...take a look at the front wheel position in this pic.
You are correct. Counter-steering only initiates the turn but as the bike starts to lean into the turn the front wheel automatically shifts toward the turn. The front wheel knows what to do so don't fight it. Interesting that you noticed it - most people don't.Works for our bike, but somehow I get a different feeling when riding other bikes, in my experience the Z800 and Duke 690
I feel that countersteering does help initiate the turn in, but just as it's leaning over, I realise that the handlebars start fighting back, and instead of the wheel pointing in the opposite direction of the turn, it points toward the turn
Why's it different? Is it the rake and trail? Springs?
My dad told me that one summer when I flew home I went out for a ride with him on his other bike. I had to have him clarify that he was only talking about going through the mud in our driveway. When he first said it I looked at him like he was a few cards short of a full deck."use only the rear brake the front is dangerous..."
