There are people that get the sidecar, especially Ural, thing and those that don't. I have a bonneville and ride it almost every day. It is a blast to ride. But there is just something about my Ural. It is slow, doesn't handle well, requires constant basic level maintenance, develops weird noises or problems that seem to disappear on their own, but I love everything about it. If it is something that you think you would ride (or drive I suppose is the proper term) then you probably will. If you can test ride one somewhere, go for it. I was on a road trip and knew a dealer was not too far out of the way so I arranged a test ride. I was sold. I spent the next two months tracking down the model I wanted and had it shipped. It was the best decision I made.
