Yup. Here is an example of what can happen if you are unfamiliar with counter-steering on a bigger bike. [video=youtube;WjYmJVo6gRM]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjYmJVo6gRM[/video] And here is an example of what I mean by poor throttle control. Basically what happens is that the bike accelerates faster than you expect so you grip the handlebar tighter to stay on the bike. However, the acceleration pushes you backwards, forcing you to open the throttle and accelerate even more. The more the bike accelerates is the more it makes you open the throttle and the following happens.

This video was funny, but image it happening to you by an intersection at a red light.
