This is why all this nonsense about countersteering or not is wide of the mark; these guys operate at a level far, far beyond the conventional.
OK, I give...Both you and Mdub know more about this stuff than me.
Regarding counter steering, though. I like to watch road racers peel off the wall to attack T1. This is at NASCAR ovals with a road course infield. The technique is pretty physical. No sweep to it at all. Definite bar inputs. I think they call it a pre-turn or something. And it's on the brakes. Point to point like I suggested before. Course these are not MotoGP riders, but something similar at Indy I think.
I'll pay closer attention to T1 entry at the Indy Mile next year. Thanks for the tip.
