Too often we lose sight of life's simple pleasures.
Remember when someone annoys you, that it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown ...
But it only takes 4 muscles to extend your arm and bitch-slap that mother- upside the head...
They had one of those 2wd. chassis at Thumper Racing here in Marshall. It is very cool looking. That company builds some nice stuff. It seems cool, but it surely adds considerable weight. It also torque steers a bit to the right. I bet the gyroscopic effect when jumping would take some getting used to. It has a lever on the bars to disengaged though. I would love to ride one.
So when you're leaned over in a corner and you apply the front brake the bike will try to stand up or run wide.
With a 2WD single track vehicle when you apply the throttle when leaned over the bike will lean over further. You have to adjust the way your steer even when on constant throttle and it's not a pleasant sensation.
The best choice seems to be the Yamaha 2-Trac that has a fluid drive to the front wheel and limits the amount of power it delivers. It's best in deep sand or bog.
Whatever happend to the Yamaha MX bike prototype that was tested a year or so ago? Hydraulic front wheel drive, in testing it was breaking lap records. There was some hoopla about rules, and the project just seemed to disappear. From the original article I read it appeared Yamaha was almost ready to go into production with the bike.
