How is that relevant here?
The title is interesting.The subject is disappointing. I was hoping for something on extreme cornering.
Everything is relevant in a thread about thread drift.
Well, it’s time to drag special relativity into this. Think about possible futures for a moment. If you are standing still, your possible futures are all around you, 360 degrees. Take a step and your possible future is influenced to be in that direction. As you go faster, your possible future becomes increasingly limited to that direction. As you approach the speed of light, deviation from that line become almost impossible and we get the curiosity of thread drift. Winter gets long in the frozen hemisphere.
John A. Either your post is extremely philosophically deep and I don't understand a word or the cold up there has congealed your gray matter. When I think of "drift" I think of high speed cornering or ocean currents. The word "drift" in these postings is used as a substitute for "getting off subject".
Yes.I have long thought this is also true when on the bike. At very low speeds, you can be hit by many things that appear from the side..(Deer, rabbits, kangaroos, vehicles etc…)But as you go faster, the chance of hitting something from the side becomes less, because anything that darts out from the side will not intersect your position before you have passed. It’s kind of like a triangle in front of you in the horizontal plane, with the apex at your front wheel and the base in the distance.Your future lies in this triangle.As you speed up, the base gets further away it also gets shorter, until at extreme speeds almost nothing can get you unless it’s virtually dead ahead.It will end up being a straight line of diminishing width at the extreme.Imagine moving down the road at 1000 km/h. It becomes almost impossible to be hit from the side, but equally impossible to miss anything that is on a collision course.When you look at the road as you accelerate, this can be seen as the edges begin to blur at the point of expansion.

What's wrong with Shinko tires and a throttle lock?
Nothing.As long as you don’t put them on your bike.
Could you be more specific, as to your negativity towards the Shinko brand?
I always drift off after 2 of these
