My friend told me about how his son needed a new desk to do school work. I just happened to have an extra one. The problem was how to get it across the city without renting a truck as it wouldn’t fit in his car. The Ural to the rescue.
It just happened to fit perfectly in the sidecar with the edge hanging just past the wheel. Four straps later and it locked in place not even wiggling. I positioned it so the wind wouldn’t be pushing on it while I was riding or so I thought.
The morning came to bring it over, and it was –16F. There ended up being an interesting cross-wind the entire ride over. I was worried about the wind from the front, and didn’t think about side winds. I made it the 30 mile ride without incident. It was an interesting ride. A few other road users though so too, and snapped photos.
My friend’s son likes the new desk, and it is working out great for them. This is one of the weirder things I’ve hauled on the Ural displacing the several loads of compost and a tree.
What’s the weirdest thing you’ve hauled on your motorcycle or sidecar?
