when you turn your controller left, the front wheel turns right-when the front wheel turns right the bike leans to the left and turns left. like riding a real motorcycle at high speed, lean left---turn front wheel slightly right---bike turns left.

well there's a lot to it.... once the bike is rolling at speed the gyroscopic action of the wheels keeps the bike up.... at speed, the steering has to be reversed in order to induce lean... you're moving the front tire contact patch in one direction to cause the bike to "fall" over to the other side...... once the bike has "fallen" over into a lean then you use throttle control to make your turn smaller or larger.... it's almost like standing on a carpet... and someone pulls it out from under you... you fall in the opposite direction... someone pulls the carpet right... you fall to the left

I suspected someone was pulling the carpet when I came home from the pub and kept falling over,I thought I might have imbibed a little too much,but someone pulling the carpet makes more sense.

Just wait until I catch the bugger,he's for it then.

Wait a minute......we haven't got any carpets.

We should have a FAQ sticky to cover this.
