Anyone tried one??

I've been looking at this contraption for some time: http://www.tiltingmotorworks.com/ , I have a "damaged" right arm and have been selling some of my bikes I could not ride anymore abd bought a Can Am and a Ural. I am ok on light bikes (XT2225/250, XS650) almost ok on my G/S but definitevly not OK on my old 94 Vmax .... I have too much history with the Vmax and cannot sell it so this could be an interesting solution?!
I'd like the input of someone who actually RODE one the usual naysayers can save their .02 cents!
thanks!

Can Am tilt mechanism patent pending

Are you aware that Can Am is developing a tilt model Spyder? More here: http://www.motorcycle.com/news/brp-d...der-90418.html

I'd wait for that. Would love to try one... haven't had an opportunity to ride a standard Spyder yet either (I'm jealous ).

I think it would certainly be worth a trip up the coast to check it out in person. Find out for sure if it will suit your needs.

I have seen this, the founder of the compnay has brougt it by our location to talk with us about working with him. The owner had us watch him ride it, it all worked very well. The workmanship seems to be top notch. It is a very small comapany.
