Countersteering
Countersteering is the technique used by single-track vehicle operators, such as cyclists and motorcyclists, to initiate a turn toward a given direction by momentarily steering counter to the desired direction ("steer left to turn right"). A more accurate term is deliberate countersteering when employed by a rider, though it is often shortened to just countersteering. To negotiate a turn successfully, the combined center of mass of the rider and the single-track vehicle must first be leaned in the direction of the turn, and steering briefly in the opposite direction causes that lean. This technique does not apply to conventional multiple-tracked vehicles such as trikes or sidecar-equipped bicycles and motorcycles.

Counter steering VS body lean
I was on another site this morning and someone pointed to Kieth Codes web site about his new DVD Twist of the Throttle II. I went and watched the trailer to the DVD. In it he has the bike he put solid bars on with the regular bars. In the video they show by using the solid bars and just body lean and putting weight on the inside peg makes the bike do. Actually what it doesn't do like turn. There are other tips in just the trailer that is good info. For those that are "seeing is believing" types
