This is a slight update to the original Countersteering 101 video. The original description was:
This is a video which is actually intended to stand on its own, unlike the other two I've posted. Covers the very basics of countersteering. This is suitable for anyone who doesn't understand what countersteering is, or how it works. Does not include technical explanations, physics, or math.
For those who are interested, the video was made by shooting on and capturing from a JVC GR-DF430 video camera into iMovie and Final Cut Express HD 3.5. Audio was recorded in Soundtrack 1.5, and video was fit to the voiceover track in FCE. The video is compressed with H.264 compression, and the final Quicktime is just over 24 MB.
How NOT to Take a Corner on a Motorcycle
Sometimes I just chat about something off the top of my head and people

Cheshire Police unmarked video Motorcycle 1993

Tight Turns and Counter Steering
An exercise event we held to help with tight turns and counter steering. At
one point you will see "the shackle" maneuver where we switch positions
simultaneously. Music is Eric Clapton's "Forever Man"
Another in our series of tips for beginners - Countersteering explained.
i try to explain counter-steering to the best of my ability... its a very
hard topic but i think i described it in a pretty good way! hope it makes
sense to you!
This video demonstrates and explains very low-speed countersteering. It
was produced as part of an article on countersteering, which can be found
Counter Steering - How to Ride a Motorbike - Part 3
It's a lot easier to understand when you see it being done. And yes, the
ONLY way to turn a bike is to Counter-Steer.

This video demonstrates the concept of countersteering. Many new riders
have problems understanding just how pressing against the handgrip in the
direction you want to go can actually cause a motorcycle to turn or move.
It seems very confusing, especially since the first action of pressing
causes the front tire to turn slightly AWAY from where you want to go.
I threw this together to try and show just what this press does and why
doing it right is important
