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.
“Watch out for everything bigger than you, they have the "right of weight"
