Re: Floppy handling at lowspeed with weight
- The other issue of human versus inanimate cargo is that of centering.
Human cargo sitting on the snapdeck is centered on the bike. Inanimate
cargo, especially on the wide loaders, is cantilevered off of center,
in effect multiplying the effect of the bike through leverage.
Although humans have a higher center of gravity, the fact that their
weight is near center side to side more than compensates for this.
None of which is to negate the other factors you mention--loose hips,
leaning into turns, etc.
