There are two possible answers for this. Either: 1) It is a set of
training wheels for a young motorcycle rider, or 2) It was the Kieth
Code demonstration bike with a large set of outriggers used for
demonstrating and teaching motorcycle handling.
We'll examine option one first, training wheels. The company Wheels 4
Tots provides traning wheels for off-road bikes, usually the very
small 50, 80 and 125cc displacement bikes.
Photographs are available on there website here:
And a description and ordering information here:
In addition to kids bikes, there are retractable wheels for some
larger motorcycles. The Landing Gear company makes a set for the
Honda Gold Wing 1500, available at:
Safety Features, Inc. also makes retractable wheels for the Honda Gold
Wing 1500, 1800, and many of the larger Harley Davidson bikes. You
can see these at:
As a side note, traning wheels would not work well for anything over
about 8 to 10 miles per hour on a motorcycle. Motorcycles turn by way
of leaning in the direction of the turn once the speed is over 8 to 10
miles per hour. Training wheels would interfere with this lean, and
make the bike very hard to turn.
It appears the both the Landing Gear company and Safety Features, Inc.
offer ways to overcome this limitation, either with retracting wheels,
or wheels that lean with the bike.
The second option, specialty bikes with outriggers as used by Keith
Code in his Superbike Training school, are not available for purchase.
They are patented inventions of Mr. Code.
There are several models, including the 'lean bike' at:
The 'slide bike' at:
and the 'braking bike' at:
All of those bikes have outriggers of some kind or another to help the
student overcome the (very real) fear of crashing during extreme
maneuvers, including high lean angle, rear wheel lockup in a corner,
and front wheel lockup.
I hope this answers your question; if you need further elaboration,
feel free to ask for a clarification.
