Maneuvering a big, heavy motorcycle around on tight off-road trails can be a real challenge. Using proper form and some key tricks of the trade make it easier than you’d think, however.

Watch expert motorcycle instructors Bret Tkacs and Paul Solomonson teach us how to turn adventure bikes around on narrow trails. Whether you come across a downed tree, deep snow, or a locked gate, you’ll want to know how to get your big bike turned around in a tight space.

No matter your size and strength, adventure bikes are imposing machines to handle, especially in confined spaces. Knowledge is power, however, and anyone can get control and confidence on a big bike on the trail with a few tips and tricks, and a lot of practice. Luckily, you can practice these skills on smaller bikes to gain confidence, and the skills directly transfer.

Save your pride and turn around with style and grace after learning these techniques from the pros. For example, did you know you can use your own legs as a tripod?
