    I donít think size will make a difference. Larger may be more stable but the key will be how well itís been setup. You might also consider something that you have some familiarity with regarding a bike that you already know how to service.

    I was thinking of putting a car on the K1100RS when a period correct Velorex for the R90/6 was purchased.
    Will be looking around this part of the forum for info.

    A Little late but my advice is to find the best deal you can on an already set up rig, or Ural. Jump in with both feet and learn the quirks of the sidecar life. If you love it, move up to bigger and better. If you hate it, you can sell and easily recoup your money. If you're like me and get bit hard by the bug, you might bankrupt your self with a fleet of them no time.
