hey kev i was very similar to you in respct to the fear of right hand turns when I started riding. it took one afternoon to cure it for me.

how did i cure it in one afternoon you ask???






simple. go do a trackday



after my first trackday, that fear was completely over.

Thats all it takes is practice. Most people are very comfortable turning the opposite direction to whichever hand they normally use. I know I hang off my bike alot more to my left then my right (Im right handed) but I am still comfortable in either direction (there's just more hang to one side!!).

thats the thing though, im left handed, well most of the time. Im semi-ambidextrous. I'm more dominate with my left. track day would be the greatest, but need a better job. just barely getting by.

The right side is tougher because it's your throttle hand. We will hopefully be doing another cornering practice day soon. We can help
