You mean counterweighting. Lots of riders do it all the time but I assume from the comments that cops in formation are supposed to stay bolt upright (relative to their bikes.)

P2 (if that's the designation for the front-row, right hand rider) also has his head turned and canted more than his colleague. Looks like better form to me. I like the fact these guys are actually wearing some protective gear.

Or hanging loose.

I look at it as countersteering, but also shifting and leaning upward, out of the turn so the bike goes straighter.

Yeah, JOOC I tried it this afternoon. Felt dorky.

Greetings from NJ

That pict would be.... me.

As this is my first post here on ADV, allow me to introduce myself. I am an LD rider active on the MTF forum. I have 2 goldwings 2004 and 2008. The 2004 has 131,000 miles on it and the 2008 had 70,000.
