With practice, it's possible to execute a 180 degree turn on a two-lane road.
Lock-to-lock on the handlebars,
turn your body and your head in the direction of travel,
look at where you want to go,
throttle-clutch (and brake on non-integrated ABS systems),
feet on the footpegs, lean into the turn.
Practice in a large parking lot using the parallel lane parking lines.
Start with what you're comfortable with,
then decrease the number of lines it takes to execute the 180-degree turn.
Just straighten up before you try to stop.
