A quick question for Andyvh1959, "can we counter-steer when the steering is at full-lock?"

Traditionally we are taught that to steer the bike we have to turn the handlebars in the direction opposite to that which we want to turn. If the bars are at full-lock in a left turn then we are prevented from turning them any further so that we can initiate a right turn.

Full-lock is a quite normal situation in Moto Gymkhana so how are we able to transition so easily from full lock in one direction to full lock in the other without the ability to counter steer?
