I notice that a lot of riders do it but Stoner seems to be the most extreme exponent as in the video link above.
Any insight into this?
thats only co incidental its not countersteering, any wheelie will generally have the front wheel pointing one way or the other.The front wheel still has a balancing turning fuction even if its not on the ground
aka BMWST?
