Street strider?

First of all I weigh 200 lbs I am not proud of that but it makes me a Clydesdale.I was looking at HR monitors and came upon this product.It is an elliptical machine on wheels .SO it has a rack and an 8spd hub .But, can you tour on it? here is a link so you can see what It is.-- http://www.heartmonitors.com/streetstrider-8r.html

I don't know about touring on it, but it looks hella fun to ride. $1,800 is pretty steep though, think of the regular bike you could buy with that.

From the two local riders I've seen on them, they're pretty awkward to control, especially since you turn by leaning, which means it's got an enormous turning radius. I wouldn't try to tour on one, but they do actually work, since I've seen at least two people out riding them.

If I could afford one I might get it either that or a rowbike but a rowbike has no rack.Both turn by leaning.
