Help - Looking for Sport bike w/sidecar

Hello all,

Looking for a little help. I'm a film producer looking for a sports bike with a side car for rent in the Miami area (Color black will be the preference). I've written to sidecars manufacturers and one of them suggested I tried a post here. Do you know or happen to know somebody in the Miami area who owns a black sports bike with a sidecar willing to rent it for a shoot day?

Any information you could provide us will be highly appreciated.

Thank you in advance of all you help.

Huzband - No need for smartass replys... Just some can help us with this project. I'm aware that the words sports bike & sidecar sound like a blasphemy, but I've seen them out there.

It wasn't meant as a knock on you. I just know how the inmates roll around here.

Good luck with your search.

May I ask what the film is about? Besides a 150mph hack.

We are looking for something like the picture here. The film is a spoof of the T-Mobile girl. An Ural Spoty wont do the trick.

We are looking for something similar to a HanniganZX. Tried to post a picture, but not sure why it didn't come thru.

blue 2010 Kawasaki Concours w/a Hannigan sidecar in Tallahassee

I have a blue 2010 Kawasaki Concours w/a Hannigan sidecar but I'm in Tallahassee. I recently rode it to Miami and the keys. Not sure about renting it...center hub steering drives much different than a bolt on Ural sidecar....who will be riding it? I'm having trouble posting a pic of my blue bike and sidecar, but it looks the same as the one in my profile picture, only that one is a 2008 in silver.

We may be interested. Any chance you could send me some pics to ganso98@yahoo.com so I can share them with the rest of the production team?
It will need to be ridden on a straight line only, controlled environment, on a parking lot.

Do you know anybody in Miami who owns one?

Let me know... and THANK YOU!
