Quote from: al167 on October 12, 2014, 02:04:32 PMits funny of you watch a pro going nosed dived they DO lean forward to pull it up. but they do it straight away as soon as they leave the upramp and time it with a blip on the throttle, they also sometimes kick the pegs gown and both feet come off until landing! but it looks natural and most people wont even think they had a moment!

Your arms don't do half the work that your legs or knees doWe've heard this a billion time sin GPB: people thinking you steer the bike with your body. That's not the way it works, unless you're talking about mid-air.MaX.

Quote from: jlou5641 on October 12, 2014, 07:44:08 PMSorry, but you can't compare MX and road bike!! It's an amalgam! In road bike you don't move your all body on front or on back of the bike... Only on left on or right.... It's only your chest you move back or front! And, for the countersteer... Just few word....in off topic... In Enduro, you listen to turn without countersteer, you listen to turn by turning your shoulder, and in concequence your chest, which turn your knees and legs, which turn faster than countersteer.... That you can't doing whit streetbike.... Search lesson from peterhansel, Frétigné etc etc... So, what it be said for GPB is not totally relevant for MX.... So, i tell this, i tell nothing ( french expession ), i give you my experience from a military school of motorcycling which is internationally recognized. I was schoolrider and after, sometime unoficial teacher for those who want more...
