As avid sidecar riders, we’re often asked what it’s like or how different it is from riding a motorcycle. Quick answer: it’s fun…and different! For a more in-depth answer, we made this video explaining why we think riding a sidecar motorcycle might be easier than you think. Enjoy this video, get out and practice, then plan an adventure near or far!
Over 6,000 people attended Festival of Machines at Conner Prairie, a weekend that celebrates unique modes of transportation with a focus on history and innovation. We were thankful to have been a part of the third annual event with a sidecar display featuring our Ural Motorcycles. Check out the scene in this photo-story!
Every year, motorcyclists from all over the USA and beyond make the pilgrimage to AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. We are longtime attendees to the large venue and have walked and golf-carted the entire place while shooting photos for the AMA. This time, our Ural Motorcycles “cT” was our transportation of choice to help us cover a lot of ground and carry our photo equipment.
People know we have a soft spot for sidecars. What they may not know is what these Ural sidecar motorcycles look like when they hit U.S. soil and what happens after they emerge from their Russian pine crates. For our new addition to Good Spark Garage, we visited Heindl Engineering to catch the assembly all on video!
