Sorry guys you got me, I am only 8 years old and ride a mini moto.
Just wanted to be like Casey Stoner thats all!
Ok I went out yesterday and experimented some more. Yes the bike does lean more if you hold the pressure, but I find the problem I have is that my bike swerves too much to the inside of the curve when I apply my countersteer input taking me off line.
I noticed alot of track riders and moto gp riders seem to be able to get their bikes to lean over quite far without their bikes swerving towards the inside of the bend as they are leaning over, in some cases looking like they are riding straight while lent over or leaning over. Either I am not quite applying the Countersteer correctly or perhaps I am and it is natural for the bike to swerve and lean at the same time?
Maybe I am not pressing on the clip ons properly causing the bike to swerve more than lean over? I have noticed that if you press on the clip on gently the bike leans a little and then seems to go diagonally across my lane, But when going faster I still find my bike will swerve too much to the inside before being leant over far enough into the corner, making left handers difficult to deal with on uk roads because I cannot square the corner off properly to see around them.
I am sorry for the repeated posts on this, and for getting on your nerves but I know there is something in the application of the countersteer that I am getting wrong, and you guys are the best people to solve it. I am hoping someone will have had the above problem at some point and be able to say to me what you did to get over it.
I bet if I lived in America I would find left handers easier than right handers because of this swerving/leaning problem I currently have on uk roads.
Do any of you find your bikes swerving and leaning at the same time? is there a way to force the bike to lean more than swerve when applying the countersteer?
