That riding a motorcycle is not easy is an understatement. You need to learn how to ride, just as you needed to learn how to ride a bicycle. But once you got the hang out of riding a bicycle, you no longer needed training wheels. Right?
Well, not according to Hiyun Yun. He filed a patent for collapsable training wheels for motorcycles, although he doesn't call them training wheels, he calls it a Safety Device for Motorcycles
The summary of his patent describes it best (if you can make sense of it):
|Disclosed is a safety device for motorcycle, the safety device for motorcycle comprising: a supporting assembly installed onto both lateral side of the motorcycle body, with a plurality of parts of which are rotatable relative to each other; a supporting wheel installed onto the supporting assembly which is rotatable relative to the supporting assembly a push-pull unit that connects the supporting assembly to the motorcycle body, pushes the supporting assembly in order for the supporting wheel contacting with ground, and pulls the supporting assembly in order for the supporting wheel for taking off the ground; and a control unit that controls the push-pull unit. According to the present invention the motorcycle will not easily fall down when it stops for a moment in driving, the driver can easily support the motorcycle, and the motorcycle will not incline over a predetermined angle in driving curved path.|
Well, I wish Mr Yun good luck with his patent. That he may sell millions.
