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 :rolleyes:

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.

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?

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

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).

Right is quite a bit easier for me. Left feels awkward

My body position in to left handers is better so i need less lean. On the right the bike is leaned over more do to my body position. But, it looks far better than it was a year to two years ago. Not all crossed up anymore :flex:

My cerebellum likes left hand turns better. Maybe bc my penis bends that way too hahahaha. Try working your cerebellum like balancing something in your right hand (pole stick, bat...)

I actually like right turns and I am right handed. Idk why? Maybe because my pimp hand is strong...which is the right.

Obviously there is some correlation on the average on handedness and comfort turning in a direction,

Seems like im more comfy turning left, but right isnt bad

Used to be left turns when I used to motocross but now on my track bike it is right turns.
