I ride a PTW that looks like my avatar.
Ah, a motorised La-Z-Boy Recliner. Like a Cruiser.

Excellent use of Facts and Data.

Not really. Although both 'double link' the Cortanze Elf front end has parallel arms and an upright inside the wheel - more similar to a car with the wheel turned 90º. The Foale (which preceded the Parker Radd/Yamaha GTS) has a upright that takes the upper arm above the wheel. This allows repositioning of the suspension and simplifies the steering linkages.

It's not the same design.

And Foale was putting his front end on bikes long before the Q2. I chose the picture of those as they were very similar in style to the imaginary 'Ostoure'.

So one of these is actually the bike that you ride?

Forgive me but it looks awfully top heavy and unwieldy, you feel this is an improvement?

Well you're a little top heavy and unwieldy. It seems to work for you.

I'm totally sold on the idea of sitting so low that you can't see over the hood of the cage next to you, much less the roof.

Yeah, the white one. (Just like the one in my avatar - there was a clue for the hard of thinking. )

No, actually I don't......to each his own but I wouldn't ride one. I'm trying to be kind here but I think you must be mad to ride something like that in traffic, you're way to low for good visibility and anything larger than a Yaris won't see you, unless you get 100 miles to the gallon or just delight in being eccentric I can't imagine why you wouldn't ride a nice BMW GS 650 or Honda Hornet instead..
