Ok. I just came back for another ride where I practiced solely doing the u turn. I've been riding to work every day this week and I feel I do it ok. But the u turn is killing me! Today, after finding a quite spot, I managed to do a few turns, keeping the clutch on, accelerating a bit and controlling the speed with the rear break but then it had to happen...I ended up falling with the bike and my leg underneath, nothing major, just extremely frustrated.
Don't feel I have to apologise for not taking a photo of my bike lying on the ground as it was leaking lots of petrol but I took one after which shows the mark left.
AND I applied (or tried to) the skills to lift the bike doing squads but it wasn't easy with all the gear on. Then a guy came along and gave me a hand (to lift the bike).
Anyway, that's (one of) my story for today.
