If you want to see what speed counter steering begins to work at try this.
Go get on your bike, and stand it up. Put the kickstand up. Now put your feet on the pegs and balance.
Why is it so hard to balance? Because counter steering doesn't work when you are stopped and shifting your weight is not a very effective way to balance.
If the bike is rolling at all and you find it easier to balance than when it was stopped, that's because countersteering works as soon as the bike begins moving.
