Slow turns

Going back to my MSF course basics, I find myself doing more slow speed turns. If you truly want to learn balance on the bike, practice this. I remember it being really easy on my 250, but this 1500 is a bit of a hand full at times.

I have found that because I have recently started up doing my slow turns again, my low speed stability, especially when parking, has improved drastically.

Just a little reminder to keep at the basics!

Yeah!! Parking lot practice really helps! Especially noticeable when I split lanes on tight bridges such as Bay Bridge or Golden Gate.

Always practice!! What would you say are the most important factors in getting good at slow speed turns? What makes some people good at them and others not so much?

My oldest son, who works in the cycle industry as an Engineer, recently took the week-long Police Motorcycle Training Course on full dresser HDs.

He said he had never ridden so slow and turned so tight in his life, and he's been riding since he was 4. The police bikes weigh almost twice what he normally rides.

He felt pretty good about what he learned, and was able to do full 360s at a walking pace pretty easily by the end of the week.
