I loved my 1994 Ural 650 tourist combination. I owned it for about 5 years while I lived in New Mexico. I could get several weeks groceries aboard on my foraging rides to town. When I moved to the mountains in Jasper Ga. I found it unsatisfactory on the roller coaster roads. Logging trucks comming at you hogging the road-yikes, hard to modify ones line when commited. Ride to slow,someone may run over you. Ural is a tough purpose built sidecar tug, & extremely good at what it does. I really miss mine, but may get another someday. See PIX
