Gun Blogger Spots Russian Ural Motorcyle with Machine Gun Mount

A writer of the Arms Vault Blog happened to stumble upon this beautiful Russian Ural Gear-Up Motorcycle during a trip to the post office.

This is the newer model of the type of motorcycles that you expect to see in a an old WWII movie – a sturdy, reliable frame with an old-fashioned design and a sidecar. Back in the day, you could have a guy riding shotgun, whose job was to shoot ze Germans. This orange and black bike has continued the tradition with its machine gun mount, which is visible on the sidecar in the upper-right picture.
