Yeah it's called push steering too. Learned it in basic motorcycle class. You fly through a set of cones and a guy stands in front of you with two flags. Whichever flag he raises you have to go that way, you're dinged points if you're not going fast enough.

It's so simple once you get it. He raises his right hand, you push the left bar and the bike tilts under you and initiates the turn to the left (his right). It should become a subconscious technique very quickly in a motorcycle riding career.
