Why do people turn the bars to the right while parked??

I see this every now and then. I don't get it. Why would someone want to do this?

MIght be depending on the surface being parked on.. example, trying to get the bike balanced and sturday if you are parked on a hill or slope. Otherwise I dunno, maybe just to look different? Some bikes lean way over when on the kickstand. My old roommate's gsxr 750 felt like it was at a 45 degree angle when it was on the stand compared to my 10. Didn't really matter how he left his bars, it was pretty stable

I leave mine centered, unless I am going some where and need to lock the steering, then I turn them left. I just like looking at my bike when its parked and it looks cooler when the bars are strait, call me a squid or whatever, all of you want to have a nice looking bike right? By the way, I work at a garage part time and I park my bike like 15 feet away from where I am working at.

Steering lock is to the left. Turned right asks for someone to roll off with your ride.

Smoke'em if u got'em (tires)

It gives a wider footprint.

If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is.
