Potentially an argument could be made for
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:turning_radius

While it is true that in principle this could be derived from the way
geometry, in reality for the use case for which the tag was designed,
the geometry is typically not available in enough detail (in the case of
logging vehicles there are further considerations too).

PS: while OT, I would suggest not relying on a navigation device to
determine how fast you should drive/ride on an unknown stretch of road
-particularly- on a motorcycle.
