Motorcycle Dynamics Seminar, Ohio

Recommended Posts

On the Monday and Tuesday straight after the AHRMA races at mid Ohio, I'll be giving one of my 2 day seminars on motorcycle dynamics and related stuff. Note that the 24th is the deadline for getting the cheap hotel rate if you want to stay there.

Contact us on info@tonyfoale.com if you have any questions.


Tony Foale.


Details follow.


It will be held on the 31st July and 1st August, 9am to 5 or 6 pm each day. This is the Monday and Tuesday straight after the AHRMA races at Mid Ohio and before the AMA event on the following weekend.


This seminar will have the added interest of having Robby Kasten's motorcycle on display. For those who don't know, Robby has developed a system of reverse rotating brake rotors for the front wheel, principally to reduce the gyroscopic reactions to improve lean-in performance. Check it out at www.reverserotatingrotors.com . After I have finished the seminar topic on steering Robby will give a short talk about his experiences with the machine and answer questions about it.


There are two attendance packages on offer.


1. Basic seminar: This covers the seminar attendance plus a CD with

all the seminar material, a 46 page guide to suspension kinematics and some freeware software for

calculating various motorcycle parameters. US$250.


2. Special seminar package. This is the basic seminar as above but

with the addition of the book “Motorcycle Handling and Chassis

Design” and version 4.2 of the software for the analysis of the

characteristics of practically all rear suspension systems. The

normal cost of the book and software shipped to the USA is 162

euros (about US$208). Package price US$390.


Morning and afternoon coffees are included but not lunch. The hotel has restaurants on site.


I would ask that you register and pay ASAP so that I can ensure that we have an appropriately sized room reserved for us. Also so that I know how many books to bring. I will not be bringing any spare copies to keep my luggage at a minimum.

The easiest way for payment is through our PayPal account which can be accessed at http://www.tonyfoale.com/miscorderUSD.htm

In the event of someone not being unable to attend the seminar, a full refund will be made less any PayPal commission charges.

If you do not wish to use PayPal please email to sort out an alternative method.


Please let us know ASAP if you intend to attend and do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
