How To Countersteer Motorcycle

Countersteering is essential for maneuvering a motorcycle. To initiate a left turn, simply pull on the right handlebar while leaning to the left. This counterintuitive action causes the motorcycle to lean and turn into the direction opposite to the handlebar's pull—hence the term "countersteering."

The degree of handlebar input required varies with speed: at lower speeds, more input is necessary to achieve a turn, whereas at higher speeds, a slight push can significantly alter the direction of the bike. Mastering countersteering at various speeds requires practice and finesse.
