Yes, when you lock the steering to the point where you can't countersteer, then yes, you must control the lean angle with throttle, brake and clutch. The fact that it is more difficult to maintain full lock turns, than near full lock turns, shows that countersteering is a much more effective method of controlling lean angle than using the throttle clutch and brake alone.
People talk in terms of absolutes when addressing countersteering. The videos blow a hole in the absolute portion of the argument. I maintain it becomes efficient at some very low MPH...
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.
