    It frustrates me that your brain has to "revert" itself constantly and does not just create an extra connection to master both ways of riding the bicycle. You have to spend time re-learning the experience it isn't "used to" anymore. Pretty interesting overall.

    This reminds me of that scientist who wore glasses with flipped lenses so everything was upside down. After a long period of time, his brain actually flipped the flipped image and he could see normal again. Then when he took them off everything was flipped
