VR Steering

The speeds at which I did the excersise at were about 60mph entries and 40mph exits (off throttle turn as no hands on bars)

Make of that what you will.

I wouldn't say pushbikes are a bad example. Infact I'd say it's a perfect example of the theory, as all the forces look more exaggerated so you can easily see what's going on.

But like I have said until he does this in a standard seating position, with no hands on the bars, and no run off on the side (just open) so he doesn't subconsciously stop himself turning, then I'm gonna have to go with what I was taught, and my own personal experiences.

Which can't be wrong as I experienced them lol

Surprisingly wikipedia has some interesting observations;

So it not really the lean its the torque on the chassis from your legs that initiates the required counter steering then the CoG shift can contribute a bit

Its quite interesting if you think about it in reverse; when we set up for a high speed, high lean turn we get to move our weight to the inside of the turn well before we get there to avoid upsetting things when everything is loaded to the max but the bike does not go into some crazy steering but waits until we initiate the turn at the bars, as we exit we can straighten the bike using bar input before we start to get ourselves more centred on the seat.

Ah yes, that's why he went straight into the dirt at the end  ;D  ;D
