Maybe there are other examples of the evidence from one sense (in this case Sight) being ignored (if only in the "lean" direction) in favour of what other body systems (in this case, muscles?) are saying?

Any connection with "Leaning House" optical illusions? The Leaning Cyclist is unable to accept the visual evidence (the side view of the front wheel).

In-line with the theory of rocking on the saddle, a small leg length difference might also cause similar problems. Once someone was tired and unable to compensate then a saddle tilt to knee side would lead to a tilt to the other side. In addition if this was longstanding it could produce a permanent pelvic tilt.

One older rider on the National 24 this weekend was leaning hard to the right and having some difficulty keeping a straight line.  He stopped as soon as he reached the finishing circuit.
