A Review of Motorcycle Steering Behavior and Straight Line Stability Characteristics 780303

The practice and theory of motorcycle steering behaviour are reviewed. The description of the practice relies part on the small amount of scientific experimental work which has been completed and part on the anecdotal. An attempt is made to describe the current state of understanding of the subject particularly from the machine alone point of view, but some discussion of rider abilities and requirements is included. The main references in the field are included, and some indications of how further progress may be made are given.
