I have to say that I prefer right handers. I think a lot of it has to do with Arizona have very abrupt road edges (we use the term "pitch a cliff" a lot out here). When it's a right hander with a drop to the right, you can see the edge well as you look through the turn. When it's a left hander with a drop on the right, I tend to keep checking the edge of the road on my right instead of looking all the way through the turn. Do you think my severe fear of heights could have something to do with that?? lol.

Anyway...just my .02

Most street riders are better with left hand turns since driving in the right lane allows significantly better visability of the turn than a right hand turn allowing you to see your desired exit point and more power to be applied. There is always more security since a low side will not put you in the on-coming lane. On the track I wear out tires on the right. In the mountains, it is always the left.

Strange, but just like almost everyone else, I prefer left-handers. For some reason I feel looser and faster going through them. When I think of reasons, like the exhaust being on the right side, well, I don't really think that's it. I don't know why. Right-handers I'm just less at ease, and haven't a clue why.

For some reason I take right handers a lot better and a lot more aggressively. I don't feel natural taking lefty's. Something I'm trying to improve...

Looking at my 500 mile old tires I can see that I favor right hand turns. I always thought it had to do with being left handed?
