I used a digital angle finder found on my Bosch level for doing crown moulding.

Looks like somebody got a new smart level for Easter. Or maybe an app for their iPhone. :rotf:

Call Verizon and tell them you want to know your lean angle on your bike and mount the Droid level on the bike.

Re: Angle of lean when on sidestand

Can you better define what you mean by "angle of lean"? Are you trying to calculate the maximum lean angle the bike can achieve while riding from a full upright position before hard parts touch down, get to the edge of the tire, other? I know the maximum lean angle while riding is more than 11.5 degrees from a full upright position, 11.5 is less than a HD Softail.


From a review of the LT -

"The BMW designers even gave you 40 degrees of lean angle to keep up with your friends on Sunday afternoon rides."

Actually, the "Bubble" app will give you degree angles on your DROID. ;)
