  • It is a game changer

    Counter steering is a very basic and easy way to lean the motorcycle over to bank around a curve. The bike is destabilised for a split second to initiate the turn into the corner. It is vital that all riders understand the process of steering by using the handlebars. It does take time to learn and understand what you are doing with the handlers when steering, but once mastered it is a game changer. Both hands can be used and so can the body as you help to corner by leaning and using a little bit of weight transfer.
