Does anyone own a Ural 2WD motorcycle? Specifically anyone that spends time offroad? The wife and I have been mulling around ideas for something fun for weekend trips and such. We already have a reliable 4WD daily driver that will go pretty much anywhere you point it. I want something on the smaller side. Something simple, street legal (no atvs or utvs) that can handle moderate offroading but still survive half day rides on pavement as needed (like for visiting our kid at college). I've looked at Jeep TJs, VW Bajas and Samurai's. I've looked at motorcycles. The Samurais interest me the most but generally will take more time and money to make reliable than I care to spend. TJs...meh. If I ever buy another Jeep it'll likely be another XJ and it's not what I'm looking for at the moment. Baja Bugs? I just don't know much about the platform other than riding in a few over the years. My wife isn't interested in a motorcycle; either her own or riding two up. Truthfully, I'm not at a point skill wise where I would feel comfortable with her behind me (insert joke here). If I, or another driver, do something stupid and hurt me that's one thing. Her health is a different story. So, the Urals look neat. And older, pre FI models aren't really that expensive. I know a couple of folks that have newer ones and they enjoy them for the short periods of time that they are actually functioning correctly. Apparently when you take a simple design that has worked for decades and try to "upgrade" it there are issues. Shocking, right? A Ural would give us a little storage space for a tent, etc. My wife a semi-comfortable place to ride. Allow us to explore some motorcycle only areas (size wise, not super technical single track). It would let us more easily pass by the parked groups of Jeeps and Toyotas clogging forest service roads in evergrowing numbers stopping ever half mile to get shots for Instagram and to launch their drones. #enoughoverlandalready. Are DIY anti-drone cannons a thing yet or.... sorry, wrong topic. So, anyone have one? Have rented one? Have any other options? Know why more companies don't offer factory sidecar setups? I'm looking to spend less than $10K. So that Roxor Jeep thing is out of the budget. Plus, I'm not an early adopter.
