just curious , would you know what the steering angle is ?

It seems to be a lot of veteran bikes start at 20 degrees and evolved to 25 degrees as example then to modern era of 30 degrees .
speed way bikes like Jawa have 18 degree rake , sport / road bikes are 25 degree approx

The DT5 and DT6 look like they have more rake than std models , maybe just my eyes ?
