There are no lateral gs to the rider with a motorcycle because it banks itself by leaning into a turn. All forces to the rider are straight down to the contact patch. The tires see lateral force, though, unless you're at the neutral speed for a particular banking. Then, it's just like riding on the level with the exception that everything weighs more.
