Wow

yet another thread on an OLD subject.

I think the use of word steering is not helpful - you do not ever hold the bars fixed (like steering a car) - you only counter push briefly to lean the bike - then let the bike realign itself to stay balanced in the newly initiated turn

what confounds newbies (as it did me) was the delicate change of balance from NEEDING counterpushing, to being able to get a lot of help from body shift at slow speeds.

I finally made peace by NOT trying to think out slow speed turns - just do it - the brain is quite capable if let alone to do its work.
