Yup, that "steering locked up"-feeling is what you get when you lean in the desired direction, but steer in stead of countersteer in the same direction.
Lack of skill induced mishap.

Advance to 3:30 for the money shot... or scan through the bar looking for the fun like I did. Watching that boring ass harley rider for three and a half minutes was not on my agenda today...

I generally cover the brake. Just something I have done since my dirt bike days as a teenager.

I got SCREAMED at and HECKLED when I took Lee Parks Total Control.

They tried to beat into my brain that I should NOT be covering the brake.

I started riding dirt bikes when I was 12 or 13, and I don't cover the brake all the time or even "generally" or most of the time. I only cover it at specific times when I feel it is appropriate.

Same here, coming up to a turn, intersection, blind drive, etc.
