You need to look further to the right, to get the left eye to see where you want to go - try it.

I must be the lucky one then, brcause I am right eye dominant. I think the reason has more to do with the fact that you are controling the throtle and inputs to the direction including corrections.

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

I think that some folks have problems with right handed turns is the throttle,and maybe also that they are somewhat close to the ground as in the case of the guys with clip ons.I know that when I have ridden bikes with tall handlebars I did not have a problem.When I rode with clip ons the same corners scared the heck out of me.I found relaxing and being in tune with the machine and not riding above ones own abilities works best.Slow down relax and enjoy............kinda like getting laid.

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

With me it has nothing to do with the throttle! I notice the same thing when I'm on the slopes skiing and boarding, and on my Mt. Bike. Shit I even feel uneasy drifting the Jeep on dirt mountain roads going into right hand turns! I have know idea what the hell is wrong with me!!! Maybe my Mom dropped me on my right side or something when I was a baby !!!

Untrue. Cameras are set up the way they are because most people are right handed and right eyed.

Au contrair! I'm right handed and shoot with my left eye. Always have. Your probably right, i may be the exception rather than the rule. I am very left eye dominate. I may be better at right handers, because i dont have the same sense of dread of face planting into an oncomming car headlight I do when making left handed turns.

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

Handedness and eye dominance tend to be the same side, but not always.

Cameras, firearms, and other items that requires manipulation and sighting are generally designed so that the controls & sights use the same hand/eye pairing.

Me too, but I hate to tell you, you and I are (minor) freaks. Most people's dominant side is the same for hand, feet, and eyes. And for most it's right.

I am left handed and I find it alot easier to lean right than left. I also feel that I can achieve leaner angle on RHS.
