When your out riding and taking the twistys, what side do you favor more then the other. Meaning what side can you lean harder on. I can lean to both pretty well but right side harder then the left. :)

I am the opposite of that. I too am right handed but favor the right. I used to favor the left a few years ago but now all of a sudden, I prefer right. O well. As long as it is twisting, I am good. :D

It's funny you mention it. I have always talked about this theory! I use to go over more on my left but once I identified that I started to lean over more on my right than ever before.

I don't favor either side when turning and I have low sided the R6 on both sides this year to prove that theory.. lol.. Although I lean about the same on both side I do have to say that low siding it on the right side was much smoother than the left. Somehow I f*cked up my right leg both times though. My damn knee still hurts from that last one.

Oh yeah and I am left handed so although I am intellectual superior to all of you somehow I have to deal with all this right handed bs that they make seeing as the masses are predominately right handed. This is why left handers die sooner because of stress of dealing with right handed scissors, right handed this and that - :cursin:

So with that in mind - I can golf either way. I bat better right handed but I can bat fairly well left. I shoot guns left. Here is the best one - I shoot a right handed bow left handed. Figure that one? I was given a bow by my Uncle, a right hander, at a young age and just started shooting it the way I thought it should be and I still do today with my Bear. Of course the guys in the archery shop thought I was crazy. That is until I took his $50 in a shooting contest on the 3D range. lol..

Back to the left-right thing, I scrape my left foot more than the right, so I must lean more on my left side. I think it's because my left hand is just pushing on the bar, while my right hand has to do the throttle and prepare to brake. :smash:

yup..i feel more comfortable, leaning to the left as of now atleast, since my right hand is doing the throttle and keeping me more incontrol..inspires more confidence on the left for me. gotta work on that right thing thought too :rolleyes:

Maybe you should tuck that left foot in a bit more so you don't scrape it anymore. :lol:

I am the opposite on this about the throttle. Maybe this is why I favor the right side more then the left. As I am coming in to a nice right turn such as getting on or off a ramp, I pull the throttle more and just hug it as I fly through it. Sometimes I feel myself letting off the throttle due to leaning to the inside to much. O well, they just need to make them sharper turns for us is all. :D
