Haha indexed steering.
I imagine that you just adjusted it too tight, and when you ride you lean, and it resists moving back because is it too tight, and 'stuck' kind of.
When you adjust it (with the hex bolt at the top of the steerer as you probably know [that is assuming it's threadless]) tighten it until there is no play - ie. movement of the fork inside the headtube when you hold the front brake and move the handlebars back and forth - while still moving freely - ie. when you lift up the front of the bike by the toptube (not the handlebars) the handlebar/fork/wheel etc. should be able to turn to one side or the other freely.
[edit:] if the steering seems indexed then perhaps you overtightened your headset enough to pit the bearing races. Does it have notches/a notch in which the steering stays, kind of? It's hard to explain.
