What model is that? Haven't seen whitewalls in a long time.
Durned if I know. I just thought y'all'd like the picture.

You can buy Urals new with all sorts of fun stuff. BTW, with a sidecar, it's a whole different thing. Takes much more skill for basic maneuvering. Seems like it should be easier but not. The cool thing about the Urals is they are basically military - but based on BMW R71...

If you are going to go that big, get yourself a Harley Davidson. My mid-life crisis resulted in my going out and buying a Harley. It was indeed a whole lot of fun and I really enjoyed the biking culture, but alas, age and an arthritic back caught up with me and rides of any real duration went from being calming and enjoyable to being more than just a little uncomfortable! The bike sat largely unused in the garage for a couple of years, until our grandsons began showing interest in it. Not wanting them to get involved with motorcycles I came to my senses and sold the Beast in 2013. Good memories though! ;)

A motorcycle would be great for getting around in Austin, but the level of pollution they generate would freak me out.
Hence the electric Harley.
