Hand Signals while riding

I was reading a thread in another forum and came across this. I knew there were signals just didn't know if they were universal or whatever. But here is the link for the hand signals.

I like those...some are kinda funny. I had to learn them pretty much on my own though. I have noticed that not enough riders warn of cops ahead...that one is most useful!

That stuff always trips me out ...

When I first started riding, I went with these middle aged Harley/BMW types. They did pre flight checks, different riding formations, hand signals, bla ... bla. I found out one of these experts ditched their bike on a Uturn later ... I always have one easy riding philosophy ... ride. Bikers need less rules not more. My two cents.

I mean come on: "Tap top of helmet, or hand on helmet" = cop nearby ... duh. How about notice your buds break lights and keep an eye out ... for on coming traffic ... flash the high beam. "I need gas" ...lol. Oh no, john boy's hungry lol. Just ride.

Do any of you think people give bad signals some times? I have had the tap on the helmet displayed, and never see any sign of LEO.

I have also read that tapping the top of the helmet means your hi-beam is on.

I have gotten bad signals from other riders. Mostly new riders coming the opposite direction.
That list is really good. There was stuff in there that I have never and probly will never use though.

I keep checking it every so often but it looks like the link is dead for good. Wouldnt hurt to remove the sticky from this, and let it wrap out till a new link is posted.

i am acustomed to the pat on the helmet for LEO, using feet to point at objects on the road, if someone is trying to park their car under my licence plate i will turn around and give them a firm point to back off, they usually get the idea if not i point with another finger. when riding with buddies we mostly have chatterboxes, if not pulling up beside, a honk and point at the gas tank is enough indication of "HEY IM ABOUT TO BE WALKING SHORTLY!"
