Counter steering experiments

Ive been overcoming intuition and purposely inducing counter steer. Turning left and pulling on the right grip took some talking myself into, but now i am getting better at controlling it. Started with a few little tugs in sweepers and low speed swerving. The bike just wants to "fall" in a good way. feels like momentum vs gyroscopic force vs traction :). Im starting to understand what makes those racers so fast. I did notice once i recognised it, i did it more than i thought. I can feel leaned over that i do pull on the opposite bar alot. Perhaps another good reason to hang off the bike. But i find it most useful at turn in. Brake later and turn in faster. This is a skill i deffinately want to improve, ive gotten faster already. Anyone mastered countersteering? Tips and tricks are welcome.

You will find that you more than likely do more pushing with the bar side that you are turning into than you do pullling the opposite side!
