Long story short...From what I remember in the safety course, was it gives you a sharper turn but you're only suppose to use it on slows turns.. They had us doing it for figure 8's...

Yup... it's makes it easier when making a u-turn or if you're in a parking lot trying to make a sharp turn to get out. If you're making a u-turn to the left, you would move your handlebars left and put your body weight on the right side of the bike. Then, you can have the bike lean on the left while keeping it upright with the "counter-weight" on the right side. It works!!
