad campaign. Love the report.

Who the heck needs an oar on a motorcycle? Seems the shovel would be much more helpful.

Loving this RR. I have always had a fascination with the Ural Gear Up.

BTW, props for the Bruins hat! Are you from Boston?

Actually, that was a paddle.

Mt ex wife was an oar and she didn't look anything like that!

I would want some sort of oar/paddle for when I found myself up the proverbial creek.

Subscribing!
I had the pleasure of test-riding an Ural at Ural HQ in Austria recently and I have no doubt yours can make the trip just fine

The yamal was an iceboat, which is where that oar ridiculous grin is from. I think I read that a shovel was an accessory option though! It is a super practical chase rig if you get the winch and the other 6k worth of options...
