    Awesome! Thanks so most for posting this video demonstration and for taking the time to put it together. Cornering is a big weak spot for me and this gives me something tangible that I can go out and practice.

  6. Nice Video. I have be surfing your sight. Just asked a question on another.

    Just wanted to clarify one point. While you do it correctly. Countersteer and counter pressure are two different things and two parts to faster corners. After you countersteer, by literally steering slightly to the opposite direction, then applying pressure with the inside hand. The the pressure was counter to the weight being applied to the outside foot on a seated road bike turn.

    Countersteer set the turn and counter pressure planted the front tire.
