  3. U-Turn From a Stop

    General MC Message Board
    It's not a Wing, but watch how this touring rider initiates his U-turns with a sharp counter steering movement FROM A STOP! Also, it looks to me like he locks his vision on the center of the turn, the point he pivots AROUND, rather than where he wants to end up. You won't learn these...
