    Cool video, but the coulomb friction model he uses doesn't apply to friction of material pairs that include rubber. Contact area does affect how much grip you have.

    Old Harley guys still do that. Yikes. It's funny how old-wives-tales like that stick around for so many decades after being proven wrong time and time again...

    And motorcycle tires are so staggeringly good now for any application or use you'd ever want
