    How to auto-balance a bike? Just hang a enough amount of weight below the ground level, very simple. But this solution brings about unnatural behavior thanks to the law of inertia: the bike nosedives when accelerating forward and wheelies when braking!! To prevent this, I cunningly constrained the weight's Y and Z axes movement onto a static body which is parented to the bike's main body. For more detail, please see "balancer" rigid body object configuration.
