Ryan "F9", spokeperson and vlogger for Canada's Fort Nine retailer (like Revzilla), has the unique ability to take complex issues and reduce things down to layman's terms and understanding.  

He's the fella that started the current YouTube controversy regarding counter steering and lean techniques that MC Rider, Tony Palldino, MotoJitsu and others have been punting around the last while.  Below is the video clip.



Ryan does have a double major in physics and history and his presentation material is usually well researched.  He's also wicked smart and has a unique sense of humour.

Of all the years I rode sport bikes from the early 90's to the early 2000's I was a pretty good street rider. I could knee down on long sweepers or stay in the saddle and still go very fast. I usually opted to just stay in the saddle. I love Ryan's videos and still to this day learn something from him.

It's gone very quiet; is everyone out riding, testing the theories? Wink

There's nothing new about counter steering, when I used to regularly buy monthly bike mags there'd be the occasional article on it aimed primarily at the knee down fraternity. I've briefly glanced at them then moving on to a subject that actually interests me.

Now I'm off out on my push bike where the only thing I'll be testing is today’s  wind chill.

We all do counter steering anyway (at anything above a walking pace anyway), just a lot of folks don't realise they are doing it. Physics is right y'see, whether you believe in it or not 🙂
This link below covers counter steering quite well too - https://bike.bikegremlin.com/2530/countersteering-bicycle-steering/

Although now that I have a trike counter steering is pretty much out the window. If I try counter steering I'll go in the ditch or worse...

Yep, you can't do that geometric precession thing on three wheels.
