OK so try this. When you are balancing and need the bike to tip to the right, turn the bars to the right and see what happens. You either fall over or you put your foot down to keep from falling over. Your gyro angle has already been shot down (for the most part) in this very thread.

You are mistaken (wrong) be it through ignorance, willful or otherwise it doesn't matter... You are still wrong.

Now go fetch some beer.
