you can get one of these instead ... complete!
.. unfreakin' believable... :thumbup:

(my share of the "cold war" spoils?)

and, you don't even need no fancy twisties to ride on..
.. just plain ol' "boring" Florida roads will scare the crap out of you..
(if the "curve" says 35 mph, don't try and take it at 40):eek:4:

and, I was able to bring home a really BIG watermelon from the
farmers market..
(never could do THAT on my 'wing)

... now, I wonder what kind of car tire will fit on it ...:cool:

... life is good ...

I've often wondered does the spare tire on a Ural fit the front and rear of the bike as well as the sidecar?

All three tires are the same size.

The spare is a "bolt on" for either the bike rear wheel or the sidecar wheel.
(the sidecar and rear bike wheel are drum brakes).

.. I think it used to be a "bolt on" for the front wheel too,
back when the front wheel also had drum brakes.
But now, the front has a disc brake..
.. so the tire would fit, but you'd have to swap it off the spare.

I think...

My neibor rides her's to church each Sunday, it turns a lot of heads. I understand the new ones are updated buts her's is right out of the 1940's. I helped her with a minor problem a year ago and it was like taking a trip in th way back machine.

major changes are 2007 and up..
.. basic advice is avoid earlier ones unless you REALLY REALLY like to work
on your bike.

Will the turbo go on the bike or in the sidecar?:eek:4:
... come on Joe...
with all that extra room,
twin turbos should be very doable ...
.. and a HUGE NOX bottle in the 'car..

Looks awesome Dennis, you just need the machine gun mount on the sidecar. That should help with traffic jams. I have wanted to test ride one, just have not had the chance. Enjoy the new ride!!
