definetely left handers because you can see the left lane instead of the woods.

I also prefer left turns. Since my MSF course I have always been a little skeeved by right turns (although I've gotten much better this summer). The MSF instructor said the body is naturally protective of the right side. Why????

I like both, but for some reason the hint of danger asssociated with the on coming
traffic of a left turn forces me to be on my game. And I like that added pressure.

I like both, I'm ambidextrous if that has anything to do with it.

I like right handers, cages tend to run wide, and I have to keep to the right side of my lane near the shoulder in a left hand turn.

I'm on the other side of the road to you guys. I'm right-handed and right-footed. I prefer left-hand corners. It's the same when I'm water-skiing too, even on one ski.

I'm sure there's a physiological explanation for it.

In God, we trust; all others must provide data.

i prefer right handers just for the fact it's hard for me to get use to leaning into traffic.
