Riding Tip: Countersteering

Have you ever been in a situation where you have had to dodge a pothole very quickly? Or went into a corner to fast and felt you weren’t going to make it through? If you have been in one of these situations, you most likely tried to make the bike move by leaning into the corner using your own body weight. This is fine if you have enough time to make the turn- However there is a very clever alternative that most people don’t know or think about, called counter steering. Counter Steering will help you turn or swerve your motorcycle much faster and get out of danger if need be

How to use Counter steering
Counter steering initiates the bikes lean into a corner. Basically what you need to do – is push forward on the handlebar that is on the same side as the direction you want the bike to turn in. So if you press the right side of the handle bars quickly the bike tilts to the right and you turn right. This can very effectively be used to dodge objects in the road or to turn tighter into a corner.

Counter Steering
