Motorcycles and Motorcycling in the USSR

By | General Posts

Motorcycles and Motorcycling in the USSR from 1939: A Social and Technical History
Hardcover – April 16, 2019 – available for Pre-Order on Amazon.com

https://www.amazon.com//dp/1787113140/

Motorcycles and Motorcycling in the USSR from 1939 provides the first accessible English language account of motorcycles in the Soviet Union. Concentrating on the wartime and postwar period until 1990, prior to the dissolution of the USSR in 1991, it covers the motorcycles produced, and looks at the way in which they were used at home and exported abroad.

Chapters cover wartime, models produced, the social character of Soviet era motorcycling, and wide-ranging sport. With planned rather than market-led production based around copies of pre-war German BMW and DKW models, the industry churned out hundreds of thousands of utilitarian and rugged machines that were very different from the more fashion-orientated machines produced in the West.

These motorcycles went under the place names of the producing factories: Ishevsk, Kovrov, Moskva, Minsk and, of course, the large flat twins produced in Irbit and Kiev under the Ural and Dnepr names. With a strong emphasis on Soviet era illustrations, the book provides an insight into a life, based on idealism and ideology that has now passed.

Photographs and images, many of them from private family collections, show Soviet bikes as well as popular imports Jawa from Czechoslovakia, and Pannonia from Hungary.

Hardcover: 128 pages
Publisher: Veloce Publishing
Language: English
ISBN-13: 978-1787113145

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Colin Turbett got his first motorcycle at age 15 and has owned, built, and cried over mostly British bikes ever since. He currently looks after a 1949 BSA Gold Star, as well as a modern bike. Colin spent a long career in social work in the West of Scotland through which he was a successful textbook author. In recent years motorcycle trips to Eastern Europe have triggered an interest in the utilitarian machines produced there during the Communist years. He has always been interested in the history of the Soviet Union, and this book brings several of his passions together.

Threesome Report: Make Some Room, Trike Riders Don’t Ride Alone

By | General Posts

TRIKE NEWS Adventures on a Ural, Autocycle madness, 2019 Freewheeler, Deals, Offers, Discounts.

Tracy Getty, a World War 2 historian shares the chair, lighting up sparks of love with a Ural sidecar motorcycle. Tracy and her ride named “Wildcat” bring joy to people who never knew what three-wheels and a smile could do.

We bring you a basic background on the craziness of Autocycles and how it is affecting motorcycle industry, riders, insurance and legislation. While there are companies that want a motorcycle classification to avoid car crash testing expenses, there are others who want true innovation and a new understanding of where Autocycles stand in State and Federal law – and it is all really unsteady despite having more than two-wheels.

Harley-Davidson Freewheeler has a 2019 model that rocks. You can own a Ural or a Slinghsot for incredible deals on 2018 models. If you are an actual Trike lover with custom trike business or a custom trike, you would want to know what the financial and legal implications (pronounced as complications) are going to be.

Motorcycles on Three Wheels

Motorcycles on Three Wheels
The sidecar riding experience and how to do it
by Ujjwal Dey

Motorcycles are fun. And so is travelling long distances or touring on motorcycles. Many touring options are available for big bikes with big budgets. But suppose you are young and wild and free but on a limited budget, what do you do? Ask your friends and they will say a car trip ain’t as much fun as being one with the road on a motorcycle. The environment, the atmosphere, the surroundings, it all hugs you, body and soul, when you tour on a motorcycle. So, here is an option hippies globally celebrate–Sidecars. A third wheel for your motorcycle. No more slippery roads for your two-wheeler. More luggage space. Bring more friends to the road trip party. Bring your dog too.

We recently covered the Ural Motorcycles phenomenon on www.BikernetTrikes.com and if that has inspired you but you are not sure about buying a whole Ural, well just buy a sidecar then. There are many companies including Ural itself, which sells Sidecars as an accessory for your existing motorcycle. So no, you don’t have to switch loyalty or buy a new bike. Just buy the goodies to attach a sidecar to your Harley-Davidson or Triumph or Indian.
