I will admit that when I started riding motorcycles as a teenager, my "intuitive" sense was "pull the handlebar toward me to turn the opposite direction", and I still do that, although I push and pull, since the whole concept of "countersteering" has come to vogue.

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