The Dog Days of Summer #sidecardog

Our rider inspiration story of the week comes a little early and it isn’t about humans, but our beloved motorcycling pets! If there is anything we can learn from our furry rider friends is that we both LOVE riding in the open air! It’s summertime and dogs love to explore with the wind in their face and Ural is perfect for that! We took a quick spin around Instagram and found these canine companions traveling the world with their humans. Would your pup be a good sidekick? Thanks to URAL, we find quite a few great riding companions.

Imagine how cool your dog will feel when pulling up to the dog park in a Ural.

Do you ride with your dog in the sidecar? Be sure to add the hashtag #sidecardog and #uralmotorcycles so we can follow your travels.

We love when Ural riders share their photos and stories on Instagram. It reminds us of the strong community of riders who enjoy life and share it with their family, friends, and pets. Thanks to all these sidecar folks and their dogs for sharing the adventure with us!

Want to show your dog what a sidecar looks like? 

If you think your dog would enjoy being a sidecar sidekick and you’ve never seen a Ural in person, check out our Dealer Locator to find a dealership near you. Ask them if you and your pup can sit in the sidecar to try it on for size.
