Speed Wobble on a motorbike and SHM

Postby Guest » Fri Jan 10, 2020 7:40 am

I'm trying to find an equation which links speed wobble on a motorbike. Speed wobble is when a bike's front wheel is displaced slightly to one side at high speeds causing it to swing back to the other side but this time with greater displacement. This occurs until the bike is out of control. You can find it in loads of videos like with skateboards where the skateboards begin turning left and right out of control. I've only found it to be linked similarly to the hopf bifurcation but this has been very hard to follow.
