Post here the sort of random, otherwise-useless questions that you would otherwise never get around to asking, except that you noticed and now you wondered. For instance .... • • • It's something I noticed within a video game, but the thing is that I don't ride motorcycles. In fact, I only recently started experimenting within the video game, and I'm down to figuring out whether it's only certain motorcycles or if you're being chased by the police. I don't recall ever seeing this happen with bikes on the street, and have never heard motorcyclists talk about this happening, so I'm pretty sure I know at least part of the answer already: • If you apply the brake on a motorcycle while in a turn and lock the wheels, why does this force the front wheel to straighten out, right the bike, and initiate a forward skid? Shouldn't the bike slide off the curve? I suspect the answer is, "Huh? What do you mean? What the hell are you talking about?" I had actually accepted the behavior within the game, and then yesterday, I kept a bike behaving more like I would expect (but can't know). So now I'm playing around with it, trying to figure out when and why the motorcycles in the game will behave like this.
