More or less we all heard about counter steering. You apply steering one side and you moving 2 wheeler leans on the opposite side. this is the effect of counter steering.But what is the working physics? Lets find out in this video.To initiate a turn, the rider and motorcycle must lean in the direction of the turn.
This leaning is caused by turning the handlebars briefly in the opposite direction counter-steering. All single-track vehicles bicycles, scooters, motorcycles make use of counter steering.To negotiate a turn successfully, the combined center of mass of the rider and the single-track vehicle must first be leaned in the direction of the turn, and steering briefly in the opposite direction causes that lean.
The rider’s action of countersteering is sometimes referred to as “giving a steering command”.When countersteering to turn right, the following is performed: A torque on the handlebars to the left is applied.The front wheel will then rotate about the steering axis to the left and the tire will generate forces in the contact patch to the left.The machine as a whole steers to the left.
Because the forces in the contact patch are at ground level, this pulls the wheels “out from under” the bike to the left and causes it to lean to the right.The rider, or in most cases the inherent stability of the bike, provides the steering torque necessary to rotate the front wheel back to the right and in the direction of the desired turn.The bike begins a turn to the right.
