Should learners begin on a heavier or lighter bike? This question has been bothering me ever since the purchase of my first non-learner bike, an 1100 cruiser, which taught me how to counter steer. Before then, I just sort of wrestled my lightweight bike around corners, the same way I did with my bicycle for many years before. I know, I was counter steering, but it didn't feel that way to me. It was only when I got on a bike significantly heavier then me that I really understood that I didn't need to wrestle with it. Note, I am not talking about power, just weight. Any thoughts?
