Re: Left pull bike: let dealer ride and submit PUMA to BMW
My LT pulled a little at times, but I tried something I saw somewhere, on a straight two lane road, with no oncoming traffic, move over to the left side. The pull reversed. It had to do with the "crown" of the road, when the pavement is slanted a little to the right, as in the right lane, it causes the center of the "track" on the tire to be slightly offset, when slanted to the left, the track offset is to the other side.
Try it and see if it has any affect on the GT. It may not, but would be interesting to see.
I also found on the LT that if it was pulling a little one way, I could swing out the little "wind wing" under the mirror on one side or the other and affect it. Much like you can ride hands off, and make the bike go to the left by holding out one hand in the wind, to the right with the other hand.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
