When your CoG goes negative, drink a few rum and cokes.

You'll end up with a head full of rum and a gut full of coke.

The cokes lighter, due to the bubbles.

This raises your Cog up.








And thats why blokes that have a few too many rumbo's think they're ten foot tall and bulletpoof

Yes, please, put me down [or is it UP ?] for a Flux CoG Module.

Though I'd like to know if it is legal in all States for the Flux CoG Modulator to be connected to the headlight ?

Maybe all of this could've been avoided, as interesting as its been to read, if the term Centre of Gravity wasn't used. I'm a heavy bastard so when I stand up on my pegs, most of my weight is transferred to my pegs. When I sit down on my seat most of my lard is on my seat, which is higher up than my pegs. That was the 'Fact' my first post in this thread was pointing out, but I used the wrong term. My apologies to all, obviously its not as simple as that!

Wow this thread got in depth and out of control!

Hey, let's get out there and ride any way that feels good, it's the best thing to do err. . . . standing up and sitting down!

Ozimick I am not convinced. I remember Peter Brock playing around with Flux capacitors ( Trade name polarizer ) and his mode of transport only went faster. I think to move the CoG is a bigger issue. Are you sure you have not just aligning the molecules in the engine. I would hate to see you done for fraud. I do applaude your research in this area though. Flux capacitors can be a temperamental device to work with.

Thanks for the quick reply, Ozimick.

As I think about it more, perhaps it is just as well that your Flux CoG Module cannot be connected to the headlight.

The CoG Module might produce excessive Modulation of luminous flux in the headlight bulb, causing rapid-cycle lightening of the headlight and thus an annoying pogo-ing effect on the front suspension.

Still, after my big win at Ozlotto yesterday, I would like to order TWO reverse cycle polarisers, REGARDLESS OF COST.
Two to start with, anyway.
(a) I have never had a motorcycle with reverse, before, and
(b) When sailing my new yacht [just ordered] in the tropical Whitsundays, I can see a reverse cycle polariser being very useful for counteracting any cyclones that crop up [or DOWN, as the case may be].

Is the Polariser completely waterproof, or will I have to cover it with a Horse-size Trojan ?
