Dammit! Wrong again.
I had heard people say standing on the pegs lowered your cog and I could never figure that out. Thought the theory of TWO was the answer.
I stand corrected.
Weighting the pegs is another bugger to figure. The theory seems to be to weight the outside peg as you corner, but initially weighting a peg seems to pull the bike toward the weighted side. So, I've figured that to initiate the turn I weight the inside peg, then shift to the outside peg once the cornering is underway. This is all secondary to countersteering which is really what changes direction.
As craneguys suggests, it's got to be a combination of things such as the shift in body position and/or arm movement.
