Re: turning right...why does it seem harder??

The explanation I've heard is that your body naturally wants to protect its dominant side. Since most people are right-handed, that's the right side. Since a motorcycle turns by leaning, leaning right is harder to convince one's body to do, for most people.

For me, I'm right-handed but left-eyed. I turn easier to the right, go figure.
