THE URAL SIDECAR
MYTHICAL MACHINE, CAPRICIOUS, BESTIAL, THAT WILL TAKE YOU TO THE END OF THE WORLD....PROVIDED THAT YOU WON'T BE AFRAID TO PUT YOUR HANDS DIRTY.
THEY PRETEND TO PAY US, WE PRETEND TO WORK.
This famous motto of the Russian workers dating from Soviet times, alone sums up the finish quality that you might expect from a Ural sidecar
Originally built for military purposes, Ural motorbikes are considered copies of BMW R71
Their design dates back for more than 70 years, they are noisy, they heat, they brake badly and finally, they easily go awry. And that is why we love them because they have the qualities of their defects. With their outdated look and the delicious poom-poom escaping from the pot, it's like stepping back in time. The driving rules are those who were in effect 60 years ago and the speed is definitely prohibited. Originally, these vehicles were working tools, road tractors used to transport people and goods in the most remote places and always at a slow pace.
The other great advantage of the side car is that you can squeeze in some camping equipment, bottles of beer to keep yourself company during the bivouacs and sometimes, an agreeable company without which the journey may seem a bit sad.
These machines are capricious and require an attention of every day. By necessity, this skill is acquired very quickly.
If you are careful, keep a close eye on the "beast" and give it a thousand little daily care, the Ural will take you to the end of the world, in all weathers and on all terrains. And it is precisely in Mongolia that this program is waiting for you
