Hell yeah, I invited them!

I think MO should have webchats and stuff like that with industry people. Why not take advantage of the medium?

I finally got a response to my email to LitMotors about if their vehicle leans. It does. However, instead of the rider alone determining the lean angle, it appears the vehicle's electronics and gyros will actively control it based on variables like the angle of the curve and speed.

Oh Hell No...just imagine the fun kids when your whizz-bang gyro decides to increase your lean angle the same time you're traversing a patch of gravel or even more fun when a truck is going the opposite way and hogging the centerline....

They have a cool video animation of their vehicle getting t-boned by a car. They say the gyros will keep it upright as it skids away from the impact.

Of course, it is just a video animation....but who knows? Maybe it will work as advertised.
