Lion BR and Fajita Dave are both correct. As Dave said, you are ALWAYS turning the front wheel in the direction of the turn - WHILE IN A TURN. You turn the wheel the opposite direction to INITIATE THE TURN via countersteering.

So in a turn, you may correct the radius of the turn/lean angle with additional countersteering inputs. So technically in a turn you are doing both... turning the wheel in the direction of the turn and countersteering to provide additional inputs as needed.

Tail of the Dragon at Deal's Gap... Avoid it now, do a trackday.

Do not do business with Myrtle West Cycle... Not a reputable vendor by a long shot.
