    My Girlfriend ask me the same ?............
    Why do I always mount and dismount from the left side.
    Guess the only answer is.
    That is the side you normally get on and off a horse...........
    Learned that way back when I was a kid.
    VERY rarely use the right side.

    On the left, usually. But if there's something on the immediate right-hand side that I need to attend to, I'll dismount on that side. Gotta watch the FEL controls, though.

    Maybe the more pertinent question would be "Which side do you fall off from...?"

    Were mounting/dismounting from the right side an option, I would surely use either depending on the situation. Personal bulk aside, this appears to be a decision/practice that is mostly determined by the *equipment's* setup.

    Durn! When I was a younster my cowboy buddies always made fun of me for not knowing which side of a horse to mount. Most of the horses I was allowed to ride were to old and slow to care anyway. Now I find out there is a right and wrong on a tractor. Now I'll have to look to see if anyone is watching when I get on a tractor. I just always went for the easiest and closest.
