As a new street rider, I found this to be very informative. Thanks for sharing. I don't, however, plan on going much faster than 65/100 on my XT225 (or any motorcycle, for that matter).

Interesting. Good thing they've come a long way with understanding the geometry and how/why it happens. Laying forward eliminates the wobble because it puts more weight on the front tire. That was the counter-intuitive thing they told us during track days, if the bike starts to head shake, get further up on the front.
