For higher-capacity members: Keep having fun dwelling on mechanical enantiomorphism reasons, but consider that maybe the Rider’s likely proclivity for crural dexterity is the basis.
For members with 50cc brains like mine: Watch football on TV. Notice goal kickers are predominantly right-footed. Put kick start on right side. Put drive train on much-easier-to-design other side.
Damn! It has happened again! I will have to jump on the bike and cool my head down with some wind.
