Russia's Ural Motorcycles is selling its two-wheeler product with funky sidecars to Australia. Is the 'George and Mildred sidecar' due a revival and maybe a reinvention? I dunno and it's a slightly disturbing thought in some ways. I came across Ural Motorcyles in Australia via something in the Sydney Morning Herald and I must say I find this all rather amazing - there are even sidecar adventure tours Down Under. I guess it's a relatively fuel-efficient transportation mode and Two Fat Ladies on their venerable Triumph with sidecar certainly rocked. One of those weirdly cool cult things due a mini revival? Fido's chariot?
