It amazes me the number of long time riders who don't understand countersteering. That and look where you want to go are the two most important "basic" skills.

Oh, and the front brake is your friend.

I learned that (after being told the exact opposite for 33 years) the bike, itself, is not trying to kill me. I took the course with my sis, Meaner, and we were both scared to death of riding before then. Now I have no fear, just a healthy respect for the ride. Plus, we both got a 100 on our written tests and got a free gremlin bell!

^ hold in the clutch? won't that get rid of any engine braking you have going on and cause you to go wide?

i'll disagree w/ clutching in, i recommend, stabilize the throttle, look thru the turn and more countersteer pressure (more lean)
