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"

http://newton.delphigl.de/newtonplayground.html

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?

Cheers,
Jürgen.
