Go on utube and check out a guy that goes by "motojitsu". Watch his slow speed training videos. He is very good and explains alot on the hows and whys of slow speed riding. I have been riding for almost 60 years and have recently been having trouble with slow speeds. A lot of it has to do with the heavy bike I got 3 years ago until I traded to something lighter. Also a lot of trouble came from lack of low speed riding skills that I really didn't need so much on former lighter bikes. Motojitsu's videos helped me a lot with developing my low speed riding skills. I had lost my confidence somewhat but with practicing slow speed riding and following his advice I am fine now.

I just looked up the specs on your bike. That bike is going to be a bit tough to handle at slow speeds to start with due to it's weight, wheelbase and especially the headstock angle. It is similar to the bike I had. It will take good slow speed skills to handle it at slow speeds. It should be very stable at speed though but a bit lazy at tighter turns. Good luck.

When I moved to Cali in 1986 they made me take MC written test when I was applying for a Class 1 license. I flunked it big time. There was so much that I disagreed with. At that point I had been riding for 30 years. I had to take the test again a couple of years ago due to my age. Based on my previous experience I got the manual and studied it throughly. I found everything in it to quite good with few exceptions. It had been completely revised obviously with biker input.
