I use to have the same problem when going through a turn, didn't matter if it was a sweeper or just turning right on a side street. I think I'm over it now for some reason...I think a lot of it has to do with your right hand controlling the throttle and possibly using your arms too much on the bar. I noticed a significance increase in comfortableness making right handed turns after my first trackday....and hoping my second proves to be that much more beneficial.

Listen to him, this is the best advice i've seen yet!!!! Get on the track and actually get to USE ur bike!!!!

Look at the pics, the one with the smallest angle is where you want to be, more upright in corners = more traction and speed.

I am more left hander turns, but the right one not so comfortable. If I were to be in a race and it has more right turn, I probably be last.
