U-Turns From A Stop
Some roads here in north Georgia are narrower than the 20-24 feet curb to curb found on "standard" roadways. Sometimes conditions call for reversing direction and the multi-point turn, where there is a pronounced crown on the road, can be hard on the legs. I'd prefer to do a u-turn but find that from a stop I can usually turn within 16 feet, but feel tighter is possible, but the high COG has me reluctant to lean the bike way over at a stop.
What have you found to be the tightest u-turn you can make consistently, on your V-Strom, from a stop? What technique do you use?
All this assumes a u-turn CCW from the right side of the road.
