Jorma on the Ural sidehack at Ocean Beach

Jorma on the Ural sidehack at Ocean Beach

So yesterday morning while walking on Ocean Beach I saw this Ural rig and the owner kindly let me sit on it and have my picture taken… I may have to get one of these.

Anyway, my pal Marc Shechter’s law firm, Butterfield and Schechter just celebrated their fifteenth anniversary and Marc asked me to pick a few tunes ate the fete which I was more than happy to do.

Here is a list of those tunes, not necessarily in that order and not necessarily complete:

    and last but not least:
    around 23 years ago, Jorma told me a story about his friend’s todler little girl who couldn’t pronounce “Jorma”.

    So, she called Jorma: “Jormu”. :

    One website recommends sidecar ballast for newbies learning to ride the Ural. You’re no newbie, but you are right at the beach, so get a sandbag!

    Anyone interesting in piloting a sidecar hack ought to become familiar with an exquisite little physical phenomenon called “steering reversion.” It happens when the sidecar is flown way up high (as in a sharp right-hand turn) and the rig goes from steering to countersteering in a nanosecond. It can be quite “entertaining” if the pilot is not expecting it.
    And yes, there should always be ballast in the hack, whether it be a person, dog, or other significant weight. M R Fun!
