When the stabilization wheels are down your bike will handle like a trike – you have to steer or move the handlebars in the direction you want to go. This is referred to as “Trike Mode”. When the wheels are up your bike will handle the way you are used to, leaning to turn, counter steering, etc. This is referred to as “Bike Mode”.
