Shuffle steering or hand over hand

So, I'd seen some mention of shuffle steering before along with some discussion of it's merit. Like most, at least in the US, I usually use hand over hand. I saw a PDF online the other day put out by, I think the PCA, that seemed to promote shuffle steering. It made me think.

So, do you use shuffle steering or hand over hand (assuming your can't get enough steering without having to move your hands at all).

On the road? Depends on the situation.

On the track, I try and break my students of the shuffle steering habit.

Hand over hand. I used to shuffle, then did A/X.

I use hand, knee, hand. That way I don't need to stop rolling the cigarette.

Early 911 driver and motorcycle rider (they are quite similar...) - I countersteer and gas it. Hard. Never let go...

That's assuming that you can get enough steering angle out of the wheel without letting go, right? What if you need more angle. Our arms will only allow so much steering without something having to give.

If you let it get that far, you're off in the grass anyway. Shufflin' ain't gonna help. In the car, and especially not on the bike.

If driving the DD's with power steering, I do hand-over-hand while navigating the parking lot. Shuffle if on the road where airbag deployment is a possibility. In the 911, almost always shuffle.

I try to keep hands at the same height (usually 9 & 3, thumbs not hooked).
