NO one experiences this!

Not true.

Even at very slow speed a counter steer (however slight) is engaged or you would tip over to the outside.

You can lean the bike and start off from a stop with the front tire turned in the direction of the turn... BUT if you are moving EVEN SLOWLY a counter steer is engaged in some fashion.
