    Tilting Motor Works

    Today I was visiting Des Moines motorcycle shops to give them posters and info on the Free Gears rider training during the rally.

    At the Harley shop I saw a tilting three wheeler conversion I have not seen before.

    They told me the kit plus install was around $17,000.

    They'll hold up more traffic if there's a group of them.
    Working your way up through a group of three wheelers is never easy.

    NO, it's a cultural thing, not a mechanical thing.
