is this normal?

Well this is my first time i went training downhill and when im going downhill i realise that my bike became more sensative. when i move my handle to a bit to the left i felt like im going to fell. So i was wondering, is this a normal stuff or something has gone wrong with my headset or tyres

Well, it's a real question so.......... No I'd say its completely normal. It's always harder than it looks when you see a pro do it, and feeling like your going to fall is probably a good sign. If your fast and crash a lot thats OK, you can learn not to fall, but its a lot harder to learn how to become fast. I'm not fast by any stretch, but still feel like Im about to fall going down some trails.

I love going downhill real fast. The road condition is very bad, there are practically rocks everywhere, maybe i should buy glasses to protect my eye. LOL
