if you are not counter-steering the beast,,well sign up for one of these great teachers classes:
1,, laine macteague or http://earthrider-amgi.blogspot.com/
2,, Neduro ,,,, http://vimeo.com/18717832
3.. Jimmy Lewis's classes,,,http://jimmylewisoffroad.com/
was the best skill i picked up in recent time,,you CAN teach old dawgs new tricks...
'tis remarkable how easy and natural it feels to just stay vertical in the saddle and to:
1,,turn right,,push down on right foot-peg
2,,press left knee into tank for stability
3,,push on right handlebar and adjust pressure for how rapidly ya want to turn
opposite sequence for turning left
it's as easy as 1,2,3shared by an old knee dragging canyon carver MRA #11
like i've mentioned before,,i offer/demonstrate that technique for free as part of a 21'' wheel purchase...it truly is uncanny how well you can get the beast to turn with the 21'' shod with D606 street legal knobbies...TKC-80 is another well sticking pavement knobby tire.
