just try it...

go down a straight road, put no input to the bars. then try to turn the bars left to go left. you won't be able to do it.

I'll never forget the ride that I 'figured out' countersteering. That was the beginning of me really learning how to ride a motorcycle properly.

to really feel the effect of counter steering, u need to fast bends (opposites, so left then right, or visa versa) close together, so when u are the bike is leaning down on one bend, really pull on the handle bar and feel the countersteering pick ure bike up and put it down for you, settin you up for the next bend.

i know ie explained that shee-yite, but what i mean is, use a really vicious bit of counter steering, too get your bike from lying down one way to the opposite!

whatever way you are turning, push on bar on the inside of the turn and let it lean bro. the gyroscopic effect of the wheels and inertia does the rest

i remember one of the 1st few days of riding i was riding along and back then it was natural to not counter steer and i had to think about it. needless to say i was fine just look a little more thought untill i was doin 50 on a almost freeway type road went around a turn and almost $hit myself wanted to go left and i started to drift right into the next lane caught myself and all was fine. i have learned better since then...
