A nice Ural sidecar rig “out in the wild”.. Thanks to James Meyer. Seen on the streets of Santa Monica. I wonder how reliable these are for long distance travel. Rate this:Share:FacebookTwitterEmailRedditPinterestMorePrintLike this:Like Loading... Related

Not bad if you define distant as twice around the block. Haha! Not true I’m sure they’re as perfectly reliable as any 1940’s BMW would be if built by Vodka drinking Russians out of recycled Coke cans.
Newer ones have good electrics and old styling. They don’t have much power though.
Ural reliability(as with Royal Enfield) certainly has improved in recent years. Contrary to what some prefer to believe,many early Urals were also mechanically reliable,however, problems then were the norm,not the exception as nowadays. The other factor often overlooked is owner operation, in regards to the machines capability (and intended purpose). These machines have survived very well in their original environment, where there are few paved roads and infrequent maintenance; when ridden within their envelope of performance.
