Countersteering reproved and Gyroscopic stability refuted (maybe)

I bring this up because when I first rode, I didn’t understand the importance of leaning with the bike and being a good passenger.

Agreed, countersteer to “initiate” lean.  My understanding is, once in the turn you should not have pressure on the bars.  If you have pressure on the bars, after “initiating” lean, then your center of gravity may not be correct.  I.E. you may be a bad passenger.  Also, while in the right-hand turn, the tire is turned into the turn.

This assumes nothing wrong with the bike.  No low tire pressure in the front tire, bent parts, etc.
