 In the Tour de France bicycle race, I see motorcycles with two front wheels following the bicycles. They look neat going around a tight turn. But they have a very complex front suspension.  Just how does it all work?

My experience on a Oregon wonderful riding road, UT works like crap.  But better the a standard 3 wheel Harley.  Way to much work for corners.  Rode in a 3 wheel side by side sit down type also and that was worse.  My guess 3 tires to close together?  From what I recall it all looked rather standard just reconfigured?  And I also wasn't looking join the 3 wheel crowd.   Also my test was prior to tilting.  https://youtu.be/t30NU_v5YcM

I've never ridden a trike, the Can Am Spyder is supposed to be pretty good.
