D'oh! I totally wrote that backward, by accident! sorry about the confusion. Yes, you push on the right handlebar to go to the right. The way I wrote it is the way that seems to make sense. For it to be "countersteering" is has to be the opposite of what you think!

It doesn't work the same way on a unicycle, especially if you have normal unicycle handlebars.
