Favorite direction to corner?

I was wondering if anyone had a favorite direction to corner. I seem to take left hand corners like a champ. Got about 1/4" chicken strip left on the left side, but the right side I have troubles leaning as far over.


Anyone else have this problem. Or know how to cure it haha

Re: Favorite direction to corner?

Left is pretty common, because when people lean right they have trouble modulating the throttle. I know right handers are a little more awkward for me.. but that's just something else to work on.


I like left turns.

Re: Favorite direction to corner?

Ok good. I thought I was just a failure. (still very much possible haha). My chicken strip on the right side is like 1/2" - 3/4". I Just hate looking at it lol.

Should there be a LITTLE chicken strip on the sides yet, or do the good riders not have any at all?

I hate those turns where you go straight. I love the left and the right turns though.

Stop looking at your chicken strips. They don't give you any indication of your skill (or lack thereof).

Re: Favorite direction to corner?

I like lefts, but I"mI actually find it easier to handle the throttle when going right (smoother).... maybe because I'm restricted in the ability to make sudden/choppy adjustments like I can when going left (even if i dont mean to).
