    Here's a few pictures of the same guy using different styles; the NSR was the big bang engine and not the prefered screamer that Doohan liked; i was going to say engine characteristic; they only have the throttle hand as traction control on the NSR and tyre grip today is way beyond what it was years ago; this may have determined the styles; Rossi looks very Hailwood like on the NSR; but is using 2 differing styles on the bike trying to move with the times; the bottom picture he's crossed up and leading with the shoulder and arm.

Most definitely a dynamic learning excercise that has to become fluid.
    I agree in so much that when you initiate counter steering you're, automatically, putting yourself into a "cross" scenario so, presumably, you should line yourself up as one or slightly before counter steering. I think I'll just stick to counter steering and let my body go where it always goes!

    Just looking at the bottom picture at Quarter bridge; he did'nt even have the ball of his right foot on the peg; almost like feeling for a skim to find the limit.

    But should we all be using the "Doctor's Dangle" to help in slowing before a corner and aiding turn-in?
