A brake to start a slide ?..Bro..ya gotta PITCH that thing into the turn...desmo079 said:Left because I grew up riding dirt bikes with the brake on the right side. So, when I went into a left turn I could use the brake to set up the slide. On right turns, my rt. foot had to be put down for the turn, so I couldn't slide as deep into rt. turns. Back then I was on a 125 and didn't have enough thrust to bring the rear around with just throttle.
Funny I figured rigth hand drivers would prefer right turns... because your right turns would almost always be wide turns... as with our left turns here in the States...naefearjustbeer said:I allways prefer a nice left hander (I ride on the opposite side of the road than most of you) I had a bad crash involving a right hand turn early in my biking life and seem to have a mental block about commiting to right handers.

Why would you be putting more pressure on the throttle..? if that's what your doing, you need to RELAX your grip some..Gixxerdude said:I would definetly have to say lefties. I believe it's because when im far over on a righty im putting more pressure on the gas, therefore making it more of a balancing act with the throttle.
