For those of us who ride their motorcycle off road, we all have had this once or twice; You're riding up a steep hill, and suddenly the angle gets steeper than what you expected. Continuing will spell a fall for sure.

So you'll need to turn around. Even if you have a light enduro motorcycle, it's not easy.

There are ways of doing it by seesawing your motorcycle while using your breaks. That's the way most enduro courses will teach you.

Ricardo Kuhn spin
Here's Ricardo Kuhn's way (Ricardo has contributed to this site with several articles {link}). Notice that his motorcycle is not a light enduro one, but a heavy BMW.

The method is called the "Kuhn Spin"..... don't try it at home folks, unless you've had a lot of training (it does help having a flat twin engine).

Thanks for the lesson Ricardo.
