Check your physics, OP is correct 1g.

Garvity (1g) acting on moment arm .707 height of upright CoM, must be counteracted by equal moment arm of .707 height of upright CoM (45deg angle) so horizontal accel must also be 1g.

Lol, I love it when people show their physics ignorance while attempting to point out someone else's

45deg (axis through COM and contact patch) means 1G of lateral. Doesn't mean the bike is actually at 45deg, though.

Soft RC wheels can pull well over a G, so it may hang in there longer than you think.

But that's just a cantilever helmet mount... Still cool, though.

Who gives a shit about his juristiction.
Who gives a shit what laser/radar shobadedowob gear he has on the bike.

Only thing I wanna know is, Where do I sign up? Might be the most awesome job ever!

You are correct. For some reason I always thought it was .707 G's for 45 degrees. Since many modern sportbikes are capable of 50+ degrees of lean angle, this means they can pull better than 1 G. This puts them equal to or better than most cars. I had always read that cars with their much larger tire contact patches could pull more lateral Gs than bikes. Most cars pull between .8 and 1 G on the skidpad with a few going higher. Maybe Motorcycle tires are stickier than car tires?
