I watched this at my VTXOA forums, and after watching it I knew that I wouldn't be able without the practice time he took.
I have logged a lot of miles on the back of a motorcycle. I am so very used to counter steering, push bar left to go left and same for right. I know this would be a crash, bang for me.

Naw...the vid was really interesting though. I took a class on psychology my first semester and it was full of interesting stuff like that.

I feel like if you give me a couple days with that bike I could learn it. What's my level of confidence on that you say? Between confident and not confident at all.

Sure.... just not anyplace where there is traffic.
Not just hop on and go.....
I'd probably need some time to unlearn some stuff.

I would never be able to ride it through town with the possibility of having to react to a panic situation. Get my butt run over real quick....

Give me a few months, and I'll be able to do it...



I think this kind of thing is like writing with my left hand... I just have to train it.

Nope. Can't ride that. I don't use inverted mouse controls.

Maybe. I ride a motorcycle so I'm pretty used to pulling on the left handle to steer right, vice versa.

it seems hard but maybe for people like me who didnt grow up riding bikes can do it because it's not like something u learned thats really engraved into your brain like the abc's eh just a thought

No way, just watching the video made my brain feel fuzzy.

You have to invert C stick from early game to handle that, otherwise no.

Never tried one so I don't know what would it feels like. Anyway, sometimes, to challenge oneself in videogames, I invert the viewing axis of the character's perspective.
