Motorcycle collisions by their very nature are difficult at best to analyze and/or reconstruct. Motorcycles come in as many different types, models and styles as do passenger vehicles and trucks. The inherent problems of load changes and articulation are enough to discourage anyone from reconstructing these type of collisions.
This document is a result of efforts by members of the Washington State Patrol Traffic Investigation Division and members of the Washington State Patrol Academy. The purpose of the tests was to use the G-Analyst to determine the most appropriate value for both rear and front brake resistance during brake application and to make some comparisons of acceleration rates and deceleration rates.
