Could this be the next evolution?

(Phillip and his tilting vehicle… a vehicle that… tilts)

Go to to see some video footage of the bastard child of a motorcycle and a car. (Sure, the car said he loved her… but left the motorcycle to care for her three-wheeled freak of nature by herself.)

Here’s how Phil describes it:
a narrow, high agility tilting vehicle similar to a motorcyle that tilts into curves, but is AS SIMPLE TO STEER AS A CAR!. There is no other system that can do what this vehicle does. It is less than 1 meter wide for manouverability and energy efficient propulsion and parking, and yet has superior stability . AND it is as simple to steer as a car!. The control is failsafe.

More on leaning cars here.

    Reminds me of something I see a guy riding around town were I life. His vehicle is an overside go cart though. IT looks like it is inspired by a Harley.

    MOther Earth News mag built a three-wheeled leaner back in the 80s, (I think). They never produced plans but I read & re-read that one article many times trying to figure out how to do it myself. As I recall, it used a very basic computer to control the amount of lean based upon steering angle and wheel speed.

    It also used a CVT from a snowmachine or industrial equipment, which I was opposed to then but now after living with a CVT scoot every day, seems to make perfect sense.

    Maybe its time to re-look at that idea!

    I swear, everything is on Google! I found the first part of the reprint of the original article! I wonder, (and will check) if that tech package is still available.
