Default I've always wondered...

Why, on bicycles, is the front brake lever nearly always on the left side?

On motorcycles and scooters since the earliest days the front brake lever has always been on the right.

I'm asking this since on the next couple of builds I plan on going with a front brake (something none of my three builds have had, I shamefully admit).

Since I ride all types of two wheeled contrivances I'm putting the front brake levers on the right on these next bikes.
