The contemplative life and Motorcycle travel.
I would happily take one, too but only if it came along with a mechanic.
Yes, don't think I'd want to take a trip on it, but going to the grocery store in January would be fun.
You may need more than 2WD to get out of deep snow like that. And they're incredibly reliable on a trip ... though you just need to carefully define "trip".
Merry Christmas to you Dan and all the best in 2017.I'm with Sonja, I'd take Ural if it came with a mechanic and and unlimited free parts too.
It's been suggested a few times that I abandon my Vespa scooter for a URAL to make my winter riding a bit safer and more manageable. But as Sonja points out I too might insist on a mechanic. Not sure I'm ready to take on those responsibilities myself. Yet.Best wishes for a fine, happy and Merry Christmas!Steve WilliamsScooter in the Sticks
