The results of that effort can be seen on the showroom floor of any motorcycle
dealership in the country, where off-the-rack sportbikes come equipped with
handling capabilities the pros could only dream of back then. The fact that the
average street rider and the average club racer have suspension adjustments
and technology that were only available to the factory teams a mere 10 years ago
is a mixed blessing. Proper suspension setup is key for fast riding. But approach

For example “centre of gravity” and “centre of pressure”. We can do the same
thing with vehicle springing and the result is known as the spring centre. Fig. 6.18
illustrates the idea. When the suspension frequency of the rear is greater than
that of the front then the spring centre will be behind the CoG position. Therefore,
by comparing the spring centre to the CoG position we can get a rapid idea of the
overall setup of the vehicle. This assumes that we have near to constant wheel
rate ...

However, if you don't want to mess around with your suspension settings before
you can go ride, just set them to the middle of their adjustment range and be
done with it. On a big bike you can get away with this because the bike is so
much heavier than the rider. (Not so much on a sportbike or racebike, where the
rider's weight is closer to the bike's weight, and suspension tuning is paramount.)
Check your owner's manual to determine exactly what adjusters exist on your
bike, put ...
