triangle sidecar expert?

Hi all.
I'd like to have a sidecar attached to my motorcycle, and having never ridden a sidecar rig before, I was hoping to find someone local (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill area) who has experience at that sort of thing. If y'all know of anyone you could recommend, I'd be grateful.

You need to talk to RidingDonkeys. He's down near Southern Pines though. He has (at least) two sidecar rigs. He's on here frequently and will probably see this before you have a chance to reply.

What kind of bike do you have? What kind of sidecar do you have in mind?

A nice guy, local to me, has a ural sidecar that he'll sell me at a good price. After talking to him, I have the impression that it is extremely unwise to ride a rig that hasn't been setup by a professional / person with much experience.

Also, that it is, generally speaking, much less expensive to buy a rig that is already setup. I think the logic being that once you pay for the sub frame, mounting hardware and setup, plus the sidecar and motorcycle, you could have found something already put together for less.

I guess what I first want to know is rather or not that's true, and then some ball park price that one would expect to pay to have a sidecar mated to a motorcycle.

At this point I don't have a motorcycle for the sidecar, but I was thinking about a bmw K100, or a early gold wing.
