I counterbalance when going around a blind corner so that I can see around the corner sooner. It's easier to pick the bike up right away if you need to do some emergency evasive maneuvering since you don't have to recentre your body, and then the bike.

That makes absolutely no sense. You need to learn how turn.

This guy is actually not moving and is falling over. He is not used to his clipless pegs yet and could not get his foot down in time.

Counterbalancing is something that Action taught me. The only time I use it is around blind corners.

Explain to me how this is wrong: When you're leaned off of the side of the bike, and you need to straighten the bike up because of an emergency, you've got to recentre your body to your bike and THEN straighten the bike out. That's TWO steps - for those who can't count.

If you're counterbalancing, you just straighten the bike underneath you since your body's already at the bike's zenith.
