The video is a great way to do it. Just be sure and don't let the clutch out too fast and kill the engine while employing this practice, especially turning uphill. Don't ask me how I know this.

So, Monty, how do you know that you can kill the engine by letting the clutch out too fast while turning uphill to the right???

I can't see the vids on the iPod, but if they are the Captain Crash, those are great!
Anyways, it's like how you learned to coordinate the clutch and throttle without stalling - all about getting "in touch" with the physics of the machine.
One tip is to think about the turn before you come to a stop - position yourself in the outer portion of the lane and angle yourself more towards the right, this way you are making a more gradual turn. That's not to say you shouldn't become comfortable with tight turns - you just need the practice and you'll get there.

....another reason why the "Ride Like A Pro" DVDs are so valuable. They cover this and many other safety and skill related areas exceedingly well. Unfortunately, those who don't have them, or haven't seen them, have no clue what they're missing. Personal opinion -- but If I owned a bike dealership, every sale, without exception, would be accompanied by one of their DVDs. They absolutely "make a difference."

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.

OK, I'll fess up. Bought my Triumph Tiger 1050 in July of '08. Hadn't owned it but several days and tried the uphill right turn from a dead standstill at a traffic light. Let the clutch out too fast, killed the engine, and down I went. Luckily, fell in the grass and no damage done. The 950T has a much more forgiving clutch and throttle than the Triumph.
