Ok thanks for soothing my concerns. I finally got Triumph experts
opinion. They say Triumph OIF was a special job by aerospace engineers
so its apples and oranges to compare OIFrames to oil tank frames and its
a myth about any OIF handling issues by oiling mass effects.
Peel has this tri-rod link arrangement that has removed her handling
out of the ordinary zone of two tire planted leaned counter steering.
When leaving that ho hum turning style, CoG pivoting-skewing rate and
inertia with fluid slosh comes to dominate the physics then going
even faster - farther leaned, dang aerodynamics begins to
equal the inertia physics with lift and drops by eddies at random.
If not leaning too far over, a knee out helps to spoil the lift
and add drag to help turn in/lean, when not much traction left to
assist as expected. Never noticed any of this scraping Ninja fairing
no room for knee out, or on my SV650 finding its corner limits
and peg/toe fouling limits to scare me off any more their foolishness.
When I begin to see these issues discussed in modern elites then I'd perk
up to include them as worthy corner competition, but so far they
are no longer on Peel's target list any more. Just their dead ahead
sprints to worry about and even then road bikes are wheelie prone.
Only aerodynamics they test for in elites is stability to draft
close and bee line air resistance, all good - just not for cornering.
Ya'all don't know what ya missing out on.
One event to give idea, had test comparison ride discussion with buff vacationing racer on paired down R1 with no chicken stripes and ground
down knee pucks, traveling with surfer built girl friend in sprayed on
Yamaha factory leathers
on her paired down R6 with same lack of unused tire and knee puck surfaces.
One request was speedometer comparison near Peel's top out
in the safer opens. Not only did I have to wait up for them
entering the few straights, after a few curves left em way behind I had to
wait up for them near end of straights or pull over at wide
spot to get a report as they either would not or could not
keep up with Peel's pull over 130 mph indicated.
Fella got rather pissed at me on Peel just before we split up as the
hot riding made his gal do a leathery butt wiggle pole dances in my
face to signal her excitement level.
Got me high and tires hot so I could let Peel's hair out on
solo ride back home to get my adrenalin fix before shut off.
i still had to slip slide in/out creek bed to get me topped off as
pavement work no matter how harsh just ain't much trouble to Peel.
I never ever press a rider ahead of me to make any mistakes
I've influenced, besides as long as a few turns ahead can always just
leave em behind any time its safe to pass.
