About the only "Bike" I'd get on would be the 3 wheeler From Harley, but aside from that and the Can Am which is also expensive enough to pay down a home, is the Honda 3 wheeler,... Then there is always My "Bike"...ImageUploadedByFirearms Talk1405904404.328050.jpg

I don't know how reliable the Urals are but I like the idea of having 2WD with a sidecar because it seems that it would have a more linear torque thrust so you wouldn't have to constantly correct for the offset drive wheel. Or maybe not. They seem pretty cool though. I would have to try one tout first in any event.
The ones I saw when they first came on the scene were to laugh at. The workmanship was crude to the point of just shaking your head and the electrical wiring looked like it was done by the janitorial force after a long weekend. A side-car rig is an odd ass’y, for sure. It’s takes a special person to drive one…or to ride in the side car.

The three wheeled “motorcycle" has been in vogue for several years and I think Honda and HD are now building them from the factory. I’ve never ridden a three wheeler. I can’t remember the term they are called…They come with two wheels in front and a driving wheel in back…or one wheel in front and two in the back in the old HD servi-car style. To me it seems the ones with one front wheel would understeer in sharp corners and the ones with two wheels in front would oversteer. I don’t like either option. But, like I said,I haven’t ridden one.

Good for you considering getting in the wind!

Thats why you go fast enough to do it right and get the job done the first time around .

I have a customer with a URAL , very odd 2wd bike .
As for the fashion phase , look at all the 50-60k big dogs , red necks and other high end wild choppers out there going for 10k and low miles . They look bad ass but I hear they are horrible to drive . I dont want one , I know I would treat it like it deserves to be treated and just beat the snot out of it . The one thing I dont like about HD is the drive belts , lucky mine is chain so it will hold up to abuse .
If I build something , its to play on , not put around and show it off .
Think I am on my 4th set of axle adjusters from burn outs and dumping the clutch . If I could get them to hold and keep the front down I feel I could make some magic happen
I have not laid it down yet ass in over 15mph , I have dumped it a few times , once from that wreck and a few times taking off and getting away from me .

I had the CB500 and that virago at the same time , the CB was a basket case and listed it for free if they bought the yamaha which was drivable . NO ONE wanted the yamaha , everyone went crazy for the CB , still have not understood why


IIRC the urals can be either 1wd or 2wd , I think you can disengage it on the fly and yes , they are ugly but we got a bad ass right here , this dude is drifting on one , hats off to him .


Now just combine that with the other 2wd dirt bike and have a 3wd bike

Bob Dylan is my gavorite musician EVER. And to be honest, this is one of his worst songs. LOL

You know, everyone warned me that it was going to be really cold here in the winter. Why didn't anyone say anything about the humidity?!!!

I've got a preacher buddy that is about my age (over 60), and still rides. I expect one of these summers he's going to visit me from Washington state on his bike, YES it's a HARLEY!!

And, I'd bet that isn't that much colder than Rock Springs.

Since it seems to be a day for revelations... Has anyone mentioned the mosquitoes? A swarm can carry off a small kid... Not just a baby, a baby goat!
