In the area of maintaining conventional motorcycle stability, engineers have established a series of tests that measure the wobble, weave, and kickback of every new model before it is released for production. While physical testing provides a nearly perfect measurement of a prototype or production motorcycle, the number of design alternatives that can be considered is limited due to their high expense and time-consumption.
