Just because you're right foot forward, doesn't mean you will grind on the right. You'll probably need to ride a friend's bike & see which side you feel better hopping onto, or do you have a bike now? Try hopping onto a ledge from the side & see which way you feel better hopping on.

Also, do you need a new bike or just need LHD? Because you can get LHD or switchable hubs

Any bike can be switched, but you need LHD compatible cranks and rear hub. If you are buying a new complete and you know you will grind on the right then definitely look for one that is LHD.

If you are still new and are unsure, just grab a drive side hub guard and you will be ok to grind on the right side of your bike. You may break a chain or a sprocket, but if you do then you can upgrade those parts and get something stronger.

Start by getting a drive side hub guard if you are doing any grinds on the right side. Seriously. One good impact to your driver can turn your bike in to a fix gear. dizzy

What bike do you have now? And what price range do you have for a new bike? There's quite a few companies offering LHD option bikes now

how often do you grind the only reason you go to the left is because you grind the right and want to save chains and sprocket

ride or die
