When this thread started I didnít fully understand countersteering but then found this video:

Nearly every time out I practiced what I learned. I commute 5 days a week on the bike.

Tonight around 8:00, about a mile from home, going 45 mph, a van traveling in the opposite direction turned into a parking lot on my right, crossing directly in front of me.

A push on the bars, some hard braking; for a split second both tires locked up, off the brakes and I cleared his rear bumper by about a foot.

To everyone who helped me understand more about countersteering...


Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
