    Then I guess I was counter steering without realizing that I was really doing it.
    But now that I am conscious of what I am doing, I can take tighter turns and still keep my speed and my bike in control, which was not easy a week ago when I used to lean the bike.
    And yes it is much easier to avoid a rough patch of road with counter steering. Thanks for the advice brother.
    I would like to thank my legs for supporting me, my arms for being always by my side and my fingers; I could always count on them.

    Guys I would like to add on counter steering almost everything is discussed no offence with anyone here
    1 Try on a open road at speeds around 50-60 Kmph
    2. while riding lift your left hand off the bike and then push the right handle bar away and in downwards direction little bit , you will see that the bike is leaned towards right and going right.
    3. Again from starting at speed 50-60Kmph lift your right hand and push the left handle bar away and downwards little bit and you will see that the bike leaned towards left and going left ..
    Correct me if this is not right .
    Now for mastering this and learning more watch this video

    Just went through the posts and videos yesterday night.
    Did a trial test in a safe area and o boy.. its just works superb..
    Did a 150km hill ride(descending).
    I cant believe myself, curves were handled almost avg of 70-80( except haipins and sharp u turns).
    In highway firstime did 100+ turns with confidence..
    Hope this will not make me more lazy..(not much forcefully leaning required)

    Thank you guess..
