That is naturally how a YaMOOha steers.
I always have sympathy for the poor motorcycle when I see pictures like this. When Johnny Carson first interviewed Evel Knievel, he imagined the motorcycle becoming aware of Evel's approach and thinking, "Here comes Evel ... YUUUCCHHH!"
Back on topic, I can tell you that, after fifty years in the saddle, I cannot say I steer as I should. If I suddenly catch sight of an obstacle ahead, and I surely should veer right to avoid it, my natural inclination is to turn the handlebar to the right ... just the wrong thing to do. I do not actually DO this, but I think there is a bit of delay before I push the right end of the handlebar forward. I keep on riding and learning.
I am learning that my new CBR-250R is a very fine bike indeed, and recently I learned that riding soon after surgery is a fine way to learn how rotten the roads are here in Toronto Canada. Every bump sent me a message, so the ride was short. But today I will ride again.
