While walking around Kenosha near Lake Michigan, we spotted what looks like a ‘10 or ‘11 Ural outside of a local coffee shop. I like the color scheme on this one a lot. I didn’t try to talk to the owner. He seemed occupied in conversation already. It was such a nice day out for riding. I kinda wished I was on one of my motorcycles instead of in the car.
After we left Kenosha and started to head south along the Lake, I started to recognize some of the scenery. I was here several years ago with my friend Sharon. We had tried to visit the Wisconsin Motorcycle Museum, but it was closed.
It was open this time for a few more minutes, so we stopped in to check it out. It really wasn’t what I expected. It was mostly a motorcycle clothing and parts store with some interesting motorcycles on display between the helmets and coats.
They had several bimotas. This was was interesting to look at because of the front swingarm instead of the usual forks.
A closer look at the front suspension setup.
And another bimota with the full fairing on. I’m curious how they handle when riding. Maybe someday I will get the chance to try one.
Have you ridden a bike with unique suspension before?
