Default Cross roads turning Radius

Is it Just me or Does the Turning Radius suck on this Bike?
Has anyone changed bars to fix it? if so which ones?

2015 Suzuki V-Strom DL650 (bought new 4/26/17)
2006 Triumph Rocket III Classic
1/4 turn throttle ring
Tank riser

No bike runs like another brand. Long = more comfort and leg room. Go to Ride Like A Pro videos and see what Vics can do. Maybe you need to buy one of their DVDs, they are extremely helpful.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
2017 Spyder F3 Limited - keeps this old guy in the wind and riding with friends.
Cure that ugly stand up license plate with the cheapest and best laydown bracket. Click this:
