Default Weaves, Wobbles, and Tank-Slappers


I知 new to the forum and doing research in motorcycle dynamics and stability. In particular I知 interested in what is variously called weave, wobble, and tank-slapper. I would like to know if anyone has experienced a weave, wobble, or tank-slapper, or knows someone who has, and would be willing to share what happened.

In particular I am interested in the circumstances under which the weave, wobble, or tank-slapper occurred. Things like:

What type of motorcycle were you riding?
How fast were you going?
Were you accelerating or slowing down?
Were you going straight or in a turn?
What did you do to stop the weave, wobble, or tank-slapper?
What did you do to make sure it did not happen again?

In other words I知 interested in as many facts about the incident as you can give.

To help me in my research I have started a forum specifically for discussions about weave, wobble, and tank-slappers. Again, if you have experienced a weave, wobble or tank-slapper, or know of some one who has, and would be willing to share the experience please go to

Thanks in advance.
