Just a brief note to thank you for the great experience that is doing one of your courses. Despite having the mother of all colds, I went home on a real high. My biking life has certainly been very much enriched as a result of our initial acquaintance and subsequent friendship.Panos
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.
