Cold-War Bike by Ural Sparks Sidecar Revival

Ural Motorcycles are Soviet-style sidecar motorbikes that have been made in Siberia since World War II. But in 2000 a group of Russian entrepreneurs led by Ilya Khait bought the brand, left manufacturing in Russia, moved headquarters to Seattle, and began marketing the bikes to young riders with discretionary funds and wanderlust. Bloomberg Pursuit’s Hannah Elliott went to Seattle to try out one of these cold-war relics. (Video by Zach Goldstein)

Freaky ass cool motorcycle. I have a VTC1100C, which I love, but will own a Ural some day.

I have this weird idea of driving around with a great dane in the sidecar.

I was riding threw the open Country in florida and yes these places do exist in the middle central part of the state houses five miles apart etc all farm land and passed a ural dealer and repair shop i was shocked and stooped in and talked to the guy. This guy has the worst location for a motorcycle ahop working on only one rare type of motorcycle.
