When riding a motorcycle and initiating a turn, you actually start the turn in the opposite direction. To turn left for instance you push forward on your left handlebar and pull back on your right one. Once in the turn normal steering logic returns. What actually is happening is that you need to lean in the direction of the turn you will be making and the countersteering accomplishes that. We all do this many times a day, but probably most riders aren't even aware they are doing it. It's just like other things we do on the TW or other bikes that we don't even think about consciously(i.e. for me not noticing the TW clutch engagement point until there was a discussion about how far out it was).
