What should you be riding?

Just a little quiz to find out if you have the skill and knowledge you think you possess. Only takes a few minutes. It doesn't tell you what you missed, but it does recommend a bike according to how well you did.

well when using google i can get a perfct score. but mine said a scooter.. fml.... to be honest that is a pretty lame site lol... asking about degrees for turning and ect. like anyone here can tell if they are in a 45 or 57 degree angle when turning. just my opinion.
Asked me how fast to go in a sharp turn lol... my answer shoulda been what ever I feel comfy with lol. but NOOOOO that answer wasnt there.

there are some dumb questions there...

what is the most important thing in a fast corner?
a. centrifugal force
b. gravity
c. momentum.

it's obviously gravity because without that who would need the corner in the road anyway, you could just jump over that field or house.

(Simplest way to look at it/grasp basic concept), play with a bicycle. Spin the front tire while its off the ground,as fast as possible and turn it. (With your hands on the forks) Do it again, with the tire not spinning. spinning tire takes more effort to turn, because of rotational mass, wanting to stay straight.
