Bike tracking left when hands off handlebars
I noticed recently that my bike was tracking slightly left when my hands are off the handlebars (just for a few seconds, to adjust gloves or stretch out hands etc, not for showing off). I wonder if this is just due to the camber of the roads? (in Thailand, we ride on the left hand side, like in the UK and Aus).
I did drop my bike once on the right, from 1 km/h (rookie, front brake error). Could this have twisted or bent the forks in any way? To compensate and offset any twists, I dropped it on the left side from 0 km/h by not fully deploying the side stand.
