Handlebar - Chopper Motorcycle built with LEGO Mindstorms EV3

Take a motorcycle and start removing parts. You get a chopper. Like this one. It is built with LEGO Mindstorms EV3. It has one large and one medium motor. It could kind of turn, but moving forward with it is very funny. There is a "more sports like version" available at Ninja - Sports Motorcycle built with LEGO Mindstorms EV3

Currently, the motorcycle has no sensors. It's more of an exercise in construction, but if you attach sensors and think of a way to attach them send us a picture. 

Join the course A robot a "day" keeps the questions awake where we will further discuss the motorcycles, how to build them and what tasks to accomplish with them.

A robot a 'day'. On Two wheels and with Gears - Motorcycle

There are so many things you could learn. Why not group two of them in one - gears and staying on two wheels. For this, we would use a motorcycle robot built with LEGO Mindstorms EV3.  

A robot a 'day'. The simplest solution that works. Turning with motors

Here is a good problem- turning with the motors that we've built in the previous sections of the course. You noticed that turning with the robots is quite difficult because they lose balance and they fall. So we must learn the basic thing about engineering - the simplest solution is probably good enough.
