Could I afford it I'd buy one for winter riding (I have really good motorcycle parking where I work). But that's about the only reason. Rather have a side-car rig, but I can't afford one of those either.Interesting that you put it that way, steingar. I rented one for fun and that describes it perfectly.
I like these,can get them in reg or 2wd(sidecar powered) There are a few running around here and they're reasonably priced and reliable-according to the owners I've talked tne couple tours on theirs.Could I afford it I'd buy one for winter riding (I have really good motorcycle parking where I work).

In Soviet Russia,Urals don't need to see no stinkin' 60 mph....or in death valleyI love me some Ural siderigs but can they top 60mph yet?
Because government. Legally, it's a motorcycle, therefore legally you can (and must) get a motorcycle license to ride one, therefore you can take your test on one. Government does not have to make sense to anyone but itself, and it usually doesn't.I don't see why the DMV lets you take a Motorcycle exam on one. it's not a Motorcycle.
Taking the test on two wheels doesn't mean you can ride a motorcycle either. It just means you can do the bare minimum to pass the test. Give most people a motorcycle and a day of practice and they'd be able to pass it as well. 95% of my learning has come from time spent in the saddle. I learned a bit from MSF courses and track days... But in reality, the more I ride, the more I learn.Motorcycle - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary
We all know how detailed they love to make their rules but ignore the definition in this case.
The problem is they give someone a motorcycle endorsement and they didn't have to prove their competency on a 2 wheeled motorcycle.
All they really had to do is pass the written part to get the endorsement. It makes it a unfair playing field to someone doing the test on 2 wheels. The only thing you have to prove is you can stop and go on a trike
New they run 12 grand, which doesn't fit the Steingar definition of affordable. They're Russian, so I have strong doubts about their reliability. All that, and no way could I fit one in the garages of Steinholme. Think I'll pass on that one, though many thanks for the tip.I like these,can get them in reg or 2wd(sidecar powered) There are a few running around here and they're reasonably priced and reliable-according to the owners I've talked tne couple tours on theirs.
Wait what? Why do you even need to keep up with the supersports on the road? They shouldn't be going that fast on the road. On the track, that's a different story. :scaredpandaIf I were being paid a couple million a year and have the option to buy exotic cars that could keep up with the super sport bikes on the road, I could possibly forgo motorcycles. Or make the NFL buy me a Lamborghini Aventador and jet skis in exchange to not ride bikes.
