MC Commute: 2017 Ural Gear-Up Sidecar

Motorcyclist staffer Zack Courts is always arriving to office after his commute with a bunch of opinions about the bike he’s riding. Too much this, not enough that, and occasionally has some decent insights. We thought some of it might help consumers or entertain enthusiasts, so we strapped a camera and microphone to the side of his helmet and told him to turn it on when he leaves his house. A lot of him talking in his helmet is complaining about drivers, yelling at red lights, and wondering why billboards aren’t more expensive. But sometimes he actually talks about the bike, and those are the parts we keep. Got a bike you would like to see discussed? Let us know and we’ll send him home on that one next.

Not sure why all these moto vlogger guys feel they have to swing there hands around constantly while talking at a stop light. Every single one of them does it. Its not sign language.

WWII Tank says:

Nice bike, i love its colour.

Richard moore says:

actually ,the germans gave russia 5 1939 bmw’s that they tooled up and started producing in 2013 gear up doesn’t have a low fuel light.

capitan von chicken pants says:

Motorcycle and sidecarbuncle bloody horrible things buy a car

Hi Bye says:

Ural made these to fight the Germans in Stalingrad and now ironically they use a German engine. Wow

M Simpson says:

Wa wa wa wa WHAT!!!! where was the traditional wheelie when you start from that one stop light on that straight away that veers slightly to the left?

Ed Pikestone says:

What is it like with a passenger in the sidecar? Why not stick Ari in the side car and do a joint review?

rockyfan1011 says:

Holy shit I want that so much. I would ride it daily.

jools2323 says:

I had a Cossack 650 in the early 80s. Completely painted with black Hammerite, huge springs under the seats, reverse gear. Every time I went out on it something fell off it.
Happy days.

john benjamin says:

i’d love one,but not at £16500.that fucking ridiculous .

Max Nafa says:

they weren’t reversed engineered after WW2. Blueprints purchased and went into production in 1940

Serdones says:

Love the style of the bike itself too. I’m currently riding a 2015 Rebel after getting my endorsement this spring, but I’d love to upgrade to something with similar retro styling like this next spring. And I’ve definitely seen some cool retro-looking bikes, but I can’t think of any that look like they’re out of WWII lol.

Ivan Budruev says:

Waited for this one. Thank you 🙂

Christiaan Overgaard says:

Methinks I would buy a totalled BMW and swap out the motors and transmission and Bob’s your unkle!

Gillespie236 says:

Had a 2012 spent more time in the garage fixing it than riding it. Had to re-weld most of the welds withing 1 month, hell it was rusted out of the crate. Final straw was the final drive breaking at 13000km. Was fun to ride, but always plan to take an extra hour to get anywhere do the the UDF (ural delay factor)

Nadia More says:

i cant listen to these fucking immigrants anymore

Funny Farm says:

I take it the bike doesn`t come with a reserve ??

NoAdO says:

Да? Да)

Hunt R says:

Damn I can’t believe that price… What about just the motorcycle, is the bike itself worth 12 grand and the sidecar worth 4? Id rather buy a brand new Indian Bobber or something at that price. Damn

Hakan Uzumcu says:

Why does Zack get to have all the fun and Ari get’s relegated to the garage, fixing the things Zack breaks? 😉

Andre Heuser says:

What you got in that jerry can? Obviously not gasoline. Or did you forget you had it?

Artur Inyutin says:

█▬█ █ ▀█▀ 18+ ➨

Yanier Olivera says:

And it had a reverse gear too

Sarah Dell says:

Low gas light never work on these things. Even brand new.

12bucklemyshoe1 says:

I suppose you have to pay extra if you want a center stand??

hiard10 says:

I’ve heard some very bad things about their build quality.
