Or is it Ohrooga/Oroohga? Actually the cheap-Chinese version that they couldn't even get the phonetics right. It's says "Ooooga Horn" on its label.

Funnel is plastic but yeah, it is loud. You'll need to by a horn switch obviously.

Bolt it anywhere on your Ural to dazzle the kids and harass your neighbors, Ha.

Price: Free+ whatever the shipping cost is to you from 10804

Harbor Freight called the one they sold me "Ooga" horn, although I prefer "Ahoogah". I love mine, except that it seems to make the local geese want to mate with my bike. Image

No more geese problems for you if you ever had them :)


codemonkey, you're not really an Uber driver with your hack, right?

I'll skip the socialist diatribe about a business model that shifts the cost of ownership of capital to the workers and just say "Uber won't allow it".

I saw a guy up in Missasauga, Ontario with an identical green Patrol and an Uber sign and thought it was funny as hell; I assumed it was something like LDS temple garments where you had to be on a registry to buy them. $12 on AliExpress proved that assumption wrong. I love cruising bars on Saturday nights and arguing with the drunks who claim I'm their driver over helmet rental.

A high school classmate of mine was moonlighting as an Uber driver. As she explained it, living near a college town (as she did) was a virtual license to print money, particularly on weekends. I learned that Uber drivers have more autonomy than I had anticipated, particularly as it concerns refusing fares (although this cannot become a habit). There's also the $150.00 allowance that is provided for cleaning expenses when, for example, an inebriated fare makes a mess in the back seat.

A four door vehicle is compulsory, as is an automatic transmission. So, those in the know would know that an Uber fixture on a Ural sidecar is just humor with a wink and a nod. :wink:

Years ago I had an idea to paint Ural in yellow and get an official Yellow Cab sticker on the right side of Ural sidecar 8)

Here are a few funny ones: https://www.flickr.com/photos/a1930ford/7605178526

Somewhat related to the Uber mentality...
New Years Eve my daughter is home from college for the month. We have a big family and friends party that she and her friends are attending too. At least till around 10-10:30pm when they decide to go to a club in NYC (about 20 miles away). "Why would you go into NY on New Years Eve" says I but not out loud. Ever the parent worrier I tell her "if anything major or dramatic happens and the trains aren't running always remember to walk/make your way home anyway you can".
Yeah that's our disaster plan for someone who was in NY on 9/11. But for some reason she didn't get what I meant, but I don't want to be an alarmist...

"Don't worry Dad, if the trains and bus's aren't working then we'll just take an Uber". I explain that maybe all cars including Uber's won't be working.
She and all her friends are basically giggling & laughing now as if that could ever happen.
"Dad, if Uber is not working then we'll just call a Lyft"
God help them :)
