Reading an article about why racers are all hanging the leg out as they turn in, a habit started by Rossi. Article says no one knows why it works it just feels good. Well it seems to me that counter steering only works with 2 wheels on the ground. The effect of the counter steering makes the bike fall opposite of the direction the bars are turned because the bike is balanced on the 2 wheels. Under hard breaking the rear wheel is lightened or off the ground completely, minimizing or eliminating the effect of counter steering. The bike essentially becomes a unicycle for a few seconds. So hanging a leg out moves the bike+rider CG to the turn-in side of the bike helping to start turning the bike. Just a thought.
