Balance and practice. If your circle is to the left scoot your butt to the right of the seat, maintain enough speed to keep yourself upright and looking in to where the center of the circle would be start a tight slow turn. The trick is to keep your speed and sharpness of turn constant until you are ready to straighten out.

Know your bike, know your clutch. With practice, on the right bike, you could do a figure of eight in a parking space. On a narrow street or a parking lot, practice walking your bike through turns. If you can walk it round, you can ride it round. Then it's as above. Check all around that you are clear to turn. Set your front wheel and shift your body weight until your inside arm is nearly straight (makes sure you have shifted far enough and leaves some movement for fine correction), look as far round the turn as you can (you will naturally steer where you look so don't look at the curb or drain covers). Revs up, slip the clutchand use the back brake to control the speed. Do not touch the front brake under any circumstances.
