(when a girl says no, it doesn't always mean no.. hehe) he must have felt bad so he came back and helped me anyway.

give me 3 lanes and i can u-turn. give me 2 lanes and i'm stuck. i've been trying to u-turn on my street in front of my house but it's not looking good. i'll start on the far right of the street.. try to make a U.. but somehow go up one driveway, along the sidewalk, and down the next driveway... yes, that's MY u-turn (hahaha.. i know you're laughing right now). I got on my cuz vulcan 750 and can u-turn on that easily, but cruisers are so much easier. any advice?


Go to a very very big vacant parking lot on a Sunday afternoon, before the time change Lowes or HomeDepot was a good spot, practice there, get down your turns. Then try them even slower and slower, work at it for days weeks and months, soon you will be comfortable enough that daily driving u-turns will be a no-brainer but more second nature.
