Why do people get bent out of shape when discussing an issue like counter steering beyond push right to turn right? You might not be interested, but you can also choose to "read" TB all day long.

I've read through Tony's articles before and I don't remember him mentioning that at higher speeds it's the gyroscopic effect of turning the wheel instead of the "leans primarily due to the torque about the longitudinal axis produced by the slip angle, which was introduced by the countersteer" that causes the bike to lean over.

Got a link to that one about the gyroscopes?
