Well, that certainly puts the lie to the idea that the physics here are well-understood.

I'm quite sure my handling skills are several cuts above average, thanks.
Bike handling is significantly easier than motorcycle because, as you point out, the rider on the bicycle can manipulate...

Imma going to say this--when anyone actually agrees on what countersteering actually means, then we can have a talk. If all you're saying is that any time the hands are counteracting or correcting...

SO you admit that the motorcycle feels different from the bicycle? Maybe that's because they ARE different.

Let's see, tire width, weight, speed, driver--largely static vs. rider constantly...

0 miles on motorcycles, 10s of thousands of hilly curvy on bicycle. Not exactly flopping around, either. I think you've figured out whhat works for you and have just assumed it's true for everyone...

It actually doesn't demonstrate that. All it demonstrates is that there is an interaction between the two variables (weight shifting and a movable wheel) necessary to complete and control turns,...

You're both committing the same logical fallacy. You're drawing too much of a conclusion from a very limited experiment.

It actually doesn't demonstrate that leaning is less important than the...

So, the need for a movable steerer=countersteering is the method in which it is employed? That's a complete non sequitur.


When I lean into a turn, my wheel turns into the direction of the lean,...

Yeah, no. As far as I can tell, the wheel turns in the direction of the turn and lean to maintain the turn. To the extent I'm using counter-pressure on the handlebars, I'm doing it to prevent the...

That article can't be correct, if it were, no one could turn no-handed or steer a unicycle. It states a bunch of stuff that makes that possible is impossible. All due respect to the author, but...

And I'd say you really can't observe whether their hands are merely adjusting the bars to maintain balance while leaning or initiating the turn with their hands. Your assertion is that...

So I'm pretty sure this is nonsense even on its own terms. The whole idea behind countersteering is that it initiates a lean of the body mass in the opposite direction of the steer, thereby making...

This makes a lot of sense to me--that the differences in posture and weight distribution are way more important than the relatively tiny differences in effort required to turn the bars. Even if one...

Keeping in mind that much of steering is done by leaning, I think the likelihood we're going to notice marginal differences in steering handlebar effort is going to vary a lot by how our body weight...
