Watch these Ural motorcycle riders cross a raging river
Ural Motorcycles are well known as being hearty machines that are able to go anywhere a rider desires. Apparently, that even includes through a rushing river. Water and cycles seldom mix, unless a bike happens to be capable of surfing, but these guys clearly have a knack for white-water rafting on three wheels.
We’re guessing that the guy with the stick might be there to help figure out the river’s depth, but this still looks like cutting things mighty close. At times, the motorcycles are completely submerged in the rapids and look ready to turn over, but somehow the riders just keep the throttle pinned all the way back to dry land. At least with the Ural’s sidecar, someone could take a buddy home if his bike gets sent downstream.
