    What tickles me the most is to watch someone give the hand signal to turn right, then turn lerft....!!

    I've always used hand signals & have my headlight on. It really ticked me off when auto manufacturers started making cars with daytime lights.
    That took our visibility edge away. These days it probably doesn't matter what we do, we'll just get rear ended by a texter.

    I always use hand signals and turn signals. When I ride with bikes I use standard bike hand signals, but when I ride alone I point my arm straight out to the left for a left turn and straight out to the right for a right turn. 90% of people in cars don't even know half of the normal road rules besides bike hand signals. I will bet if you use the standard bike right turn hand signal you just distract and confuse them.

    I just had the 56 inspected and was disappointed that he didn't check my newly fixed turn signals. He did say that not having the brake light work with the front brake was a problem. I convinced him that was the way it came from the factory and he passed it.
