is it because of torque-induced gyroscopic precession?
or is it just plain,old inertia?
You sure you wanna ask this here?
Neither, it's how two wheeled vehicle steering geometry works. Get a toy motorcycle and look at it while it's rolling.
There's no bacon. This poll is invalid.
With that choice of words, shouldn't this poll be in the Dungeon?.....
question posed without necessary evidence of footanchors installed
Tony Foale has your answer
While we are answering the worlds great mysteries, where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?
Come on, you're not voting for president, cast some votes or give your own explanation
It causes the bike to fall into the direction of the turn. When you've reached the desired lean angle, stop steering.
Twist of the wrist will answer this question and get you into :59’s at tally
countersteering is simply the most effective way to rotate a bike on it's longitudinal axis to balance a bike in a turn. it doesnt actually turn the bike in the direction u want and for a second, you actually are moving in the opposite direction.
I'm still pondering these two mysteries of life:
1. "Less Filling" versus "Tastes Great"
2. Pepsi versus Coke
Let me sort those two out, then I'll get to this one, OK?
Countersteering is how you quickly add lean angle; it isn’t how the bike actually turns.
It's way less than a second, though.
The question is: what's the physics behind countersteering? How is it described from a physics standpoint?
Yes it does. How is it explained? Torques, forces, *gyros etc
*not this kind of gyros
A "totw 's got you covered" kind of answer. Always fitting when countersteering is mentioned
Motorcycles turn by harnessing the pure power of awesome directly from the soul of the multiverse. Motorcycles make physics their bitch.
Love the signature, btw
