Radioscopy of some dirt getoffs


I looked at some video of getoffs on dirt, and basically it boils down to rear wheel loosing traction and trying to pass the front wheel, with the result being a circle traced by the rear wheel and highside the unfortunate outcome..
With this system, whenever rear wheel looses traction, front wheel pulls the whole bike forward with the result being back wheel falling back in line.
I am sure the big manufacturers will take a look at your practical experiment of bringing a big dual purpose AWD to the real world.
They will take notice, and the first one to bring such a bike to the market will make a killing.

I am interested!q
