This video explains and demonstrates how to u-turn any motorcycle and the top tips/tricks I learned over the years. This works on any motorcycle you ride. Learn to use the clutch, have proper vision, and use your body to help balance the bike.

      I think slow turning should be part of drivers license road test. Btw I would have failed lol

      Ironically when I sold it a few weeks ago...with 40k miles...it didn't have any issues with the clutch. Just go practice.

      Did a driving school teach you to take slow u-turns this way? I have always learned to control speed in slow turns with the rear brake, steady throttle and no clutching. With your instructions by leaning, weight shifting, throttling and clutching you are doing all the hard work which the bike should do. If you control the speed with the rear brake you can make even tighter u-turns without even touching the handlebars and in a upright position. U-turns, figure 8 and other slow driving techniques are part of driving exam in my country and all is done by rear brake controll.

      Sure doesn't...I have a playlist of me riding 35+ different bikes to prove it.

      It doesn't matter what bike you're on as long as you master the technique.

      Watch more of my videos...then re-read what you just wrote. I have an entire playlist all about slow speed turns and another video all about u-turns. Can you do a 16ft u-turn on any bike? If not, go practice. Here's me doing a u-turn with the bike off.

      One way but not the most efficient way. Let the bike do the hard work. This technique might be easier to learn for beginners but in the long term is better to start doing it right from the start. Check out the Japanese police motorcycle course.

      This is one way to do u-turns. Use the rear brake if you want...I do too. Just go practice until you can do 16ft u-turns on anything bike...until then, get off Yotube and go practice.

      I just bought my bike last monday, I can't do a u-turn without walking the bike, but today I am now able to do it a few times after watching your vid, but my clutch is almost close to turning off the engine ,

      Thanks good video, but u camera man must learn too use the zoom when u are little far ok. Show us more, and I wonder, they who come with speed and use the brake too turn bike 190 degrees, is not danger that the bike fall on other side ?

      I have an entire playlist all about low-speed turning...go practice and learn how to do it yourself...watching a video with every camera angle you can imagine won't make you 1 second better unless you go out and practice.

      I suggest you get an old beater bike,something you don't care about to drop.
      I wouldn't practice with a new,expensive bike you care too much about.
      We had an old ninja 500,dirt cheap, that wasn't even registered that we practiced on behind the building.
      Just saying.

      This technique also works for making a tight right hand turn of 90 degrees or less while leaving a stop sign so you stay in your lane.

      Had my first days training on a 650cc Honda yesterday towards my UK bike test, felt I really benefited from having watched this and others of your videos first. Nice suppliment to the things my instructor was saying, helped me quickly gain confidence in U turns, slalom and braking drills. Thank you Eddie, keep it going.
