Crash106 Posted July 16, 2011 Report Share Posted July 16, 2011 So, I'm over at the GL1800Riders forum, and one guy says that traction is the same at all lean angles because at any lean angle, the centrifical force pushing out is balanced by gravity pushing in. Not to say you can't run off the edge of the tire, overwhelm the traction with throttle or brakes, or drag something solid and fall down, but that the traction demands at 20-degrees and 40-degrees of lean are the same. Can this be true? If true, keeping it in mind would be a comforting mindtrick when riding.
