WTF?

This place is fooking dead! All kinds of people on but no one is posting...

OK, I have somewhat stoopid question for you informative know it alls....

Saturday while riding my back end kept on "fishing" back and forth. This happened several times throughout the day. It was not the crazy wind and nothing was on my tires aka water, oil, etc. This only happened when I was on the trottle (mainly on turns) and not the brake. Remember I am new to the game so excuse the ignorance........OK, so you know when you hit a pot hole with your car and it can knock your alignment out of whack.....can the same principle happen with your bike and it's suspension? Any ideas as to what was going on, what I should look at?

when youre bike's back end was fishing back and forth, where was your rump?

it is possible that while in the act of hitting the throttle you threw your rump out to counteract the twisting motion of your wrist. I believe it was Einstein who noted that with every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Given that simple Physics principal, we can hypothesize, with a twist of your right wrist, your left buttcheek could've leaned off to the left. The power of the bike would then add the weight of your left buttcheek to start the 'fishing' to one side. the 'fishing' to one side would spark an opposite reaction by your right buttcheek, which in turn said buttcheek would then try to compensate and cause 'fishin' to the other side....now you have your 'fishing back and forth' motion.

You are walking a fine line when you suggest a female's arse is responsible in any way for an unbalanced load, improper weight distribution, etc....tread lightly my friend!

Im simply using physics to explain the issue. And now that youve brought up the issue of load and weight lets not forget, strain on suspension and air pressure exertion in the tires which could cause unusual treadwear or blow out. Over time, the continued wrist twist - buttcheek scenario would most likely cause both of these scenarios (suspension/treadwear) which added to the stresses of wrist twist - buttcheek hang, could result in the 'fishing back and forth' motion.

Once again, all completely related to physics

love ya boom

Boom,
Sounds like either your tire pressure is off or your back wheel is out of alignment.
Both are easy to fix.
Let me know if you need help.

If that doesn't fix it it could be your swingarm bushings.
Maybe your forks are slightly tweaked in the triple clamps.
All easy to check.
You're welcome.

I'd say low tire pressure, cuz your butt isn't that big.

If your frame, forks, or rear wheel were out of alignment, the bike would handle funny the entire time, not just when under power.

Your rear is probably 10 psi low. At that pressure, it'll feel like you're riding on ice as the rear slithers left and right.

Not true.
Under power you are transfering weight to the rear. If the prob is there it might only show up then.
No offense to boom but it is very common for riders to think the prob is coming from the rear when it is the front end with the problem. It has happened to me several times while racing.
I agree it could be low tire pressure, just giving her some more options to check.
