What is the actual turning circle of your bike when it is walked around at full lock?

that was full lock, but I guess your question is - What is the diameter of the turn at full lock?

I would have to measure that with tape, but I guess it is right at 15' ? (5m)

I tried circling in between the cones but the bags kept knocking the cones over :

Beautiful.  I've often wondered what the difference is between the circle you can run when you are leaning into it versus what the bike will do walked around at full lock.

I haven't had the guts to get to full lock when going around the cones YET.   :'(
