Motorcycle Front Suspension History
« on: April 02, 2019, 01:37:03 PM »
Found a write up on front suspension while looking for some anti-dive info for another member.

I haven't read the whole item yet and it is over five pages.

In the beginning was the bicycle. And about the same time was the internal combustion engine. And then some guys saw fit to add a small internal combustion engine to the bicycle.

And they saw that it was good.

Then they saw that the only thing better than adding a small internal combustion engine to the bicycle was adding a large internal combustion engine to the bicycle. And they saw that it was indeed better, except that it was bloody uncomfortable and it didnít handle corners and bumps and things very well, and imagine how fast you could go and how much fun it would be if it did. And some of them set to work on designing some machinery to fix this.
