Pillowes Posted November 16, 2021 Report Share Posted November 16, 2021 Hey guys, first post here after being long-time reader. What do you guys think of this post? Specifically, this picture near the end of that first post. Each line from bottom left towards top right represents curves of different radii. X axis is speed and Y is basically how much pressure you're holding on the handlebar to maintain a turn. Negative values on Y axis represent inside handlebar forward, 0 represents no bar pressure ("neutral steering"), and a positive Y value represents forward pressure on the outside bar. In a separate image that's not in the above link, but still originating from Vittore Cossalter's very interesting book "Motorcycle Dynamics", it states handlebar pressures with and without hanging off 0.05 meters. With the hang-off, pretty much all turns apparently start to need "outside bar forward" pressure. Do you guys feel this is accurate in your experience? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
