Recent comparisions w/ other narrow-track or tandem designs, the Land Glider has advantages that make it a superior platform. The more upright & taller seating gives it better ergonomics for easier entry/egress, longer down-the-road visibility, & closely matches conventional vehicles sight elevations. It could match bumper reqs. hts./crash cage protection w/ most of other vehicles. If the power-assisted leaning tech is sophisticated enough to not only optimally control the center of gravity at all situations, it could also counter crosswinds & affects of large vehicle (tractor-trailer) wakes. Improved driving dynamics, safety & control gives a greater sense of confidence. The introduction of the new class of 'narrower' green vehicles could easily be marketed & accepted by the driving (even 'driver enthusiasts') public with these adopted advantages.
