Motorcycle Design

the appearance, function and engineering of motorcycles

I’ve been reading a bit too much Carroll Smith and Tony Foale recently.  And have focused most of my early attention on learning more about the current crop of motorcycle tires.  There are only two small patches of rubber connecting a race bike to the pavement.

I found a nice PDF on the Bridgestone site that explains the basics of motorcycle tires.
