I entirely agree with this.

That said, for this specific example, I think turning your body/shoulders to be at right angles to the direction you is the key bit, i.e. you face it with your entire upper body (not just your head or eyes). It is the active twisting of your upper body and the rest of your body and uni naturally following that seem to be causing the turn from my perspective. I could be wrong but that is how I have always interpreted it.

If that doesn't work for people, then yeah… just keep riding/practicing and it will eventually just happen
