Now turn RIGHT slightly.

Eventually you'll see that you're TURNING and the bike is UPRIGHT. like this:

(bike left bar, you right bar, whole thing turning right)

You're not a jackass I don't think, you just think you know more than you do. sorry bud. This has no implication on your riding ability btw. So don't go there ;-).

I know exactly what I know BUD and nothing less. Go back and reread from the post you quoted dude. You are mistaken.

Thats not the whole point, no.

Well I got a half off trackday you can come to the track with me plus I have a extra set of leathers, let me know your first trackday will make you twice the rider and it humbled me alot. Also im going to go do a MSF course next month with three friends who are brand new and I convinced to do msf before they ride of course they pointed out im a hypocrite w/o one myself so im doing it with them, so your more then welcome to join msf also. Then you can be one of the guys that tells everyone to do a trackday and msf lmao.
