How does motorcycle traction work? Why do wider tires have more tracion? Does the contact patch size on a motorcycle tire matter?
What does suspension tuning have to do with it?
How does tire pressure play in to traction?
No more need for heated debates. Except for in the comment section of this video, you know it’s going to be epic.
