Adverse camber

An adverse camber is where the road surface is higher on the lefthand side riding towards a lefthand bend.

To a righthand bend the road is higher on it’s righthand side. Adverse cambers increase the angle of lean the motorcycle requires to negotiate a bend.

One would be advised to consider the type of tyres you have on the motorcycle and also the road surface, adhesion and weather conditions.

A crossfall camber is where the road surface is lower on the lefthand side towards a lefthand bend.

Approaching a righthand bend the road is higher on the lefthand side. This gives the rider an obvious advantage regarding stability.
