Lawman Posted October 29, 2007 Share Posted October 29, 2007 I have no trouble whatsoever making u-turns.....as long as I have at least one sq. acre (210' x 210') of smooth, dry, clean concrete with nothing else on it.. I am most comfortable making u-turns by having enough speed going into it that all I need do is pull in the clutch and make the turn or at least enough speed to nearly complete the turn... That works fine as long as there are no distractions and the area is large enough and little chance of something interrupting me before the turn is completed. But more often I find myself needing to make very low speed u-turns..Nothing works well here for me on this bike (R1200RT)..I sure don't want to stall the bike and I don't want to feather the clutch, and that pretty much leaves the duckwalk for me and that makes me feel like an idiot... I d be interested in hearing others techniques for making u-turns..such as use of back brake, engaging and disengaging the clutch, etc... Link to comment
