Well said. Hanging off is a body position technique used to help REDUCE overall lean angle. By hanging off you are able to keep the bike more upright which reduces lean angle and provides more traction. It is not a steering technique. The only way to steer a motorcycle at speeds above 15-20mph'ish is to counter-steer. Counter-steering simply means if you want to right you PUSH ON THE RIGHT BAR (or pull on the left) but for simplicity sake, you push right to go right and you push left to go left.You use the same general technique on all bikes. Hanging off decreases the lean angle required to make the turn. LOOK where you want to go, not at your gauges, not at your bike, especially not at the ground. Counter steer through the corner. To anyone who says they don't counter steer, if you ride your bike above 20mph and make corners, yes you do. It's literally impossible to turn at speed without counter steering. The "I just lean it in bro" is bullshit. Whether you know it or not, you're counter steering. This is elementary stuff dude, every person on 2 wheels should know this by now. You should be doing this all the time, no matter what bike you're riding. You may not HAVE to hang off, but all you're doing by not hanging off is increasing your risk.
Now where is where riders often make mistakes.....how LONG do you have to keep pressure on the handlebar? Do you counter-steer all the way through the corner? (Hold bar pressure all the way through the turn) or do you press on the bar to initiate steering and then release the pressure on the bar?
