News flash. It does not matter if it is a Sport Bike, Dualsport or Cruiser. If you are moving in a straight line on a motorcycle and want to turn YOU COUNTERSTEER PERIOD.

When you turn with no hands on your dualsport a countersteer has taken place. It was brought about by a transfer of weight instead of a push on the bar but it happened or you would have fallen over.


Again. The reason it is important to practice the push Left go Left/ Push right go right is so that your brain will do the right thing when panic sets in.
