And great videos Cummo! - I'm sure we can all relate to those mishaps at some point or another!

Recently caught this interesting video a few days ago. Obviously not the same as working with a rallye bike, but the principle should be the same

Kewl!

The other technique that is not quite so dramatic, is to spin it round on the side stand - standing to the left side of the bike, drop the side stand, turn the steering hard left, and grab the rear right of the fender above the exhaust to lift the rear wheel, and drag it round...

Note. this only works if you have a decent side stand... so not really suitable for KTMs x

that's probably a little tricky in deep sand too

Hee hee - almost impossible I'd say... unless you use your foot as a puck perhaps? - but that would bloody hurt!

For deep sand, what if you put your side stand IN your helmet and then turn using your technique. I know it is far fetched but when you are tired... and you save your foot!
What do you think?

How about slipping a sheet of something durable somewhere tucked away (like under the saddle) and use that if you need to use the side-stand turn technique. A bit far fetched though, do you really want to have to be unpacking something every time you do it?
