There’s an interesting thing about steering and balancing bikes that many don’t realise. At speeds above (about) walking pace, the steering actions are already opposite to what your intuition may tell you. At speed, try GENTLY pushing forward on the right-hand bar. Surprisingly to many, your bike will turn right. It’s called counter-steering and is the way two-wheeled vehicles balance and turn at speed. It’s a thing to concentrate on when turning hard - push the inside bar to tighten the turn.

At very slow speeds, the steering is more “normal” in that you turn the bars on the direction you want to turn. The cool thing is that people make the transition between normal steering and counter-steering without even thinking about it.
