i noticed during the basic rider coarse in ct they didn't talk about counter balancing in slow turns , maybe because the bikes were little 250 cc rebels. but with your 650 it will really help as will slightly dragging the rear brake. main thing is to keep your head up and look were you want to go, not were the bike is going.( look down go down ) your bike won't handle at all like the test bikes but you'll get used it in no time just go easy and good luck.
dumb bikers don't get to be old bikers
