Robbdoes great tool/info......ESQ Z ME When I had to change my riding stylefrom Normal knee down to Strait Up and down like Agostinni in the 1960s, my tire wear went from normal to having 4mm chicken strip/edge. Even If I wore the rest of the tire down to the cords. Front and rear tires

This wont work, they rely on gravity like a plumb bob. Think about if you had a cup of water on your tank, it would nt spill in a corner, the same reason why we have to lean a bike over in the first place. I'm struggling to put it into words but it wont work....... I do wonder if a phone APP will work on that basis too, I believe they work on an accelerometer to calculate position. I think you need a gyro based sensor like you have on a helicopter (or this: https://www.aimshop.com/products/aim...ope-motorcycle) if you want an accurate reading.

Yeh agreed. Phone measurement would be pretty unreliable.
Just like people who use a phone for lap times. It is okay if it has an external receiver (like QStarz) but not if it is off the phone GPS on its own. In a previous life I raced mountain bikes. Phones were notoriously inaccurate for people that used them. The reason is because the sample rate on the phones is lower because is not meant to be used at those speeds. If the GPS on a phone was always taking that many data points it would be using up processing power that would otherwise be used for phone tasks that people find more valuable.

Took a demo ride on a new Aprillia Tuono yesterday...noticed the dash has a lean angle indicator built in !!! I paid no attention to it while on the track, but there it was !!

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

lol i didnt look at the dash once except when leaving the pit.

your style is akin to doohan of decades ago. riding behind you on track when we were playing, in the corners i noticed your head and shoulders above your bike center line. like on dirtbikes, this pushes your bike under at greater lean angles. faster or not is subjective.. but you'd be safer for sure if you worked on getting those shoulders down and into the corner, which places the bike more upright, giving you more tire to play with.

Ha I never even looked, it was such a busy dash. I was just making sure I didnt mess up the TC settings.

Fun bike though.

Saw one at the Phillip Island expo last year. Lean angle and braking force displays plus hands free phone calls.

Who the hell is looking at their lean angle and braking force in a corner???

Motos are my escape. I will never be on a phone on one. Even hands free they take away your attention.

Still, if I were to purchase a modern bike it is the one I would choose. The problem is here I would lose my license in short order.
