this may seem like a stupid question , but never the less it is a question im looking for an answer to. when turning, left for example, the bike is leaned to the left. For more lean do you push on the left handle or right?

My initial reaction was (to quote Booker T): "Tell me you didn't just say that". However, counter-steering is, at first, couter-intuitive. You push on the "inside" bar to turn in that direction. Push on the left bar to turn left (or pull on the right). I am assuming you are really asking about turning rather than leaning since the bike leans *beause* it is turning. Pushing on the left bar actually moves the wheel more in the turned right direction (counter-steering) which increases the left lean and turn rate. Keith Code's Twist of the Wrist also has a pretty good explanation on this.
