There are many warnings online about riding a Ural without the sidecar, especially one with a leading-link front fork. You can imagine my surprise when the bike did not spontaneously combust and I walked away from the ordeal unscathed. =) I’m being a little bit facetious here…
This is my review and thoughts about riding the Ural Patrol without the hack.
BTW all the handling characteristics with the sidecar removed should be the same with the Ural Gear-Up.
Try it out! It’s not as scary as people make it out to be on forums.
If weather permits I’ll try her out on the freeway tomorrow. I’ll record it and upload it as well.
