This is all she needs for a month long trip! (below) The bag and shoes fit in the trunk easily and the suitcase went into the nose of the sidecar. She still had room to sit pretty comfortably with her legs stretched out over the top of the case, but still inside the car (seen above). The luggage rack was empty too. We could have brought more!
The ride to the airport was a bit windy, and full of the usual gawkers on the highway.
The departure lane was very busy compared to last time we were here. This was the only section that wasn’t three cars deep.
The Ural’s tight turning radius and narrow profile made it easy to maneuver around the cars to the curb.
We pulled out her luggage, and stashed her gear back into the sidecar. I didn’t see anyone taking photos of us like last time, but we still got the usual looks. Surprisingly, no one stopped to talk about the Ural for a change (nice!).
We said our goodbyes, and I took advantage of the Ural’s quick turning to escape the blockade of cars.
I scrubbed the Ural some, so it was sorta clean and shiny again before we left. It still had a ton of winter grime on it. It still needs some more scrubbing and some rusty fasteners replaced. Summer tires and and oil change wouldn’t hurt either. :)
