The bike is now underneath me again and I am balanced. It's the same if you are balancing a broom upside down on your finger. When the top of the broom moves in a direction and starts to topple, you move your finger in the same direction underneath it. That way your finger (the bike) stays underneath the center of gravity.
I like this explanation. If you're moving forward very slowly, the correction you get from turning the wheel acts slowly too - it takes much longer for the bike to move back under the CG.
Which <sigh> means you shouldn't have any trouble riding on a treadmill
What is it about treadmills and this place?
