I don't have to worry about steering as I always hop off my bike when I get to a corner and just wheel it around until the road is straight.

I just find it less stressful

Do you push against the outside bar to turn it when you are wheeling it like that or do you hang off??

Look I just wheel it ok?

I wheel it so I don't have to think about these terribly scientific questions.

I mean I just wheel it don't you get it!???

I don't believe you can steer a bike when wheeling it by hanging off or pushing a bar that is just idiotic, I push it in a straight line and the bike turns automatically!

There is no reason or science it just does it ok???

No I refuse to believe it could make a difference and why are you people pressuring me I know it won't work anyway!

I am getting stressed now and will have to start pushing my bike on the straights and on the bends, this riding lark is getting way too stressful.

First time I ever rode a sportbike was on my friends SV650. I had ridden dirtbikes a lot before and some cruisers. After going a bit I realized that I really had to push on the handlebars to get it to make a corner. Was really weird that to make a left turn I have to press on the left handle bar and I didn't know it was called "counter steering" at the time.

I'm still getting used to leaning more in the corner on my 955i. Wasn't sure if it was a good idea for my first street bike to be a near liter bike, but haven't had problems with it yet.
