Smallest possible radius for turning

Rear one, I had to drive today times desire with my Fm1e. Since I do not have a large place available with me, I on the road (dead end) before the Tuere tried. The road is ca.5m broad, but I do not get an idiom. Is doesn't it much-calibrate at all because of me, much at my bike or much-calibrates goes on (to narrow) the road? Which smallest radius can drive YOU?

My electric bikes will turn around in a 4-5 ft radius. Haven't quite gotten there with the nitro bike yet!

But you need a nice wide area to have fun with your Fm-1e. A narrow road limits things a lot.

(Man, that translator is kinda rough)

Minimum radius I was able to turn is 1,5 metres. But it is uncertain. 2-2,5 metres is safe to turn. I'm talking about my scratch-built bike and don't know how about NF or TT. Steve is right about that translator.

Thx for answer. It was a test with the babelfish. But i thing it is better if i write it with my school english.
I have see any videos on http://www.skiptonclub.net/ from bike race where the guys drive the bike around very smal radius. I can┤t this at the moment but I don`t know if maybe that the settings of my bike is not OK. I must to probe the thing!
Greetings Roland
PS. I hope my english is better

If you drive it slowly, it can turn at 1.5-2meters... But it sure takes practice...
And, yes, Roland, your english is very good and understandable.

the plettenberg extreme engine set to soft-med timing will allow you to turn within a couple of feet.

Same here,.. I can turn within a couple of feet too, with the Cbars only touching the ground once or twice thru the turn.. It also depends on your bikes setup,.. if it's stock it has a wider turn, but if you pull in the rake on the forks and raise the rear end a bit it'll turn in nice and sharp..!
