This shows promise. Maybe in 10 years we will be riding 2WD bikes with some sort of modified limited slip differential system. It could prove useful in low-traction environments.

I think you would find that the system would prevent front end tucks by reducing the load on the front tire. Tucks occur when the front has more sideways then inline tendencies, and this system would increase those inline tendencies which would by default reduce the sideways ones.



In other words the tire will want to track properly.

unless the front wheel was turning counter the back wheel , it would be impossibel to wheelie as any force as a result of the wheel would only put MORE weight on the back tire, which is already in contact with the ground

Wasn't there a two wheel drive bike made by Rokon about 30 years ago? They used to advertise in outdoor/hunting/fishing magazines.

It seems the front end would be more inclined to wash out when you're cranked n banked because you'd be unloading the front wheel while you're still close to the limits of adhesion exiting corners, probably work on a goldy-wang or other touring bike.

I'm dismayed at your lack of conscience and citizenship.
