That's the conclusion of those who ride Keith Code's "No Body Steering Bike" affectionately referred to as the "No BS Bike".

An article in Popular Mechanics reports that Code, who is the founder of the California Superbike School, mounted a special set of handle bars to a ZX 6R Kawasaki, to prove that body leaning does not cause a bike to turn:

More than 100 riders have tested their body steering/leaning methods on the No B.S. Bike, and all have come away with the irrefutable conclusion: Body steering and leaning does not steer a motorcycle. Steering alone turns a bike.
Not having ridden the BS Bike, I can't really say for sure. But I've found that I have better control of the bike when I do lean into a turn, as opposed to trying to keep my body straight up.

  1. What the no BS bike proves via a scientific method is that you cannot steer a bike with body movement alone (bike engine at a constant speed, no brakes, no clutch, and both hands on the bars). The only effective way to steer your bike is with proper handlebar steering technique.

    As you say, everything else helps you steer, but full control is on the handle bars.
