Yea, but if you come upon a fresh patch of road work then dealing with that island of gravel (or other on the surface) may not turn out so well. I prefer to start in the outside tire path, hit the inside tire path at the apex, and then drift back to the outside tire path. If there's gravel or other , then I just stay in the tire path I happen to be in.

I want to correct myself from earlier ... when I was talking about my experience with steering, I had it backwards.

What I meant to say -- I learned pushing the bars as - push inside bar tightens the turn, and pushing outside widens. Sound pretty basic.

Also, to clarify my use of Outside - Inside -Outside. That doesn't mean Inside is the lane stripe. It's merely means movement in the lane, even if only a few feet. On highways, with blind turns, the last thing you want is to be near that stripe when someone is coming from the other direction.
