    I learned how to make that u-turn from watching and practicing what I saw on The Ride like a Pro video by Jerry Motoman Palladino.

    Very impressive! Is he "slipping" the clutch in the tight turns and u-turns?

    Ok that brought a huge smile watching our beefy '9 sashay through those slaloms - awesome. There was something about watching the BMW do it so nimbly which made the Bully look like a BBW modelling Victoria's Secret - beautiful - and very impressive how she looked, ever so gracefully swinging that enormous mass from side to side. Fun to watch as a spectator vs. rider.

    I can do the two-stall parking lot u-turn, but I will be adding that "Giant Slalom" to my slow-maneuver days next season for sure.
    Thanks for the vid.

    EDIT: Yes, he is using the clutch for power. When executing slow speed maneuvers, the technique is to keep a relatively constant RPM and manage speed using the clutch and brake, not the throttle.

    I'm pretty sure he is using the throttle to maintain a steady higher RPM while leveraging the clutch on the edge of the friction zone. No brake should be even touched and judging by his smooth movement, that would be the case.

    Something they were teaching us in rider academy to manage big bikes under slow speed and sharp or small radius turns.

    Takes a lot off practice to do.

    Man that guy is good. I'm practicing in my local HS parking lot this weekend. I did a few weekends with my Bolt when I first got it, haven't done so on the 9 yet. I bought a 20 pack of 3" mini cones on the cheap, time for some parking action

    I took the Ride Like A Pro course in Houston a few years ago. We were taught use the throttle to maintain a steady higher RPM while keeping the clutch in the friction zone, and ride the REAR brake to manage our speed, including coming to a complete stop without taking our feet off the pegs.

    It was well worth the money...but even watching Jerry's Ride Like a Pro YouTube videos is a good thing.

    and you need to continually practice!
