So, we have to piled up threads here, about two of the more contentious topics on motorcycle boards. Whether it is important for n00bs to understand countersteering, and ATGATT. I wondered if their is a correlation, so I'm conducting a poll. Please just participate in the poll, there are already places to go pile on the side you don't agree with. It seems we basically have four possibilities, based on a two by two matrix: ATGATT, Yes teach countersteering. ATGATT, Pfft to teaching countersteering. Gear as I see fit, Yes teach countersteering. Gear as I see fit, Pfft to countersteering. Obviously, gear as I see fit and are somewhat subjective, so please answer according to what you feel your philosophy is. David B.
