Simpleplanes's first realistic Bike (READ DESCRIPTION)

Please UPVOTE AND SPOTLIGHT
I want this way to make bikes to be known by as many people as possible.

I've been experimenting for a while, trying to make a self stabilizing bike, this bike still retains a gyro, but uses it only to lean, the steering input depends both from speed and lean angle and as you will notice, the front wheel is free to turn!
Yaw to lean, Pitch=throttle, Brake to.... guess what? VTOL to do wheelies/stoppies

    Thanks to everyone who upvotes and spotlights, I really just want as many people to see how I made this bike, so that everyone can make a realistic handling bike, so feel free to modify and experiment with it!

    @MintLynx thank you! Spent a lot of time into this "self adjusting" steering system, its main problem was that it ended up being either too janky, or too stable, with some trial and error, I ended up with something I find acceptable.

    This thing handles quite well, it feels a little jank at low speeds but once up to speed it works flawlessly. Clever ideas in this build!

    @WarshipDude yes, even if in SP wheels do not generate any gyroscopic stabilization, the steering assembly (front fork, wheel and suspension) has a limited rotation of 30°, but it's free to move in its range. Resulting in a speed and roll angle relative steering input.

    What an interesting experiment that you did, so it should work like a real bike?
