Parking Lot Maneuvers

by Tracy
(Cedar Point, NC)

Twisting and turning at slow speeds in parking lots is a lot easier (I have found) if you slide up closer to the tank. The one time I dropped my bike was in a parking lot, just managed to bend (customize) my clutch handle. I think it is much easier riding at high speeds.

Thanks for the tip, since my posting I have become better at feathering the clutch, which I found is essential in slow tight turns. Take care!

It will be a lot easier if you feather your clutch and use only your rear brake too. You'll probably need to throttle up some to get those RPMs up there so the bike will still have some movement to it.
