I'm getting back into riding after being out for about eight years. I like the new letum but it is a lhd bike. I grind left side well still and want to learn the right side. You think it would benefit me to go ahead and get it? Just wanted some advice as I have never riden lhd. Thanks!

If you want to grind both sides you're better off going lhd, with the logic being that you're more likely to slip a peg on your unnatural side. But it's always something you could change in the future if you stay with 2 pegs, or just don't like it

Yeah that was exactly my mentality but I've heard people saying that it feels odd balance wise. Though I don't see it.

You won't really notice the difference, just having the sprocket on the other side feels a bit weird at first. I ran lhd for a while and it was quite liberating knowing I wouldn't hit my sprocket as easily. But then my sprocket was on my oppo side so I switched back to rhd

Perhaps just get a guard sprocket other than that, ya shouldnt have any problems. I grind both sides equally and have never had issues with what side drive it was on
