After riding a motorcycle for several years I learned about countersteering. A light bulb came on about an experience I had as a child. After riding a bicycle for several years, I got a bike with a steering wheel. It took me a long time to learn to ride it and I didn't know why. After I learned about countersteering I realized that when I got a bike with a steering wheel I was trying to steer it like a two track vehicle. It took many falls to learn to countersteer using a steering wheel, not knowing that is what I was trying to learn to do. That bike also had a "drag brake" lever, and a rear wide slick tire, it was the 70's.
