While driving, do you turn right or left better?

I find myself going more aggressive turning right, must be the extra vision available..


Single seater cars do not apply..:)


EDIT:: not sure if this matters but I'm left handed..

Turning left is a little easier.

Right arm (tennis arm) over left arm.

But in my Lotus?

Any turning is GREAT! :bow:

For driving, it's all the same to me. For parking, definitely turning right is easier for me :shrug:

Common issue with novice motorcyclists transitioning to the track as well - they get used to making tighter turns on the street (in the States anyway) to the right.

Right turns are better for me. My much shorter left arm/hand is nearly useless, so my normal right arm/hand does almost all the work of steering!
For me, it's first nature.
Try driving on the track, shifting and steering with your right arm/hand only! Try it! :crazyeyes

I must be crazy...
yep.
I'm crazy.

Right turns can be harder, especially when you first start riding... You know, pinching your hand between the tank and the throttle in a U turn... Oh right. In a car. It's all the same in my pickup, but left turns are wider usually, and thus easier for not running over the inside curb with the back tires. Not that I do this, I just see it a lot. Makes me laugh. :)
