I throw them wrong as well. I wouldn't worry about it for a while. It'd be fine anyways. I can hop truck sometimes and stuff. Except its almost like a bar and a 1/4 or bar and a half at times since you spin and throw the same direction. Some say they look ugly but i prefer it.

I leaned barspins like this 2 months ago. They are a bit tricky....

I never understood how goofy bars affected the likeliness of the bars hitting your knee, since with regular barspins, you would be likely to hit your knee quicker since you throw directly into the direction your front foot. For people who do it goofy, by the time the bars go to your front foot, the bars are already halfway around and you should technically have your knees back already. All that barspins do while being goofy are tilt the bike and throw you off axis.

I'm like you and I try to learn barspins, first learn it by throwing it clockwise (your comfortable one) so you'll be able to do in straight line, hop, fakie, into and off grinds.
But to throw it in rotation, you'll have to learn them unclockwise or spin opposite.
