This article covers some of the science behind the forces acting on the Center of Gravity (CG) and the tires and how they apply to the movements of a motorcycle. Knowledge of this particular subject is totally optional for the rider or racer. Riders can be successful in riding and racing without knowing these scientific principles. However, it is good to know these dynamics, if one wants to understand the science of how a bike actually operates or just wants to be able to carry on an intelligent conversation about motorcycle movements. Knowledge and understanding of these forces are useful, when teaching and explaining performance techniques to new riders/racers, some of whom will actually ask intelligent questions. So if you are curious then read on.Learn More
