I think if you are having trouble in slow speed turns and stopping, then you need to take the experience riders course. I was taught not to use the hand brake in those maneuvers and never put both feet down until the bike is completely stopped. That right foot stays on the brake until your bike has stopped then you put it down. The course also teaches you not to look at the ground in front of you during a turn even in a parking lot. Look at where you want to end up and I know that is not on the ground. I've been riding for 55 years and in the past 27 have taken that course twice. And while stationed in Minot, ND was helping the Safety team on base by demonstrating what they were teaching. Finally, I want to say it is not the bike but the rider.
