Fiery Ural Sidecar Crash video

Post by bluesman » Fri Feb 26, 2016 11:44 pm

Wait for it, major crash and burn happens at 0:50.

Hard to believe he rides away from this one.

Wonder what caused the gas to pour out like that. Would this happen to any Ural with a properly secured gas cap?

Wow
Miles aka Kilometers

On a hiatus to try out hacking my Harley after owning and loving a 2007 Gear Up, 2014 Patrol, and a 2016 Gear Up. If a Harley/Hannigan rig doesn't make me feel like my Urals did I will be in the market for a black with white pin stripes Retro.

Russian pre-heat for easier starting?
Blue ones burn faster?
Russian burnout?

A testament to insane durability for those that might perhaps temporarily engulf their rigs in flames.
Bet that guy does not have or care if his fuel sensor is working correctly.

Lucky thy guy didn't get fuel on him. He could have been rolling in the snow putting himself out.

If there wasn't snow on the ground that outfit would have been a total loss

Dad used to have an extinguished just like that on the garage wall. I think it was refillable? It had a nasty smelling liquid in it (not vodka).

Carbon tetrachloride. AKA one of the dry cleaning fluids. Very highly toxic to your liver.
