haven't seen any links to commercial sites from this guy, unlike some other posters that tease you with a cool video of their latest ride just to get you to click over to their site and buy a tour.
True that I didn't see any links trying to actually sell anything. I figure that is because there isn't a viable product, in production, with a distribution network in place, and ready for sale yet. My best guess is that he is still working on that. I could be wrong.

The other thing I didn't see was any real interest in touring on his part other than that he figured that it just might be a target audience for the product, which to me doesn't really look like a good fit for touring. Others may certainly feel free to disagree on the suitability for touring and discuss it.

Given all of that and that I really didn't seem much touring application for the product or one like it I wasn't much inclined to be interested. Note that I did not go so far as to suggest that it was content that should be banned. I think it in might be gray area, but so far has not crossed that line into blatant promotion of a commercial product.

I am interested, in some of the tilting European cargo bikes that you can get, could see a decent use for myself and my dog, but even a normal 2 wheel cargo bike would be better as not as wide. I would also like an electric bike for touring now, as I have severe osteoarthritis, and finding it increasingly difficult to ride a lot of the hills with my current set up with a dog trailer. Their are new things in the wings, with a new battery A Lithium-Sulfur battery being developed between US and Australian researchers, has 20 times the range of a Li-iron-pho battery and charges in less then half the time, so maybe a couple more years and we will see those new batteries on the market, then I will jump on an electric bike for touring.

Update the bike show model

There is some great work going on right now with electric downhill trikes and quads for disabled athletes. You could compare. Look at Martyn Ashtonís Instagram, for instance.

Connection to touring in the sense of cross country bike camping like this forum is indeed tenuous, but touring as a marketing term is thrown around pretty loosely. Maybe thatís how he found his way here

There are a lot of people in my community that commute by bike, shop by bike, etc. You see some interesting two wheel cargo bikes that are used for lots of different things.

I know one guy that bought a Catrike this year, he has had some balance problems and at 85 years old, after crashing a couple times last year he decided he wants more stability so he bought the trike. But a Catrike does not tilt. A tilting trike would still require that you have good balance.

I just do not see the advantage to a tilting trike. But if some people like it, more power to them.

I mostly think of a trike as tripling the probability that you will hit a pothole or a patch of bad pavement compared to a bike.
