    we are all given sh*t in life, but some of us learn to turn it into fertilizer and grow from it, and some us try to fling it on others like monkeys.

    I'm happy that this is not my backyard.

    To run a solo bike doesn't mean not at all You can run with a sidecar bike.

    Video in post #1: Didn't someone post that here a few months ago?

    Video in post #3: interesting but after the driving lesson its just travelogue

    Pic in post #4: You don't happen to know where & when that was taken, do you?

    Video in post #4: Just proves that there are idiots in every crowd. But I didn't know you could lift the front wheel of a Ural or Dnepr like that...

    No, I don't know it.

    I guess it's somewhere in Russia

    Reasons: The typic russian trucks.
    Left side in the bottom of the pic is an URAL bike (typic tank design) to see.

    All side car boats are yellow, the frames in blue., ..... maybe a postal authority ?

    They are all either Ural or Dnepr but that tank does look like a Ural, although for all we can tell it could be a Ural tank on a Dnepr. One sidecar near the middle looks like it might have a cast wheel so they may have been using whatever parts were available. I tried to find more online but the oldest result Google images found was only a couple of years ago and the poster said he had found it on the internet and wasn't sure when or where. Someone speculated that it was in the former Soviet Union just after the fall and someone said that maybe they were from a police department. I wondered if a police department had recently replaced them with cars?

    Those bikes in the pile are definitely ex police hacks.

    I live on a one-way street that's also a dead end. I'm not sure how I got here, or how I'm going to get out.

    That one I was easy to find. It was taken at Krasnoyarsk in 2013.
