    Is that yours? Are you managing forces there, or is it "full passive" like the other motorbike simulators listed here up to now?

    In real life you have to lean "actibly" so its more real than getting movements by motors imho

    Motors should be set to resist to the roll as a function of speed. Those "things" out there turning on their own are not sims but promotinal bullshit

    Yes. most of them turn when people move the steering bar. That wheeeley guy has to really use his weight tu lean in order to turn

    I know I am bit late on this thread but last night I thought of MotoGP sim and was wondering why not putting the bike floor a bit higher. Assuming the virtual road is ~70cm above the ground it would be easy to mount springs and a counterweight like a pendulum. Apart from that the hole thing could be mounted just like a regular 2DOF sim on a cardanjoint. With this setup even weak motors should get you back into position. Another approach would a combination of passive and active movement. If you add a "controller" with a gyroscope sensor to your body your angle could be submitted to the machine which acts like a servomotor then.
