Hey guys, I've got my fzr250 up and running recently and I have been riding around a fair bit. On my own I just go around the neighbourhood it's pretty quiet where I live so I just go on a few winedy roads here and there a few cars but nothing to worry too much about. When I go out on major roads my girlfriend rides behind be she wants to do that for a while until she's sure I'm confident to go out on my own. .... anyway I digress. What I want to know is how fast do you guys usually turn right left or a full U turn around a roundabout, there are plenty in my area especially along pittwater road and I find myself shifting right down to first gear and going around them at snails pace (max maybe 10 - 15km). I've been trying to get faster but I just can't. I'm thinking I need to lean a lot more but the roundabouts are often bumpy or really convex in nature (ie the point I start from is higher or lower than the point I want to get to), and I'm a bit weary to do it because I go so slow I feel like I'm just gonna stick my foot out. So do you guys have some tips on how I can do left, right and U turns faster. I haven't seen nor do I know anyone else that rides so I can't follow them and see how they do it =\. Oh another thing my bike isn't really torquey at all and if I don't go round in first it will stall on me (cuz I go so slow), thats also a reason I'd like to learn how to go a bit faster, but especially from stop to go I'm really slow.
