    Yep, I knew about that one. Elton's got a bottle, but it didn't knock my socks off when I sniffed it.


    No joke. iirc, the original premise was that it would be delivered to you via Bentley. Now it's just $12.95 shipping. :laugh:

    Only problem is the dry asphalt, bit of saliva for lube at the least.

    I like how you ignored the entire rest of the article to focus on the cartoon that agreed with you. And even then, it doesn't because it has the little bit that says "countersteer left," it's just not obvious on the trajectory they drew.

    The cartoon literally right above that one, just for lulz

    Durrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    guys, what the hell? You all drive strange. I see a left turn, I swing the wheel left. I see a right turn, I swing the wheel right. I see a policeman, I put the beer down.

    DUUUURRRR.

    You counter steer after initiating the lean (otherwise fall on your ass). So the drawing you posted shows the track "after" initiating the turn. Entry/Turn in/Counter-steer in that order. Or the way you think it goes Counter steer/Fall on ass. There is no need to "swing out".

    Get on a bike and try it, I do it about 50 times a day. Also in the context of the discussion above the turn is across traffic which generally would be a low speed turn where counter-steer is negligible or non-existent.

    My dream last night: my girlfriend was showing me some weird TV documentary about a Playboy playmate. I declared that her face was ugly and said, "She looks like Ian Ziering from 90210." And my gf corrected my pronunciation: "Eye-an Ziering." Then the documentary was about how the playmate was raised in a household of female Mennonites. I said that looked horrific but my gf said that it seemed like a pleasant way to grow up.

    :puzzled:
