What is counter steering?

This is a concept that many people, including experienced riders, find difficult to comprehend. At Massbrook Driving School we will help you understand the importance of counter-steering and soon you will realise counter steering is simply how a motorcycle turns.

The most efficient method to get a motorcycle to go from upright to a leaning position is to introduce handlebar inputs. By pressing forward on the handlebar on the side that you want to turn, you lean the bike into a turn. Press on the right handlebar to start a lean to the right and press on the left handlebar to turn left. Easy right?

Once the bike is in a leaning position, the front tire will turn slightly into the direction of the turn. You need to relax your arms and allow this natural balancing effect to happen. This may feel strange in the beginning but our expert instructors will have you comfortable in the curves in no time.

Slow riding

This is an area where many riders struggle and feel a lack of confidence.

Motorbikes feel less stable at slow speeds making it important to keep a smooth and even drive. The throttle on many motorbikes is very sensitive or ‘jumpy’, making it difficult to control your bike at a walking pace. Instead, we utilise the clutch and rear brake to control speed and stability.

Slow-speed riding can be tricky, and it requires patients. As with most things in life, practice makes perfect. Our expert instructors will explain and show you all the techniques required to master this skill and quickly build your confidence.
