When you go to make a left turn on a bicycle going more than 4 or 5 mph, you push the left side of the handlebar out...this momentarily turns the wheel to the right...
this makes no sense to me at all. when i want to turn left on a bike, i do not turn the wheel to the right. i turn it to the left (left side in).
i agree with oneplankawanka - the bike analogy is, in this context, a simple one which works well.
