A lot of people don’t sit centered on the seat, usually slightly to the left of center, and our roads camber to the left to a greater or lesser degree depending on the road so some pulling off to one side is possible, though you should be able to easily mitigate it by adjusting your body weight or position. It’s been so long since I’ve tried it I can’t remember which way my bike goes.

The handlebars definately shouldn’t shake when you let go though.
