Counter-steering occurs ONLY during turn initiation. When you go to make a left turn on a bicycle going more than 4 or 5 mph, you push the left side of the handlebar out...this momentarily turns the wheel to the right and cause the bike to sort of collapse into a lean for a left turn. Similar to the front wheel sort of tripping over itself.
