Happy Father’s Motorcycling Day 2018

Happy Father’s Day from URAL and Total Motorcycle!

Get inspired. Go Riding!

When Father’s Day comes around, we’re often contacted or sent photos by sidecar families from around the globe sharing their stories of togetherness. We love it. And we love that Ural motorcycles play a big role in combining quality family time with motorcycling. Here are photos that have come across our desk and continue to make us smile.



“The Ural Sidecar is an amazing way to share motorcycling with my disabled son.”

Mike Escamilla is a BMX pro, stuntman, and perhaps most importantly, a sidecar pilot for his daughter Luna.



Mihai Barbu is an incredible photographer and seasoned world traveler. He and his wife and son spent months traveling the world on their Ural Gear Up. Here they are at the highest point of their 17,000 mile journey, Tajikistan. Mihai said his son enjoyed the trip,

“I can guarantee you there isn’t a child in the world that wouldn’t enjoy riding in a sidecar motorcycle!”



Donni Reddington and her father Don spent 10 days traveling around Washington state via motorcycle sidecar to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s. They’re also pictured at the top of the article.


Jamie Robinson explored Southern California on our 2WD Gear Up with his family. He actually flew his dad in from England for a visit and weekend of camping and fishing.


“We wanted to find a place off the beaten path where we could explore nature; the Ural helped get us right down into the heart of it all.”

Corey Wilkinson took his sons on a camping trip with his Ural cT, which made his father-son experience even more memorable.


Here’s Dave and Jon Heindl, the father-and-son team behind Heindl Engineering. Jon is president of the company while his dad, Dave, is the vice-president and sales manager of this Ohio-based Ural Dealership.


Dustin Coldicott an avid sidecar rider with his family, knows that rides in the Ural will bring smiles to his kids’ faces. Surely these little ones will have many stories to tell about riding with dad.


Special thanks to URAL for the Father’s Day Stories.
