The guy at Gizmodo has a full riding review on this unique machine.
A 2WD side car motorcycle would be a neat thing for where I live.
I don't care if it is slow, it's the where I would go that counts.
These machines have a certain appeal and would be fun for me now days.
"Should You Buy It?
So here’s the thing. Everything I’ve described about how limited and difficult and dangerous these things are actually adds up to what makes them such charming, unforgettable experiences.
Do easy-to-drive, but utterly anodyne modern cars leave you cold? Do you like the sound of riding something made to do battle during WWII? Is the carrying capacity of motorcycles too limited? Do you have a dog? Does the ability to mount a machine gun to the sidecar sound like an intriguing opportunity? Do you like traveling to remote parts of the world where roads don’t go? Do you want to ride in the snow? Then yeah, you’re going to want a Ural. Just be careful!"-Wes Siler
