By Chris Ruddy The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has issued a public update on the state of asphalt on motorcycles.
The NIST published a video detailing its research in the video below:NIST released a video on its research on asphalt on motorbikes, which was published on its YouTube channel on January 30, 2017.
The video is titled “Surface and air permeability of asphalt” and features interviews with engineers, manufacturers, and other experts.NIST has been doing research for years on asphalt in general, and its findings have been cited in publications by industry groups and politicians, including Senator Cory Booker, Senator Joe Manchin, Representative Ted Lieu, and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.
In an interview with ABC News in November 2017, NIST said that, as a result of its research, “we are confident that we have found the optimal formulation of asphalt in the United States to provide a good surface for motorcycle riders and motorists.”
The agency did not elaborate on what the optimal formula of asphalt was.
The NIST video is a little confusing, however, as it is not completely clear what the purpose of the research was.
The first part of the video shows a motorcycle driver riding on asphalt.
The motorcycle driver’s hands and feet are clearly visible in the photo, as well as the road surface.
But the motorcycle rider’s hands are not visible at all.
The rider’s legs are visible, but their feet are not.
The second part of this video shows an asphalt bike ride.
The bike is completely covered by asphalt.
But its wheels are visible.
In fact, the wheels are covered with asphalt!
NIST’s video is not clear about whether or not the asphalt in this video is asphalt-based, though the video clearly shows asphalt as a part of its formulation.
The third part of NIST research also shows asphalt on the motorcycle, and it is completely clear that it is asphalt.NISST’s research was published in the Journal of the American Society for Testing and Materials.
The journal did not respond to ABC News’ request for comment.
