When I was looking into solving dynamics code, I saw that people were using ODE ... and similar dynamic engines to simulate motorcycle behavior; a cycle is almost the same code as a semi, with Very narrow wheel base, two fixed parts to the wheels and a pivot.
Newton Dynamics Engine is more accurate than ODE and there is a frontend called "Newton Playground"
which helps assembling the Newton elements like joints, springs etc.
In general these physics engines cannot emulate a bike with a rider in motion, but they might bring more light into the pedalling-steering-interference discussion.
Have there been reports from the people that have an oil damper on their pivot?
Are there any?
