I've been trying to do equal amounts of parking lot training for slow ride technique on my SV relative to all my road/traffic work.
My slalom is good and my turn radius is about three parking spaces wide.
I want to improve that.
I've been working specifically on turning at full lock for about 5 sessions out now, and its still eluding me. Some of the things i've been noticing when i'm attempting this is:
- I tend to look down for some reason, though this is getting better
- the bike feels really top heavy when i'm attempting a full lock turn at idle speed or lower
- it even does this when i'm putting lots of weight on the outside peg (not as helpful as I first thought it would be)
I'm almost thinking like I need to add more speed or revs to generate more centrifugal force to stay more upright whilst getting all the tightness I can out of my turn.
That's just one of my theories. I intend to practice more, but I'd love some tips as to how I can tighten my turn radius.
