Thumbs up What's your lean side?

Honestly just wondering about other people's lean side. Mostly related to street twisties. From the looks of my tire, and the feel of my 636, I feel more comfortable leaning to my right, but I am left handed. So do you like the lean to your mostly used hand? Or not.. Post your lean side!

Maybe it's because I recently started hitting twisties. Well, a month or so now. But I was just curious.

I'm right handed but feel more comfortable leaning left. I think its b/c going through intersections i get low makin left hand turns but makin a right hand turn is so tight i cant really lean right. I just get more experience goin left b/c of that.

It is true that you will turn better to your non dominant side. Works in all speed related sports. ie: skating, surfing, skiing, and bikes. I think it is an underlying form of self preservation, where your brain tells your body that you really need that hand to work, and write the checks.

I think I worry more about lefties, as I'm pretty conscious of oncoming traffic. I need more track school.
