I don't believe 15mph is some magical number for all single-track vehicles. I have to imagine it depends on weight and tire width/contract pathc.

I have a sensor in the seat of my pants that detects that transition point and automatically transmits a signal to my brain which in turn moves my hands and bars to the correct position

actually the wheelbase of the vehicle plays a good portion of it too
