SVETYANIA IS WHAT I CALL MY BIKE! She is a 2005 Russian-made URAL gear-up that has reverse, as
well as shovel, and spare tire! The top speed is about 60 mph,
the engine is 749 cc with 4 forward gears and one reverse, plus
an electronic and kick start just in case! How is that for practical?
My husband David bought her, and I loved riding her, so now
she is 1/2 mine. We joke about which half, the sidecar? (The
bike is dual rear wheel drive on demand).
Cabbie our miniature Schnauzer likes to go for rides in the
sidecar. I put-put around the yard, in first gear and she seems
to enjoy it. We have taken her on short drives around the neighbor
hood and she is quite an attraction. I have had a motorcycle
license since 1974 and still own my 1974 Kawasaki 175 dirt/street
bike. (I even have the original manual!)
Most important, my helmet, jacket (with body armor), boots and
gloves are always on. So, if you see this camouflage sidecar
bike around Texas or your state, it just might be me! Keep the
wheels on the ground.
