I found this article interesting. I've been riding quite a few years but after watching the video with the japanese police throwing their bikes around I've decided to learn to do a uturn as fast as they are doing them in the video.

After watching the video and then reading this article, I'm still confused. I've seen the CHP practice on their Harley's and they ride like the article says in slow speed short radius turns. They sit on the outside of the bike and lean it steep into the turn. I guess because the Japanese police were accelerating all of the way through the uturn that they didn't have to counterbalance the bike? Am I on the right track here?
