Well, I did not attend his class (obviously) and could only go with what was stated in the article, which DID state that one learns to countersteer unconsciously and that even pros do it unconsciously. I am in no way an idiot because I quoted an article. You may disagree with me on whether conscious countersteering is needed, espescially on the street at sane speeds, but that is not quite a good reason to call me a dummy or an idiot. And once again, if a "noob" can change the direction of a motorcycle, they already know how to countersteer. If they can hold a line, if they can learn to scan ahead and learn that the motorcycle will go where they look, and if they can learn to not outride their abilities or vision, they will be safe on the street. If you have to consciously pay attention to countersteering, you are doing it wrong. To place so much emphasis on countersteering is to take away emphasis from turning your head (which takes a conscious effort at first before it becomes habit) and looking through the turn instead of directly in front of you (which takes a conscious effort at first before it becomes habit). If you can already change the direction of a motorcycle, it is these last two things that need your concentration, and not the countersteering you are already doing. This is coming from someone who was a rider for 20 years before he even heard the word countersteer, yet had not ever crashed. If consciously countersteering was that important, I wouldn't be here for you to attack. Oh, and none of the above makes me an idiot or a dummy in any manner, shape, or form.
