Rugged, pratical, sturdy and reliable? 8) Or cheap, shoddy and un-exportable? 8O
If we had a constitution, this is the point where the 'fifth', or it's equivalent, would be invoked. :p

There is a chap just around the corner from me who has a side car combination. I took it for a spin around the patch the other day, very interesting.

He got it in China. They make them using the factory the Soviets gave them in the 50's which they nicked from BMW in 1945.

The French would probably wave some white bunting at you and go into collaboration mode. If you want too prove how hard you are it would have to be an sidecar combo with SS Handschar Division marking riding around Belgrade.

You can buy them and the places back date them to WW2 spec come in two colours Afrika Korps yellow (Dunkel Gelb) and panzer grey

Look up F2 motorcycles near Banbury. They have had both Ural and the Chinese machines in stock. Not sure what they stock at the moment because it has been a while since I was up there.
