Video: Riding Russia on a Ural, plus Born Free 6


Here are a couple YouTube videos that grabbed our attention this morning.

The first is a couple of righteous bros who filmed themselves touring Russia on Ural sidecar rig (which apparently had an issue with starting reliably, judging from the push-start footage). It’s fun, and looks like the sort of trip that should be filmed for TV – much more exciting than a couple of big-money Hollywood guys who buy the latest Beemers and still need a support truck to help them get around the world.

The other is a walkaround at Born Free 6, which is probably the biggest grass-roots chopper/custom show in California right now. By the looks of the video, while the chopper craze might have died off on television, it’s still alive and well in the back streets.
